"We engaged WaND (led by Ian Dennison) early in the procurement of a major public sector tender to provide us with an advisory service both in terms of the qualitative response to the tender and generally on public sector procurement by that particular body – this included pre-qualification and tender proposal. As a business, we are exceptionally happy with the service that WaND provided and, whilst the tender was unsuccessful for reasons out of their control, the marking of the qualitative sections placed us as the highest tenderer by a significant margin. WaND provided a structured approach in understanding the exam question and in how to respond. The structure provided wasn’t our typical approach and, at times, put us outside of our comfort zone but, based on the scoring received, the advice was absolutely correct for this tender. Whilst their work focused on the best representation of our business to ultimately maximise marks it also acknowledged the reviewers, both at a micro (the assumed scorer) and macro level (the overarching public sector body). Ian and his team provided the right level of challenge to our team to draw out strengths and position our weaker areas in the best possible light. We will certainly be using WaND again for our public sector tenders – thank you to Ian and all the team at WaND."
William Lunn – Sir Robert McAlpine
"Throughout the process WaND were extremely professional and supportive. They offered their expertise and provided exactly what we needed, everything we asked for and more. In the past we have worked with other companies who have only provided us with a shadow of the service that WaND have given us. I have no hesitation in recommending their services and given the opportunity we will definitely be using them again. 100% happy"
Jim Smyth – Graham Construction
"...we have found WaND highly responsive in pressurised time constrained situations, which almost certainly will arise with clients during bid processes. We would have no hesitation in recommending WaND to others and believe the most important pointer is upfront briefing discussions around the particular client requirements so as to harness the value input of WaND in the most effective manner"
Aldous Hodgkinson – Stanhope PLC
"WaND provided excellent support leading to our success in getting on two very significant MOD frameworks. A major achievement as our Division had never previously worked in the Defence Sector"

HLM is a leading design practice headquartered in the UK, offering a rare combination of design skills including Architecture, Landscape and Urban Design, Interior Design, Environmental Design and Masterplanning from ten offices in London, Sheffield, Glasgow, Belfast, Manchester, Cardiff, Plymouth, Johannesburg South Africa, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
We are a creative organisation, but one with its feet firmly on the ground. We combine flair, imagination and passion with an informed approach to the critical financial, operational and quality aspects of our projects. We champion the importance of design quality, sustainability and innovation, and our projects are driven by all of these, in pursuit of overall design excellence, but within a core framework or financial affordability.
True design excellence is not short-term. We believe in sustainability and regeneration. We have developed our own IT based design tool-kit specifically to test every conceivable environmental condition to rigorously examine the environmental quality, attributes and opportunity of any given site or location. We have established HLM Environment, to ensure that for all clients, on all projects and in our day-to-day operations, we consider the world around us.
Client satisfaction is critical to our mission. Our design process is centred on our clients’ vision and operational needs, and we build close working relationships to ensure the highest levels of service and design solutions to exceed expectation. That dedication to true partnership, our ability to pinpoint and address project priorities and deliver maximum value on each project, are the reasons we enjoy such a high level of repeat work.
We have developed a unique blend of commercial, teaching and design expertise and gained an unrivalled range of experience across a broad range of sectors including education, healthcare, justice, defence, civic, commercial and residential. We are also at the forefront of PPP and PFI projects in the UK and across the world.
