“I have worked closely on several projects with PLACEmaking…”


Bristol Smart City Operations Centre

“The new Bristol Smart City Operations Centre opened in September 2017. The design work and quality of the end product was extremely high. All colleagues working in that area are really happy with the design and quality achieved. It is modern, slick and highly impressive.”

Temple Street

The integration of DWP into Temple Street – PLACEmaking were invaluable in their advice and drive to keep the project on time and in budget. They listen to what the client wants to achieve and pull out all stops to deliver it.”
The new Customer Service Point at Temple Street – before the design work began the team was able to discuss what barriers we had encountered in our current work spaces and what we would like to see in the future space. When we met for these briefings the team was very probing and really listened to the concerns we had. PLACEmaking’s solutions were excellent and incorporated adjustable space solutions, meaning that over two years into the redevelopment we have been able to adapt the space layout as our service delivery model has evolved in response to changing citizen needs and business demands.”
“Communication was timely, clear and explained at every stage of the process, the team was firm in discussions where required and this helped the project to run smoothly. The drawings were easy to interpret and we were walked through each element. I felt at all stages that they had a great understanding of the business requirements.”


“I think the fact we return again and again to PLACEmaking is testament to how delighted we are with what they achieve.”
