Design Office

4c Design are our sister office based in Glasgow, they have a design driven approach to innovation and have a very simple and clear vision – to transform ideas and concepts using our design processinnovative thinking and engineering skills.

Their creativity, original thinking and sometimes unconventional approach allows 4c as an entity to bridge the gap between design style and pure engineering. Consultation and collaboration is key to this design process and we involve our clients and their customers throughout, to create the best product for the market.
