Time spent preparing for a built environment project is vital. This stage is when you, as the client, have most control and influence. Developing a clearly defined project vision will help you gain the most from your project. Increasing the value good design can add.
Integreat Plus is able to provide a range of services to support the initial stages [RIBA Stages A-B] of building, public space, or neighbourhood projects. These are specifically tailored to support charities, social enterprises, community organisations & local authorities.
We will help develop the initial vision into a detailed brief by using creativity and strategic thinking to identify possible project opportunities. Testing the feasibility of these against the vision, potential sites and development constraints. We use our skills as architects and urbanists to look at the bigger picture, identifying relationships and synergies that will maximise the value of the project to you and your neighbours.
A range of services tailored to your project:
- Site Analysis & Appraisal
- Identifying a Clear Project Vision
- Brief Development workshops
- Design Best Practice Case Studies
- Stakeholder consultation workshops
- 3D Modelling & Visualisations
- Options Appraisals
- Identifying development & planning constraints
- Initial Sketch Designs
- Strategic Planning
- Project Budget Advice [in conjunction with a quantity surveyor]
- Environmental Sustainability Advice
These studies & the design brief can be articulated into a well-designed briefing document, used to support the future development and raise awareness of the project. Particularly when seeking funding.
Supporting the business case:
Developing the business case for a project is also critical to its success. We are able to draw on a diverse panel with sector specific expertise in business planning to support your organisation through this process. In addition to our wealth of experience in securing funding for projects.
Once the feasibility and funding for a project has been determined, Integreat Plus can use its extensive knowledge of the sector to help your organisation procure the best possible design team for the project.

“I can say directly that Site Galleryʼs experience of working with Integreat was one of the best we have had with external consultants. They set up realistic timelines which they consistently met and they guided the Gallery through a complex process. The piece of work ended with the Councillors and CEO backing a major development in the City and civic partners coming on board with match funding.”
