Facilitation and organisational development

Why does design matter? How can an organisation adopt design led thinking? Practically, what can I do about it as a planner, councillor or developer? These are just some of the questions we answer in our 'hands on' sessions and bespoke packages

Design Review

Reviewing project designs, chairing design review panels for local authorities and developers in London, the South East and North West of England


Advice and design facilitation for Garden Towns and Villages. Social value advice and reports. Design strategies and standards for neighbourhoods, homes, schools and workplaces to manage and deliver high quality housing and masterplans


Leading conversations, creating and managing high profile debates and initiatives to improve access to good design. A focus on social value and diversity in architecture and construction.


This was the best session of my time at #ecobuild2018 really thought provoking and well chaired...a shame I had to leave early to catch the train back to Manchester!

Jane leads our large-scale housing related design reviews [...]. More than that though, Jane is an excellent facilitator, able to get to the real issues but also foster a constructive dialogue.
