about us

A creative multidisciplinary consultancy of architects, planners and urbanists

Spawforths are an award-winning and innovative practice based in Wakefield.  We have an excellent reputation for creating inspirational and deliverable development projects for both private and public sector clients throughout the north of England and the Midlands.

Over the last 27 years, Spawforths have developed an in-house multidisciplinary team of planners and designers delivering a core set of seven key services.

Planning

At the heart of our business is the largest independent planning consultancy in the north employing a large team of Chartered Town planners with expertise in Local Plans, Development Control, Appeals and Environmental Assessments.

Masterplanning

Sitting alongside our planners is a dedicated masterplanning team, all of which have post graduate degrees in urban design and most holding dual qualifications in architecture or landscape architecture.

Architecture

Employing only Charted Architects with membership of both ARB and the RIBA, our architects regularly ensure that our outline planning proposals are deliverable as well as delivering high quality and innovative one-off buildings.

Landscape Architecture

Our landscape architecture team prepare Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments for our Environmental Assessments as well as design and deliver high quality public realm schemes for many of our architectural projects.

Consultation

We have a dedicated in-house team of community consultation professionals who are familiar with the challenges and opportunities associated with trying to deliver large scale development projects within or adjacent to established communities.

Project Management

For large and/or complex projects, we often provide a full or partial project management service to our clients, assisting with the appointment and management of other consultants and managing the project programme and deliverables.
