About

Experiences. Not environments.

Inspiring people, clients, collaborators and visitors takes an engaging user experience. Not just a good-looking space. Our mission is to realise the potential of people wherever they are.

Whether re-imagining a Grade II listed building or investigating how our clients can use space to win the war for talent, a successful project is the perfect balance of a great space, supported by seamless technology and experienced by an engaged, informed user. It’s the approach evidence shows us delivers our clients tangible results, and often unexpected leaps forward.

Through our work

There are many ways to approach the design and building process. We not only work with clients on the environmental performance of their buildings, we can integrate environmental, sustainability and wellbeing practices and policies specific to them. The opportunities are limitless and it’s our collective responsibility to be accountable for the environmental and social impacts of what we do.

csr section post

In the community

Our CSR team co-ordinate activities and liaise with the different charities we partner to identify what will help them. They then organise and rally MCM to contribute their time, goods or funds. We also give each member of staff one paid day off each year where they can support either their chosen charity or one of the MCM partnership charities.
