Architectural Design and Planning

When producing plans for developments, architects need to consider the functionality and structural integrity of their plan, and also the aesthetics and the integration with surroundings. Managing the many factors that must be considered and incorporated into architecture, design and town planning is a challenge which requires a deep understanding of the field and excellent communication throughout.

RSK and its subsidiaries Pellings, KMG Partnership, Smith + Kennedy Architects, and ATP offer a wide variety of services to support developers in all elements of architectural design and town planning, from site selection and scheme design to completion and handover. By forming close working relationships with our clients, we develop an in-depth understanding of their goals and deliver efficient and cost-effective solutions.

Experienced team

We recognise that each project and site location is unique and endeavour to design original architecture that integrates smoothly with its surroundings, while fulfilling its purpose successfully. Thanks to the experience and knowledge of our dedicated team, we can offer a wide variety of architecture, design and town planning services. Our architects provide a full range of master-planning and development services, ranging from initial development appraisal, feasibility studies and risk assessment of sites to development of concepts and schemes to achieve planning consent.

Managing risk

With our extensive architectural experience, we understand our clients’ concerns about risks throughout their project. Developments are complex and thus accompanied by complex risks. We balance the conflicting opinions and aspirations of multiple stakeholders, including the local planning authority and the community, to provide clients with simple solutions that provide long-term value for money and positive placemaking. Our high-quality designs are produced with a focus on budget constraints and buildability.

Single-source solutions

We act as a single-source solution for architectural, structural and civil engineering consultancy, assisting our clients in gaining planning permission and meeting restrictions, and staying within budgets. Our services include consultancy for lead designing and stakeholder management. Thanks to our team’s wealth of knowledge, we have the skillset to offer client design and technical advisors, landscape architects, interior design, building information modelling and town planning advice. Our extensive building survey services determine the suitability of developments for refurbishment, redeveloping or extension. We can also manage the approval of building regulations and produce contract documents and scheme designs. These services are offered as part of a broad range of services for the built environment from the wider rsk group, which also include site finding and investment.

Wealth of knowledge

By offering a wide range of consultancy, planning and design services as part of a single-source, integrated solution, we provide our clients with cost-effective solutions tailored to the requirements of their project. Our clients trust in our extensive experience and breadth of knowledge to provide comprehensive services promptly and to consistently high standards.
