Culture and Values


We understand that the difference between people is valuable, and that different ways of seeing and doing can represent new forms of knowledge that can be put to use.


We promote a ‘can do’ approach: the key to success when working in difficult situations, on critical solutions for clients and stakeholders.


We enjoy a passion for learning: to understand our clients’ goals and needs, the complex cultures with which we work, the diverse places in which we work, and research new solutions.


We seek a better way: we question the status quo, continually look for practical improvements and remain flexible to quickly respond to innovation.


We aim to be organised and systematic: focussing our talents on our clients’ goals, and managing risk in problematic environments.


We believe in human development: we focus on building capacity, sustainability and local ownership, planning the built environment around people’s needs.
