Adding social value

We believe that projects and programmes in the built environment are only truly successful when they deliver real benefits to the local community, including enhancing wellbeing, building social capital and protecting the environment. This focus on delivering more than buildings is called ‘social value’.

Working with architecture practices specializing in public housing, we have built a strong reputation for developing comprehensive and imaginative programmes that enhance the social value of developments across London.

Our portfolio spans work in Enfield, Harrow, South Kilburn, Wembley and other boroughs across east London. It includes designing and delivering social value programmes that tackle issues such as youth engagement and unemployment. Through our social value programmes young people benefit from training, mentoring, work experience, apprenticeships and other support.

And with over 20 years experience of community and youth engagement, we have a track record in implementing programmes that have a lasting impact. After the commissioned work is completed, we continue to engage them through our Building Futures programme, ensuring there is continuous support for aspiring young architects.
