Brief Writing – Design & Development Briefs

brief writing

The quality of a design or development brief is critical to gaining the most from your built environment project. Design consultants can misinterpret poorly written briefs. Failing to address the real issues of the project or diluting its original aspirations. A well written brief is essential to a successful project. Maximising the value good design can add to the process.

Working closely with you & your stakeholders. We’ll develop your initial thoughts into a clearly defined vision & brief. Collating this into a well-designed & articulated briefing document. This can help raise awareness, provoke discussion or procure funding for your project.

Tailored to your project:

We understand the importance of briefs tailored for their intended purpose and have experience producing briefs for:

  • Tendering architectural, landscape or urban design consultants
  • Developer competitions
  • Design competitions
  • Development briefs forming supplementary planning guidance
  • Design Guidance
  • Brief Writing Training
  • Brief Translation – creating visual interpretations of briefs to make them more engaging & easyily understood.
  • Regeneration Strategies

“I have rarely worked with a design team that was also capable of understanding delivery in difficult markets. While many understand that design can drive values, few understand how it actually works. The consequence is that good design becomes an obstacle – a cost that is disproportionate to the benefit. You are in a rare group of the best designers who understand how to make good design work – despite the terrifically difficult obstacle thrown up by weak property markets, tricky landowners, diffucult politcal situations and underperforming places.”
