Create & Construct

Create & Construct is our unique high-end design and build service provided by Minale + Mann. It is our turn-key service from concept to completion.

In contrast to a standard Design and Build company, Minale + Mann is the first and only company in London to bring together in-house architects and interior designers, in parallel with in-house construction and project management, all under one roof. As a design studio, we employ in-house construction teams to facilitate and execute our design vision in a tightly controlled and streamlined way. Having in-house construction ensures our high design standards are executed on site. Projects are design-led, as opposed to build-led.

Our core design philosophy behind all commercial projects, is to achieve the right balance between productivity enhancement and efficient use of space, with creative solutions that encourage social interaction and stimulation.

Each project is allocated a Project Architect, who is the main point of contact for each project. The Project Architect manages and coordinates the project design team, including our in-house interior designers, structural and mechanical engineers, along with any other proprietary sub consultants. The Project Architect remains on the project throughout the construction stage, working alongside our site teams to ensure the studio’s high design standards are executed on site.

The architectural team are members of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), and are affiliates of the Architects Registration Board (ARB).

Create | Interior Design

Each project is allocated one of our in-house Interior Designers who work alongside our Project Architect. This ensures design continuity from our exterior concepts to the interior realm.

We believe that all elements of a commercial interiors development must work together, from context to the internal form, flow and the aesthetic. The needs of the inhabitants are key, along with a space that is as engaging as it is pragmatic. A well-considered spatial plan is crucial to creating an efficient workplace that is a pleasure to be. We look to create spaces that motivate workers through exciting and stimulating design, creating unique interior environments with beautifully composed materials.
