Planning - Architecture - Sustainable Development
EXPERIENCED IN PLANNING GREAT PLACES
The professionals who make up Amos Ellis Consulting (AEC) have decades of experience pioneering and successfully delivering ground breaking schemes. We've been key to bringing about a range of major and micro-projects, from new stations and transportation, regeneration, consultation, residential and nationally significant energy projects, to smaller sustainable eco-developments and architectural redesigns.
No matter the scale of project, the AEC team is personally invested in delivering great outcomes. We’re strategists, consultants and programme managers and prize our professionalism and chartered status as planners, architects and urban designers driven by a passion for better places.
We build from our experience, not just in planning projects - we've developed and delivered them too. This, combined with experience working in the heart of national and local Government, our deep technical and legal knowledge from zero carbon to social value and accessibility, and our sharp attention to detail, mean we guarantee delivering on the bottom line for you as client, but in ways that work with the community and support our environment too.
Our team has a wealth of experience taking major projects from inception to completion, both in the UK and abroad.
Particular areas of specialism include major regeneration and Development Area projects, complex planning permissions, and Development Consent Orders. We provide industry leadership in these areas and beyond, offering reviews and advice to senior executive teams and Board members on asset value enhancement, consulting strategy, and how best to achieve low and zero carbon outcomes. We sit on national and international Councils and Committees for these topics, and provide regular training, advice, and best practice across the industry.
RAIL & TRANSPORT
Our team has significant experience working on some of the UK's most exciting infrastructure projects, including the Brent Cross Thameslink planning programme, and the UK's first-ever DCO for the Ipswich Rail Chord.
WIND & TIDAL
Our experience includes work on behalf of some of the world's leading developers of wind and renewable energy including Scottish Power Renewables and on the most innovative green infrastructure projects, including the Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay project.
AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND ECO-DEVELOPMENTS
We have worked with Housing Associations to plan and construct innovative affordable housing on challenging small sites, delivering over 50 affordable homes for local communities. Our team has led the world's longest established environmental development charity to define a 'Garden City' standard for the 21st century, providing the basis for and helping to draft government planning policy guidance on eco-towns, zero carbon homes and eco-development, including Bicester Village, a landmark eco-town of 94 zero-carbon homes.
Regeneration is a key area of focus, with AEC experienced in delivering robust masterplans and major regeneration schemes. Our team has worked on some of Europe's and North America's largest regeneration projects, and has significant experiene delivering the complex masterplanning and approvals for a multi-phased, multi-stakeholder project.
ARCHITECTURE & URBAN DESIGN
Our architects have worked on multiple briefs including redevelopments, conversions, and new builds, using innovative and architecturally-brilliant concepts to design sustainable and inspiring spaces.
CONSULTATION & ENGAGEMENT
People-led planning is at the heart of what we do. AEC team members have run Planning for Real*, community engagement and consultation projects leading on stakeholder management and communications. Our public affairs work has brought together disparate voices and interests to forge new ways ahead.
