The Practice

Core - the central, innermost, or most essential part of anything


Core Associates is a dynamic practice of architects which has developed through both direct project involvement and advisory work in the public and private sectors.


In all our commissions we have endeavour to add value to both the design process and end product by engaging with our clients as early in the project life cycle as possible. A key driver for us is to be able to understand our clients’ real needs and constraints and support development of more holistic, affordable and deliverable strategies to ensure that each project is successful for all involved. 


Much of the work that we do is at a strategic level and often involving masterplanning of large and complex sites for both private and public sector clients.


The sectors which we are currently most active in are Health, Regeneration, Hospitality and Residential.  Other project strengths of the team include working in the Education, Retail, Commercial, Custodial and Defence sectors. This experience has been gained across the UK and overseas over nearly thirty years.


We have built a core team of design, management and property professionals with the requisite skills and experience to offer our clients the best advice and service that we can and for all aspects of property development and asset management.


We also collaborate with a wide range of other organisations in much of the work we are involved in and this allows us to offer a blended range of value added services.
