07.03.18

Scott Brownrigg has enhanced its US offering by entering into a collaborative partnership with US based Crown Architecture and Consulting, to provide a turn-key service to developers predominantly in New York. 

 Within the Metro NYC market, land costs and complicated zoning are starting to restrict development opportunities and tighten profit margins. The partnership will provide developers with added value and a highly attractive offering. Crown are experts in maximising zoning approvals, understanding and applying building codes and expediting, all of which help to reduce development and construction delays and unnecessary costs. This knowledge, combined with the award-winning designs and collective expertise of the 250-strong, top 100 global design practice Scott Brownrigg will help fast track the development and renovation cycle for developers. 

 Together Scott Brownrigg and Crown will be targeting specific Residential and Commercial Development, as well as Smart City Thinking for Industrial and Last Mile Hub projects, utilising innovative solutions including Scott Brownrigg’s advanced technology Smart Shed.

 Of the partnership Scott Brownrigg CEO, Darren Comber said: “This is an extremely positive partnership with Crown, one that is already bringing some significant opportunities and complements the work of Scott Brownrigg’s existing design studio in New York.”

 Anthony Milano, Principal at Crown Architecture and Consulting said: “All too often we are coming into well underway projects to fix incorrect zoning or misinterpretation of code, and at times finding development benefits that were left on the table, due to developers hiring a “design firm”.  Our partnership with Scott Brownrigg fosters an all-encompassing team that will maximize the value of our clients assets while giving them the pride associated with a Scott Brownrigg globally acclaimed design.”
