consultation and engagement

What is the point of cities built without the people’s wisdom?          Brecht

KMA has a high level of expertise and experience using diverse approaches to engage with communities in challenging projects. This includes community and stakeholder workshops, business breakfasts, design charrettes, study visits, exhibitions and awaydays.

The format depends on the nature and awareness level of the community. Great emphasis is placed on creative facilitation in the development of visions, strategies, action plans and partnership delivery structures. Tried and tested methodologies increase the chances of obstacles being overcome and plans being successfully implemented, often because community and professional capacity has been enhanced.

Several of our projects have won awards, with specific recognition given to the engagement dimension.
