BE Design Celebrates Five Years


BE Design, a multi award winning practice operating across the UK, Europe and internationally, celebrated its five year anniversary with an exclusive event in London, attended by staff, clients, contractors and suppliers, who had the chance to find out the secrets to its success.

“At BE Design we are passionate about our industry and have developed five ingredients which have been key to our success. We focus on our people, our clients, our values, our technological infrastructure and on working hard,” said Simon Powell, director at BE Design.

“It’s this simple approach that has helped us to develop a strong portfolio of work across our key sectors. Our clients tell us they value the in-house expertise we have across architectural, civil and structural disciplines. Because the BE Design family work in project and client centric teams in a single office, we can be more responsive to our clients’ needs. Our aim is always to be exceptional, exciting our clients so that they are delighted and inspired with our service,” he added.

The company’s portfolio features the Rushden Lakes retail development in Northamptonshire, the Olympic Park regeneration and the Bear Grylls Adventure theme park at NEC in Birmingham. Now, the practice plans to more than double the size of its team in three years and help more clients achieve their built environment aspirations.

“We’re proud to orchestrate projects on behalf of clients to help them achieve their goals. I want to thank everyone who has supported BE Design in reaching this important milestone, our people, our suppliers and our clients,” said Stephen Oakden, director at BE Design.

“Our transparent approach harnesses trust with clients and, as a result, we are now working with the same clients on new projects. It’s a very exciting time for the practice as we’re delivering more projects further afield in Germany, Spain and Italy, together with delivering more large-scale projects across the UK. We very much look forward to growing our family of experts in line with our portfolio of work,” he continued.

BE Design was founded five years and by three director that combined had an experience of more than 60 years and a passion to offer truly multidisciplinary expertise and design excellence within the built environment. In that time Anna Tsartsari, Simon Powell and Stephen Oakden have grown a team of 30 architects, civil and structural engineers delivering high-quality projects across key sectors.
