Thrive specialises in environmental wellbeing. We’ve led the field in this now-popular arena for many years, using scientific research and bespoke measurement techniques to help people and organisations live and work in ways more beneficial to their health.

Our remit is multi-faceted and multi-disciplinary, covering ergonomics, interiors, installations, art, landscaping, building design, architecture, and more. In fact, we address any physical aspect that can have a positive impact on brain, body and behaviour.


We have long been recognised for pioneering advances in energy efficient design. We deliver high-performance buildings that achieve measurable efficiency in materials and energy over their lifetime, meeting BREEAM, Global Real Estate Sustainability (GRESB) and Energy Performance Certification (EPC) benchmarks.

Millennium Sainsbury’s at Greenwich received the first BREEAM Excellent Award and Blue Planet Chatterley Valley was awarded the world’s first BREEAM Outstanding Design Award.

We also work to enhance the landscape environment around our buildings to create a positive environmental impact.


Designing and delivering places that promote individual health and wellbeing is a fundamental cornerstone of our values.

Wellbeing is a philosophy that we consciously integrate into our work and environment for colleagues and clients, whether we’re using tried and tested ‘Activity Based Work’ principles to design a workplace that promotes creativity and collaboration while delivering measurable improvements in productivity, or encouraging flexible working practices among our own people.

Environmental Innovation

We are always forward thinking, keeping a step ahead, and in addition to embracing environmental sustainability we have recently added WELL™ Certification to the targets we set for the design, construction and maintenance of our buildings.

WELL™ Building Standard – administered by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI) – is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of buildings that impact the health and well-being of people who use them. Occupier wellness is measured in the seven categories of air, water, nutrition, light, fitness, comfort and mind.

We are designing and delivering a new build project in the UK that is the world’s first pilot project for WELL™ Industrial Buildings accreditation.
