We are a highly inclusive practice with all staff being involved in the direction of the company through an annual open-forum review. We operate weekly design reviews to ensure that we are always challenging ourselves and delivering exceptional design.
HUT is a member of the RIBA Chartered Practice scheme. As part of this we work to a Quality Management System (QMS) which establishes a clear design leadership structure for each project.
HUT’s approach to each design brief is cyclical – a high level of cross-practice communication means that learnings from past projects are always fed into the next. Each new project commences with a rigorous briefing exercise. We ask questions and clarify assumptions, and only move onto design stages with accord. We enjoy interrogating multiple possibilities and commit to revisiting the brief at each work stage to ensure key outcomes.
We have developed an extensive professional development framework to ensure we continue to grow as individuals and as a collective. We have 50% male to female representation across the practice and a committed EDI policy.
HUT run our organisation with clear direction on the benefits of a responsible approach to the environment and its resources.
We promote environmental strategies and make specifications with high energy efficiency and recyclable potential to maximize the life-span of our buildings. We design adaptable spaces that are flexible for a variety of future uses. We are signatories of Architect’s Declare and are developing in-house strategies to align with RIBA’s 2030 Climate Challenge
