What we do

Whether as external consultants or in-house technicians, or from the pre-construction process right through to final project delivery; we can do it all. Our team can provide initial concept planning, detailed designs, technical working drawings, as well as work alongside other professionals on residential, commercial and industrial projects.


Residential projects are a speciality of ours. From the outset to the end, MPSL will provide your development with Architectural Services of the highest level. We are skilled in master planning large sites for Outline Planning Permissions or Development Statements and undertaking sketch schemes for financial appraisals; then carrying them forward for full or reserved matters planning consent. Whether a unique mansion, complete housing ranges or high-rise apartments, we provide full working drawings with Autocad & Revit software.


We have design experiences across a multitude of industries, including food, retail, office space and leisure. Flexibility and space planning are key with commercial projects as schemes are often intended for mixed uses. To maximise potential, we will complete sketch appraisals for all of the development’s intended uses, then undertake contextual appraisals and prepare detailed planning drawings and site layouts for submission. Working drawings can be provided for both tendering and construction purposes, utilising Autocad and Revit software.


MPSL will design to suit a variety of uses. From smaller scale workshops, including mezzanine office spaces, to large-scale warehouse and distribution buildings, we can do it all. Also, we Masterplan industrial and commercial spaces within larger mixed use developments, ensuring to identify capacities early on. Our designs are based on steel frame grid systems, providing cost effective building processes, plus our technical team produce working drawings for both construction and tendering purposes through Autocad and Revit software.

In good company

To be the best of the best, we work with the best of the best. Over the years we have established strong long-term relationships with clients across the various sectors, working on a vast array of developments on both a national and individual basis and building a reputation for delivering on time and on budget.

Our social values

At MPSL, social value is held at the forefront of our business, not only to the benefit of our communities, but also in a bid to do, and see things differently, contributing to the lasting success and well-being of every demographic. As designers, our primary role is to create both successful buildings, and places, which ultimately support and compliment the communities they serve. In order to ensure the long term success of a project, social value must be embedded into the heart of the design.


We are extremely passionate about providing equal opportunities for all people, irrespective of their individual background, orientation, culture or creed. We work closely with local education and training providers, offering support and work experience opportunities, having provided a number of successful apprenticeship placements to date.


We strongly believe that it is our obligation (and the obligation of every business) to minimising the impact of daily activities on the environment as much as possible, so as to reduce the overall carbon footprint imposed. As a company, we utilise resources efficiently, in order to reduce waste, and limit our daily environmental impact.


The happiness and wellbeing of those impacted by the places and spaces we create, is of pivotal importance to us. This works to guide, and influence some of the key design decisions we make, ensuring that we are able to provide an ever improving environmental impact on the communities which our projects serve.

Why we do what we do

We are passionate about designing for the future, turning visions into reality and ensuring every development meets its creative potential with strength, beauty and integrity. We are also adept at understanding the complexities of the planning process and interpreting client requirements, while maintaining a commitment to maximising sustainability.

    We have worked with MPSL for the last two years and have found them to be extremely professional, practical and responsive. MPSL have been instrumental in the delivery of a recent mixed-tenure project to deliver 109 new homes, on an extremely complex site in Manchester.

We have very much valued their service and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.

    MPSL are a very capable design and planning service based in Trafford Park, South Manchester. The practice led by Dave Golden offers landowners, RP, developers and house builders a hands on service from initial concept design through to a detailed planning approval. I have used MPSL for years and have found that they are able to offer a unique service, and able to add the value to each parcel of land I have needed their design services for. At MPSL the service is always friendly, and they will always go the extra mile. On numerous occasions, when a scheme needs to be changed at short notice, then a member of the team will attend to the changes without delay. This added value is exactly what house builders and developers need, and as the Team at MPSL understand exactly what developers want, then they always maximise the sites development potential, while balancing the other planning stakeholder requirements.
