It’s a new year and a new client for us here at Axis Design. We’re delighted to announce that we have been appointed onto Bromford Group’s framework for Architects.
Bromford have been providing homes in Central England since the 1960s. With 30 years of working for housing providers under our belt, we’re looking forward to applying our expertise to the framework and helping Bromford to achieve their goals, as well as ensuring that they continue to deliver high-quality housing projects. We’ll be working alongside Red Landscape on this framework – a collaboration which has proved successful on a number of award-winning projects to date including our work for the Birmingham Municipal Housing Trust.
More specifically, as well as applying our use of BIM for projects to be carried out under this framework, we’re also hoping to apply our extensive knowledge of sustainable housing design, including some of the lessons learned through our Affordable Passivhaus research.
Bromford are a forward thinking provider and have a strong social agenda, helping both staff and their tenants “to be the very best they can be”. Something that stands out with their approach is their ethos surrounding online communications which fits neatly with our own expertise in this area. We’ve created dedicated project websites for for community consultation and this has proved an effective way to share information and gather feedback from residents. Online project management tools are standard practice for us too.
Much like Bromford’s policy to be open and transparent about how they share information, we hope to share as much as possible about our work on the framework here on the blog. Keep an eye out for updates.
