Working with Housebuilders

From suburban extensions and brownfield masterplans to rural settlements and garden-city communities, we work with leading housebuilders to design award-winning homes and neighbourhoods.

We understand volume housebuilding and have worked successfully over many years with leading developers. Our Architects and Urban Designers are experienced in design across all RIBA Stages and use BIM and DfMA processes to create high quality desirable homes with quick and efficient construction.

We create considered plotting layouts that identify site capacity and support land acquisition, design commercially sound, sustainable masterplans, and secure multi-phase planning applications in collaboration with planning authorities, communities and wider stakeholders.

Creating beautiful places for people

We understand what makes great places. With experience working across varied rural and suburban settings, we develop a thorough understanding of a location and creatively respond to its context, natural features, and character in our design. Combining  our masterplanning urban design and stakeholder engagement expertise, we maximise the design potential of every place.

Commercially sound and sustainable masterplans

We are skilled at delivering large-scale masterplans across a variety of contexts from greenfield village settings to expansive suburban brownfield sites. Our services range from creating considered plotting layouts that identify site capacity and support land acquisition to designing commercially sound, sustainable masterplans and securing multi-phase planning applications in collaboration with stakeholders. Our outputs are deliverable, future-proofed and underpinned by best-practice landscapes and townscape principles.

// BPTW’s team has put together an exceptional masterplan for Billet Road. From a client perspective, BPTW’s service has been design driven and commercially sensitive, helping us make sound land acquisition and development decisions //

Supporting successful land and project bids

Aided by our in-house bid team, we have a demonstrable track record in supporting housebuilders to acquire sites with well-considered, high-quality proposals which balance our clients’ needs against those of landowners. Our successes range from rapid feasibilities to support financially driven private land acquisitions to comprehensive design-led submissions to public sector landowners like regional councils and Homes England, where the quality of our bid responses and design proposals are the differentiating factor.

Designing fabulous homes customers love

We work closely with our clients’ development and sales teams to create homes and spaces that customers love. Our designs are award recognised for their beautiful design and detailing, with house types, layouts and features based on a sound understanding of market values and purchasers’ needs.

// We have been fortunate to have selected such a strong architectural partner in BPTW. From the very first briefing meetings, it was clear that the team would create amazing architecture and place setting that our customers would love – and they do! // Andy Fancy (former) Managing Director, Countryside Properties 

Design quality, efficiency and innovation

We design buildable schemes. With experience in all RIBA Stages, our architects and technologists understand volume housebuilding and the efficiencies of standard house types. They are well-versed in designing to meet the local context to avert planning delays and facilitate efficient delivery. We use BIM Methodologies and DfMA systems to create homes that are delivered to a high quality, quicker and more efficiently.
