Social Value

We believe that our activities should achieve positive outcomes for our clients and business partners, the community, and our employees. We champion social inclusion and cohesion. Our focus on generating social value is balanced with socio-economic and socio-environmental impacts.

We are committed to good design that maximises social benefits for the communities in which our projects are based. We aim to create sustainable solutions from the outset, engaging with all stakeholders and driving social improvements including access, connectivity and transport, inclusion, health and wellbeing, amenity and biodiversity.

We volunteer our time and skills to charities and community projects. We support similar minded organisations and individuals with direct sponsorship and financial contributions.

We actively invest in the future of our industry with commitment of our time, energy and knowledge into the education of Architecture’s next generation.

We are supporting members of the Architects Mental Wellbeing Forum and members of the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter Supporters Network. We have achieved Investors In People [IIP] ‘We invest in wellbeing’ silver and are working towards gold accreditation.
