MLM deliver nearly a hundred services in-house across four key sectors of Buildings, Infrastructure, Environment and Compliance.
MLM make a positive contribution to projects from inception through to completion.
Our Buildings expertise covers the full project journey, specialising in both traditional and modern methods of design and construction.
We believe that successful buildings design and delivery relies upon a proactive, flexible approach to the partnership between the client, design team and contractor.
We recognise the importance of aesthetics and function, and we test sustainable solutions against a building’s operating and occupancy strategy. Our multidisciplinary background means that we have a high level of appreciation for other disciplines in this process. ‘Joined up thinking’ puts us in a unique position to increase value.
The infrastructure supporting our communities and cities are essential networks; they are our lifelines to provide economic developments, support well-being and ensure the functioning of our surroundings. With the population of the world projected to reach heights of 9 billion by 2050, the necessity for sustainable, innovative and resilient infrastructure is becoming increasingly crucial.
At MLM, our infrastructure expertise extends from our traditional civil engineering base to innovative designs. Our infrastructure clients extend across both the public and private sectors including major asset owners, architects, developers, contractors, government agencies and local authorities.
Our Building Control, Assigned Certifier and Health & Safety teams provide a flexible approach which is both proactive and commercially aware. We offer expert advice on all associated acts, legislation and other regulatory, advisory and good practice guidelines affecting developments. Working across all sectors, our compliance teams apply a creative, problem solving approach, working alongside either traditional design procurement or with design and build teams. We make a significant difference to spatial planning through creative advice on building regulations, compliance requirements and performance of the development. We seek involvement at the earliest stages to ensure compliance issues are understood and effectively risk managed to protect the client’s interests and deliver a cost-effective project.
Whatever the project, our specialists can offer advice and support on managing regulatory and planning risk and driving a cost-effective, efficient and timely delivery.
We understand that simple, practical interventions at the design and planning stage of a project will positively shape development proposals, increasing the probability of regulatory consent, embedding sustainability and delivering value.
Our specialists offer tailored advice at all project stages including feasibility, site acquisition and planning stages, providing support to help unlock development potential.
From strategic site promotions to design briefs, applications, construction and appeals, our ability to integrate delivery across technical disciplines can make a valuable contribution when considering site potential and development constraints, whether they be commercial, legal, environmental, geographical, geotechnical, financial or political.
