Our ethos

Since our conception, BBA has been focused on creating a multi-skilled and diverse workforce. This aspiration for a multi-faceted company is demonstrated by the skills and beliefs of the present Directors.

With our combination of skillsets and expertise, we have been able to design and deliver an extensive portfolio of private and public work. A small selection of this is shown in the project pages.

We pride ourselves on working closely and collaboratively with clients, and strongly believe that we cannot create a successful design without understanding how it will be delivered, developed and used through its life-time.

Our approach

Each project is successfully delivered by:

Creative Design – We choose a dedicated project team, chosen specifically for their relevant skills, including in-house specialist knowledge & technical knowhow.

Teamwork – We use our skills in collaboration, organisation, communication, co-ordination and leadership.

Management – We are adept in resolving issues, ensuring timely & cost-effective delivery, addressing unexpected developments, maintaining quality and proficiency. We manage and understand the risk and opportunities, to ensure early decisions are made regarding programme and financial viability.

Commitment – We care deeply about the community and the places that we design and deliver.
