We are P-IE (Planit Intelligent Environments), a design practice with a passion for outside spaces and the part they play in our communities. For over 15 years we’ve been turning spaces between buildings into places for people to explore in, engage with and most importantly, enjoy.
From the UK’s largest regeneration projects to bespoke single site commissions, our team of Landscape Architects, Urban Designers, Digital Modelers, 3D Animators and Graphic Designers are committed to design quality in the built environment. Whatever the scale, whatever the challenge.
Our ambition in every project is to find the true personality of a space and bring it to life as best we can. That means looking beyond the obvious to question, challenge and seek out new perspectives. At the same time, it means paying close attention to commercial realities; while every design we create is original and inspiring, it is always delivered with maximum cost efficiency and strict adherence to project timelines.
The P-IE team numbers more than 35 dedicated professionals, each making their own contribution to our success across two studios in London and Manchester. These studios are led by our two founding Directors - Pete Swift and Ed Lister - directly supported by three Partners. As an organisation, we encourage our staff to take the initiative and to enjoy the rewards of successful leadership. In this way, we foster a sense of ownership that benefits our teams, our clients and our business through its direct impact on the quality of work we deliver.
We are currently working on projects at Airport City in Manchester, Liverpool Waters, and with MCFC in East Manchester. We are also active on several southern projects, in Battersea, East London and the Discovery Park Enterprise Zone in Kent. We were recently appointed by the Co-operative Estates to design and oversee the delivery of the final two phases of the NOMA estate in Manchester city centre.
