We have a long established working knowledge of the HLF and a strong track record of delivering successful HLF funding applications. To date we

have undertaken 19 Heritage Grant and Landscape Partnership commissions at Round 1 and / or

Round 2 with 100% success in terms of a funding award outcome. Grants awarded to date total

over £39 million.

Going that little bit further than the basic HLF requirements

for a Round One bid will improve the likelihood of a project’s progression to the next round.

Round One & Round Two


We help to prepare Round 1 and Round 2 applications, supported by interpretation planning and design development through RIBA Stage 2 (Concept Design) to RIBA Stage 4 (Technical Design).


The extent to which stakeholders are engaged in meaningful conversation and their needs and aspirations understood and met, is one of the key measures of a project’s success. We apply a range of research, consultation and creative techniques including qualitative and quantitative analyses, workshops, focus groups, brainstorming, formative evaluation and testing.





From RIBA Stage 5 to 7 we provide a comprehensive project management service to ensure your project

is delivered on time, within budget and to the

highest quality.
