Let’s start a conversation
Good design doesn’t need to be extravagant or expensive, but poor design really does end up costing a lot, whether it is because of defects, lack of efficiency or simply missed opportunities that by the time they are spotted are just too expensive to put right.
The starting point for good design is simple, we believe, it’s like the starting point of a good conversation. You need the right people in the room, listening to each other and freely exchanging ideas.
At Waddington’s we try to put ourselves in our clients’ shoes. We always put our clients at the centre of our conversations, listening to what they need and so enabling us to edge towards shared solutions.
Internally, we do the same thing. Our design process is a democratic team conversation, where the best ideas win. We debate, even argue, the smallest of details to get them right. Sometimes this means doing things more than once, in order to distil our ideas into the most refined solution.
We see design as a vehicle to achieve innovative design, and are always striving for elegant simplicity. Lean design is both beautiful and cost effective, and our shared, multi-disciplinary experience enables us to get to the point fast.
Whether it is squeezing more usable space out of a building, or finding ways to introduce more natural daylight and fresh air, we are passionate about delivering measurable, cost-effective design benefits.
We are an approachable team and don’t like ‘fluff’, we prefer engaging collaboratively and focussing on better design and longer lasting solutions.
Good design really does mean better business, so let’s start a conversation….
