The BDN Difference

Why we do what we do…

Our Ethos
Established in 1983, we are a creative studio of Architects, Structural & Civil Engineers, and Project Managers based in Sunderland & Ulverston, with a nationwide portfolio of work. 

Our difference is in our unparalleled approach. Through the meticulous delivery of all our projects to the highest standards, the planning and detail is truly evident every time; from concept to completion.

Ultimately, our ambition is to work collaboratively with our clients to deliver exceptional buildings that meet the brief, respond to place, and are sustainable. We always look to test the boundaries of design, innovation and technology and pride ourselves on our design quality, on any project we undertake.

We have a talented team of forward-thinking Architects, Engineers & Project Managers, who offer a multidisciplinary set of skills, with the dedicated approach of a small practice. 

BDN was established on the principal of interdisciplinary working. A one-team attitude is fundamental to our approach. Our in-house team work closely together, allowing greater communication and efficiency between workloads. This set-up means team members are working from a broader and more informed position. As a result, greater productivity saves time, and streamlines the design process. Whilst we offer our services nationally, we always remain loyal to our North-East roots.
