Founded in January 2008, we are an independent limited company. Based in Brockenhurst in the heart of the beautiful New Forest National Park and complimented with a London based team.
We are an established team of design consultants retaining all the excitement and enthusiasm of youth, combined with maturity and years of industry experience. We have impressive project credentials and an admirable reputation for innovate design and creativity, delivered with pragmatism and a demonstrated ability to implement projects to full design specifications.
Our core team of senior staff are passionate design experts with years of consultancy experience and management practise. We ensure that each of our consultancy disciplines has a specialist team leader and each design project a dedicated project manager. We value good communications, smooth running programs and commit to deliver on what we promise.
We take equality very seriously, and always design inclusively. In fact, we think we are one of the few urban realm consultancies that employ access consultants on virtually every project.
JBC-London has a team of less able-bodied testers who put our design solutions through their paces at an early stage. They’ll rate a range of concepts for inclusivity, advise on first stage mock-ups and conduct rigorous on-site tests with working prototypes. They also provide training on designing inclusively for new fwdesign staff.
We also employ the services of other specialist consultants – all experts in their own fields – to add a specific perspective on topics like dementia or colour. We add these individuals to the team as and when we feel it will add value to a project. They usually input at an early conceptual stage, assist us in key design decisions and undertake usability tests on prototypes.
We believe this proactive and holistic approach to inclusivity sets fwdesign apart. Why not judge for yourself?
