Joined up thinking for the built environment

High quality, efficient design is a group effort. Corde brings together ADP, AKS Ward and KJ Tait: three leading practices in the fields of architecture, structural, civil and environmental engineering, and mechanical and electrical building services.

Together, our design response is more inspired, better considered, and more consistently delivered.
The reason is simple. Uniting architecture, structural engineering, and mechanical and electrical design, we avoid traditional 'silos' of expertise. Instead, we bring our staff together around a table. Working so closely together, questions can be answered more quickly, and ideas shared more easily. Right from the beginning, through every design stage, our teams are genuinely talking: asking questions, solving problems and sharing expertise.

We utilise Building Information Modelling (BIM) to create a responsive design solution. Integrated teams work in one BIM model. Models are adapted and adjusted in real-time, allowing our teams to progress rapidly. Integrated building data allows us to test and analyse performance, reducing risk and improving quality and deliverability.

For our clients, the result is a more agile and efficient process that doesn't compromise on creativity or quality.

With studios located throughout the UK, we are able to deliver a local service to clients nationwide.
