Our passion for design has been applied to an extensive and varied range of projects and sectors. From outline concepts to detailed design, our wealth of experience, innovation and knowledge allows us to create exceptional designs that enhances and enriches spaces.
We have a demonstrable track record of exceptional delivery over a diverse range of projects. This experience alongside practical resources and the ability to manage each project’s priorities, ensure that we are able to deliver consistently to the highest of standards and to work with agreed budgets and timelines.
We work with our clients to map their stakeholder landscape, and then tailor a bespoke approach which can include hands on workshops, focus groups, surveys, pop up events and formal consultations. Feedback is collated and analysed to inform the design response which ensures a successful outcome.
We understand that the best approach to the design specification and procurement of furniture, fittings and equipment is evidence-based and defined by the end users. We combine this evidence with our knowledge of best practices in design, manufacture, and supply, to create a tailored solution for each organisation.
We have the skills, knowledge and experience to deliver the CDM principal designer role. In this role we plan, manage, monitor and coordinate matters relating to health and safety in the design phase, ensuring that risks are minimised and managed.
We are able to become involved in a project at any stage. We can cover the exectutive designer role in taking a RIBA Stage 3 pack and moving it on through the technical and then construction phases of a project.
We work with our clients to interrogate their property options and help inform decisions. This can include comparisons of current and new premises, analyses of potential growth or consolidation and test fits. This early process can help to define a brief and create clear criteria in the search for a space which will meet the business needs.
BIM (building information modelling) involves the holistic management of information in a digital world. As part of Ryder, we draw on the expertise and support of BIM academy which was cofounded by Northumbria University and Ryder Architecture in 2010 as a centre of excellence for digital engineering and transformation.
We recognise our responsibility in constructing a more inclusive society and strive to ensure that all of our projects can be accessed confidently, independently and with dignity regardless of age, disability, race, religion, gender or sexual orientation. We aim to design beyond standard guidelines and accessibility compliance.
Sustainability transcends all of our work and is a fundamental cornerstone of our approach to design and specification. We continue to push boundaries on our projects and work closely with our clients to enable them to meet their sustainability goals. We can work to achieve any of the certification systems for sustainable built environments.
We have an in-house team of experts who provide thought leadership into a range of subjects. Our projects always begin with an element of research as we get to know our clients and their market, but we are also often comissioned to research into a specific topic or movement to help inform design and business decisions.
Understanding the significance of historic environments is the foundation of our approach to heritage led regeneration. We ensure that interiors within heritage environments respond positively to the assets, and are experienced in working with Grade 1, Grade 2*, and Grade 2 listed buildings together with world heritage sites.
