Client advisory

We work in partnership with our sister company Consarc to offer fully accredited RIBA Client Advisory services.

 

We look beyond design, supporting our clients from within their organisations, bridging the gap between project management, design and delivery. By understanding client drivers from the inside and combining strong design thinking with detailed technical knowledge, we are able to help clients in formulating their vision and delivering their strategic goals effectively.

From shared space in our London studio, Consarc's accredited Client Advisers are experienced architects that will provide impartial and informed advice from the earliest stages of your project. Working with you, they can draw up a business case, prepare a project brief, help you select the right architects, set up and lead the project team and manage the procurement on your behalf.

They will help you to address the big questions:

  • Do you have a strategy or masterplan in place for all of your buildings?
  • Have you weighed up the pros and cons of all the options?
  • Do you know whether your chosen option will answer all your needs?
  • Are you confident of getting the best value at every step of the project?
  • How future-proof will the project be, and how sustainable?
  • Do you know the best procurement route to take?

“Consarc have played an essential advisory role in the complex refurbishment of Westminster City Hall. They have shown us how a critical friend, knowledgeable in design and considered in approach, can ensure teams make the best decisions, together.”

Helen Brydson, Senior Project Manager, Associate, Faithful & Gould


"Working with Consarc gives us and our clients a unique advantage. At Lambeth Civic Centre, Consarc's team were able to consult with end users on the detailed fitout, resulting in strong internal spaces that work seamlessly with the architecture.”
