Find out more about how a bespoke design review can help your project.


Studio UrbanArea LLP can undertake and support your project review actions for design / development briefs, planning applications, masterplans and regeneration strategies. Our scope of services include; SAP / RdSAP / SBEM, BREEAM / Code for Sustainable Homes assessment & review advice, housing standards compliance & HQI assessment, strategic sustainability appraisal, health impact assessment, design review support (training and preparation), financial viability assessment & review of development options.

We are keen to support urban regeneration, sustainable housing and community-led projects through the planning and design process. We can help with a bespoke Two-Hour Design Review as a rapid, desk-based critique of early designs for new development prior to the Planning process, and as a troubleshooting exercise for applications already underway. This has proven a fast way of identifying the key issues that will slow or prevent a planning consent, as well as highlighting those points which would support approval, together with concise recommendations for improvements.
