Design Research Unit

The Design Research Unit has shaped the nature of our physical surroundings and design culture for over six decades. Since 2004 it has been part of the Scott Brownrigg group. It raises the standard of the Design Delivery Unit’s work with leading-edge thinking, research and collaboration.

Building from the original ethos of the DRU. Today “Research – discovery – intelligence – knowledge – disseminate,” has become ‘Imagination – shifting boundaries – recognition – appropriateness – conversation/communication – return on investment.’”

Building on this extraordinary legacy, the DRU is our knowledge base. A think tank, a place to break rules and drive change across the industry – the Design Research Unit informs all levels of our process. From research into innovative materials and construction through to design output, industry collaborations and standards.
