We design sustainable, inspiring buildings which deliver real world benefits for local communities


At McAdam we firmly believe that good buildings enhance people’s lives and help build lasting & sustainable communities. This is reflected across the full range of our award winning portfolio which place people’s welfare and environmental sustainability at the heart of all our design solutions. Our success is achieved through effective partnerships and meticulous planning in which we listen, discuss and explore opportunities before embarking on agreed design strategies. We do not resort to off the shelf solutions but rather we champion carefully crafted bespoke designs which respond to both the specific site challenges and unique client expectations.

Our proven methodologies can be tailored to all forms of modern procurement and are underpinned by a desire to deliver more than the brief mandates whilst successfully managing outcomes within agreed budget and programme targets. Whilst our primary focus is always firmly fixed on best value outcomes which deliver operational high performance we also aspire to higher architectural ideals which ensure our buildings uplift the spirit and leave a lasting impression on the communities who use them.
