The needs of the commercial office and industrial market provide many interesting challenges and project solutions. The Bush Consultancy has collaborated with many developer and occupier clients to develop sites and buildings for commercial office space, industrial and storage/distribution use. From early site appraisal through to the integration of the most complex process engineering requirements our experience has included new build schemes as well as complex refurbishment and retained façade projects on tight city centre sites and vacant plots.

Retail and Leisure

Working in the dynamic and customer focused environment of retail and leisure necessitates a requirement for the implementation of brand and market aware design alongside a fast track programme delivery. These factors affect the customer experience and an understanding of how the design and construction process can best be used to ensure delivery of successful and timely outcomes. We have extensive experience in these sectors and our projects include hotels, bars and restaurants, golf clubs and courses, sports halls, swimming pools and gymnasia as well as retail stores and factory outlet centres for national and international companies in the UK and overseas.


Working on defence and secure building projects has seen the development of extensive experience of the needs of clients and end-users within the defence estate as well as private sector service providers supporting the MOD and the nuclear industry. Understanding the requirements on projects ranging from residential accommodation to complex process buildings is a vital part of our service delivery to this sector. Our staff have been through vetting procedures to gain pass clearance for access to secure facilities where these projects are located and have attended relevant site specific safety and security briefings in support of these pass clearances.


As the need to explore the potential of regeneration and re-use in our cities becomes ever more relevant and necessary, The Bush Consultancy is collaborating with clients to develop sites and buildings for residential use. Projects have included open market and affordable housing as well as student and military accommodation. From vacant plots with new build dwellings, to the refurbishment of period properties, The Bush Consultancy has a diverse range of project experience to draw upon, together with the knowledge and experience required in consultation with bodies such as English Heritage, housing associations, local authority planning officers and private clients.


The extensive range of projects undertaken by The Bush Consultancy within the education sector demonstrates our commitment to working with governing bodies, headteachers and local authority management teams to deliver imaginative and well considered solutions. We work for primary and secondary schools, and further education colleges for both state and independent establishments. Our portfolio includes, new build, extension and master planned major refurbishment schemes. The process includes a detailed briefing process with end users and their estates team as well as broad based consultation with the wider constituent bodies of governors, teachers, parents and students.

Public Sector

Working through a number of frameworks as well as ad-hoc appointments, The Bush Consultancy has provided services to local authority clients on schemes from the smallest internal refurbishment to large scale multi agency facilities. We use our extensive experience of public sector procurement to ensure that cost effective design solutions are produced that meet programme expectations of the end-users and offer clear and transparent record of the consultations undertaken and agreements reached. Familiarity with these work processes allows space for the development of innovative solutions for the smallest and largest of projects.
