BDP (Building Design Partnership) is a unique collective of experts spanning the spectrum of the built environment which provides a special status and capability in the design world. BDP has the vision to be the world’s leading integrated architecture, engineering and design firm, delivering world-class solutions which enhance the communities they serve.


In March 2016, BDP combined forces with Japan’s leading engineering practice Nippon Koei to form an integrated design group of genuine international reach. BDP has over 900 staff in the UK and internationally. Sharing a philosophy which places an emphasis on design integration and community impact, the new group offers a unique combination of deep technical skills in engineering, architecture and the full range of design disciplines.


BDP's Urbanism team embraces these challenges and responsibilities with a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach, engaging with cities, communities, developers and other stakeholders to inform decision making and to shape and deliver the places we live in.
