No-obligation initial consultation
Contact us for a discussion of your requirements with no obligation. We offer a free initial consultation, scope and fixed-fee quote. We offer affordable and highly competitive fees and will tailor packages to accommodate your circumstances.
Our consultants work with you from the start to finish of the development process from initial advice, through design, planning and delivery or any specific stages you require and work to your requirements and brief. We are very responsive in communication with clients and can deliver work at short notice, accommodating most timescales.
Our ethos is that specialist knowledge of the local context including landscape, architectural, planning and environmental qualities of the area enables our work to be well integrated and successful and we work closely with council planning officers and community representatives to secure support as often as possible.
Based in Sussex we serve an area that covers the South Downs National Park and the districts of Winchester, East Hampshire, Chichester, Adur, Worthing, Arun, Horsham, Wealden, Mid Sussex, Brighton and Hove, Lewes and Eastbourne.
Our name is a reference to Rudyard Kipling's quote about the landscape of the South Downs: "Our blunt, bow-headed, whale-backed Downs."
