ep projects are a sustainably led multi-disciplinary development and design consultancy, benefiting from over 35-years experience across the residential, retail, hospitality, visitor-centre, commercial and mixed-use sectors.
We work closely with our valued clients and consultant team on a range of built-environment and green infrastructure projects across the UK. Our team have the experience, knowledge and reputation to guide our clients through the most complex and challenging projects.

Thoroughness at all stages of the design and development process are central to our thinking. This culminates in delivering what we promise via our inclusive, transparent whole-project team approach.
Optimising the asset value of our clients’ projects is informed by whole-life value and payback and is reviewed throughout all stages of the development journey. We assess alternative methods of construction and procurement to ensure we adopt not only the most sustainable but also the most time and cost-effective solution.
Using standards such as Passivhaus, AECB, Living Buildings and Building with Nature guidance, we design ultra-low energy buildings that are at the cutting edge of sustainability. We measure impact analysis through long-term POE (post occupancy evaluation) monitoring of energy use, sustainability, and all aspects of impact.

It is an innovative way of designing the places where we live, work, and learn. We need nature in a deep and fundamental fashion, but we have often designed our cities and suburbs in ways that both degrade the environment and alienate us from nature.
Biophilic design, an extension of biophilia, incorporates:
When laypeople hear the term “sustainable design,” they think of the way people affect the natural world around them. In contrast, biophilic design involves incorporating elements of nature into the built environment to bring benefits to people, such as an enhanced sense of wellbeing.
