We are place creators

Our purpose is simple – to create

The Future Beautiful™


As place creators we are inspired to re-energise under-utilised and unloved places to create environments that encapsulate the imagination and respond responsibly to the social and environmental challenges of the communities we touch.

Our work seeks to think differently and push the boundaries of both the physical space and the emotional impact on the people that live, work and play in the places we create.

About us
The ability to imagine, re-energise and create places that respond to the changing expectations of our customers is more important than ever. Our purpose and way of thinking about property has to tackle head on the environmental, technological and social challenges in the world today. I am in no doubt that this will be achieved by working with great teams and partners that think differently, push boundaries and go beyond the norm.
Ian Morrison Founder/CEO, MRICS
Successfully delivering thoughtfully designed, sustainable new communities and workplaces that re-energise and regenerate places is my passion. In my 20 years’ experience with major consultancies and developers I have advised on some of the most complex projects in the UK, working collaboratively to unlock value and realise delivery for both the public and private sector. I see a key element of effective delivery being to embed quality at every stage and to ensure all projects are at the leading edge of thinking.
Tom Dolan-Bent Executive Director, MRICS
I believe strongly in understanding our end users' expectations and how consumer trends influence the role and performance of buildings and places. My background across investment, asset management and development allows me to view our market from different perspectives.
Ben Davies Asset/Development Manager, MRICS
I feel now, more than ever, is an exciting time to be working in the property industry. Changing trends in requirements have developed how people use and create new environments. My background in Geography and Urban Design allows me to appreciate the different values when creating places.
Laura Brett Development Surveyor
Whether the economic outlook be good or bad, the one constant is the need for rigorous analysis and relevant financial structuring when considering real estate investment and development. In over twenty years, I’ve experienced everything from large scale urban regeneration to single unit investment. This experience of a broad spectrum of property finance twinned with an impartial approach allows me to provide guidance and advice to property professionals helping them to maximise the return from their opportunities.

We are driven everyday by our passion to create The Future Beautiful™. To achieve this we take a fresh approach to property and partnerships, guided by the infusion of our three core principles:

people’s lives

Enhancing the social value of the communities we touch and building a legacy for future generations. We focus on unlocking opportunities to improve the physical and emotional well-being of the people and communities we interact with along the development journey.

our world

Protecting our planet and reconnecting with nature forms an essential part of our vision. We acknowledge the challenges in this space but we always act responsibly to shape solutions and optimise technology to make a better world.
