We continue to expand our London offering with a new office location above the Stables Market at Chalk Farm in Camden; with more room and improved facilities the office has seen a 300% growth in staffing and projects over the last 12months. The team are currently working with a number of London based clients such as LandSec, Bart’s Health NHS Trust and RAF Hendon.
Our Manchester office has entered its third year and continues to deliver projects of all types and sizes. Our northern based team has been advising on schemes ranging from small residential schemes, all the way up to the strategic masterplans.

It was a big change from the centre of Oxford, but mode’s Thames Valley team have embraced the new co-working offices at Spaces in Reading; having hosted clients, planners, architects and even ‘Constructing Excellence Berkshire ‘over the last year.
