gdm are proud of our wide and comprehensive experience across a range of project sectors. Our skill base is varied and considerable bringing a unique experience approach which adds significant value to the design and procurement process. Our teams are carefully selected for each project to ensure the right experience and flair is directed to the needs of a particular scheme. We believe in attention to the detail whether this is at the early feasibility stage or the final piece of construction information. All projects, large or small receive the same level of attention and commitment throughout the whole gdm team.


We act for private clients, local and national housing developers and housing associations. Our projects range from bespoke houses through to large estates of 100 to 500 units. Dwellings range throughout the housing spectrum and blocks of flats. We are able to advise on feasibility of development and prepare masterplans for viability and planning.


Our experience in the design of industrial and warehouse style developments stretches back more than 30 years. We have designed and administered schemes for one off bespoke units, large single and multi-storey warehouses and high density speculative projects. Our clients include multi-national blue chip companies as well as private developers and SME’s.


We have a flair for creating vibrant and invigorating buildings and workspaces. We are able to provide the complete building and interior design solution and help clients to envisage their environment through state of the art visual technology. We have carried out projects from redesigning a reception area through to landmark buildings and company head offices.


Our experience is throughout all levels and aspects of the education sector. We have completed projects for Nurseries to schools and universities. Our schemes include teaching spaces as well as sports halls, lecture theatres, refectories and even student accommodation. We have the proven flair to take and expand upon a brief and to deliver a scheme that exceeds expectation.

Health and Community

Our wide experience and understanding of this specialist environment ranges from projects direct for the NHS to private funded facilities. We have designed and completed projects for the delivery of multi/group GP surgeries to residential and dementia care homes for the elderly. Our knowledge of this specialist sector is valuable for the design and team delivery of, sometimes, high risk projects.


Masterplanning is the key to the delivery of a successful and cohesive larger scheme. gdm have the skills and experience to plan schemes and developments from a housing site to retail parks and industrial estates and larger mixed use settlements. We are experienced at working within and leading teams that collectively analyse the influences identify the strategy and propose a viable and deliverable project.

Buildings and environments for the leisure, food and non-food shopping experience are established sectors in the gdm portfolio. We understand how to design and create public spaces and interactive places. Our leisure experience includes stadiums, pavilions, all weather sports fields, sports halls, public and private swimming pools and leisure centres. Within the retail sector we have designed and delivered schemes from large retail parks and in town shopping centres down to boutique niche units. Our innovation and experience brings a unique value to the viability and an individual edge to commercial projects.
