We have extensive experience in the design and delivery of many forms of building projects for a variety of private and public sector clients throughout the UK. Our combined professional experience encompasses:

  • Residential projects for the elderly including retirement living, assisted living and sheltered housing developments.
  • Specialist care home projects for individuals suffering from dementia, psycho-geriatric units, learning disability units and young disabled units.

  • Integrated healthcare facilities and GP practices.

  • Large and small residential projects including large mixed retail/flatted developments for commercial developers, suburban housing, flatted schemes, re-developments of existing buildings, and high-end private one-off houses.

The Planform team take a proactive approach to the design and project delivery process. We believe the design process should be a collaborative process. We look to introduce new ideas to promote discussion and thinking that will lead to the best possible design solution within the client’s budget.
