Welcome to Core Associates

Core Associates was formed in early 2007 and with the background of wide ranging experience across most sectors of the built environment having worked on projects ranging in scale from minor remodelling of existing buildings through to £1b framework contracts. This project experience has been gained by our senior team on a variety of projects over the past 30 years.

The focus of development of the practice was to concentrate on core strengths and develop through both direct project involvement and advisory work in the public and private sectors.

Strengths of the team include working in the Health, Education, Custodial, Defence, Residential, Retail, Transportation and Commercial sectors. 

"We have built a core team of management, design, construction and property professionals with the requisite skills and experience to offer our clients the best advice and service that we can. An interdisciplinary collaborative and integrated approach provides the most suitable blend of skill sets, experience and resource for our clients and particularly on more complex projects."

In all our commissions we endeavour to add value to both the process and product by engaging as far “upstream” and as strategically as possible. This is particularly important within the public sector where clients face many complex challenges in delivering projects. A key driver for us is to be able to understand these challenges and support development of more holistic, affordable and deliverable strategies to ensure that the business case for each project is supported by a robust strategic framework to help facilitate high quality project development and delivery.

We have particular strengths working in the capacity of Project Managers, Design Managers and Technical Advisors on complex procurements and the delivery of specific projects. The experience of our senior team is comparable with the embedded experience in many larger multi-disciplinary practices. Core Associates provide our clients with senior and dedicated consultancy support in an effective and a value added basis.


Core Associates is an RIBA Chartered Architects practice offering a broad range of services and including strategic and management advice that is additional to our core discipline as covered by the RIBA Plan of Work. As Architects we provide conventional architectural services alongside Masterplanning, Strategic Advisory Services, Project Management and Design Management.

 Architecture and Masterplanning
Our work as architects covers a broad range of project types and scales and our core team has been involved with projects in the UK and internationally for over 30 years. Masterplanning is a key part of the work that we do and often this relates to more strategic advice that we give clients in both the public and private sectors.

Strategic Advisory Services
Our hands-on experience covers a significant number of more Strategic Advisory Services including procurement related inputs, healthcare planning, asset management support, design and technical advice, project briefing and contract review support.
