Architecture, urban design and interiors
As a practice we have a reputation for high quality, well considered design. We believe that good quality design adds value to developers and users alike and is something we strive to realise in all our work. We take an urban design approach to all our schemes striving for proposals that are both aspirational and complimentary to their surroundings. We specialize in high density schemes that place as much emphasis upon the design of the public and private realm as the architecture of the buildings themselves.
The process of securing planning consent has become increasingly complex and challenging. KCA provide planning advice at appraisal stage, develop a planning strategy for each project, manage and coordinate all consultant inputs, act as agent and actively manage the applications process. Recognising it as the critical first step in any development project, over the years KCA have developed a consistently successful approach to achieving the best possible planning permission for our clients.
KCA provides leadership and management for all stages of the development process to a number of investors, land owners and developers. Over the years we have assembled a team of expert consultants to cover all project aspects from site sourcing and feasibility, planning and multi-disciplinary design inputs, through to final disposal.
Consultation and community engagement
Planning outcomes are undoubtedly influenced by the social, economic and political forces that are present locally. KCA understand the importance of understanding, responding to and where possible managing these influences. As a practice we are happy to lead and facilitate the consultation process in house or to work closely with specialist consultants to achieve these aims.
