BOND BRYAN

MEMBERS

At Bond Bryan we are architects, designers, masterplanners, researchers, strategic advisors, landscape and urban designers, interior designers, collaborators, and visualisers.

Over 30 years, we have carefully built our reputation for the design and delivery of high-quality projects in both the private and public sector.

Our clients know us for our imagination and our expertise; we define the way in which we work with passion and integrity, and it’s the combination of these qualities that makes us what we are – a practice with a culture of excellence that pervades every commission that we undertake. At the heart of all our work is our client’s vision.

We focus upon the creation of lasting sustainable environments that will enrich the lives of people and their communities. We love to make places where people will gather, learn, make and create.

The move towards a net zero carbon society is something which we are deeply passionate about at Bond Bryan; it has always been built into what we do – but now, more so than ever, the need to respond to the global climate crisis is driving the sort of practice that we aim to be – both today and into the future.

Matt is also the Director who heads up our ‘Carbon Matters’ thinktank group – a group of Bond Bryan’s most environmentally-focussed employees – that tackles the issue of our own efforts towards carbon neutrality, whilst also exploring how to become a wholly zero carbon practice – both in our daily operations and our designs.

    Peter Kyle

  • Despite the global impact of COVID-19 the UK property industry is resilient. FOOTPRINT will provide a forum for everyone to create a deliverable agenda for sustainable growth in the UK property market.
    Francis Hilton
    Pelican Developments
  • The construction sector has a huge role to play in enabling Local Authorities to meet ambitious carbon zero targets. I believe that FOOTPRINT will be the event that supports the creative discussions and working relationships required to achieve Zero Carbon living.
    Duncan Baker-Brown
    Architect, Lecturer at University of Brighton & Campaigner for Circular Economy
  • At last an event that addresses the key issues facing design, construction and development in the UK. The rich mix of consultants, clients, stakeholders and government together with the great location will make Footprint a huge success.
    Paul Monaghan Director of Allford Hall Monaghan Morris Architects
    Liverpool City Region Design Champion and founding member of Architects Declare

    Adam Brockley
    Founder of Scape Student Living
  • As we move to create the ‘new normal’ post Covid, we have an unprecedented opportunity to re-write the rules around our environmental impact on the planet, this conference does exactly that.

  • FOOTPRINT is a hugely exciting opportunity to address the climate emergency which we all face as global citizens.

  • FOOTPRINT has been set up to answer a need in the property market. We have all traipsed off to the South of France previously to meet up and discuss property issues. This is no longer a responsible action given the carbon footprint of getting there. Combined with the exit of Britain from the EU, we, in the UK market need to meet and discuss our national and international concerns. Footprint is set up to permit us to do this in an accessible, affordable and responsible way
