“FCB Studios has been working with City & Country since 2011. We are currently engaged in the development of the former Kingston (Portsmouth) and Gloucester Prisons. Working on converting the former Bristol General Hospital was an important project for us - a complex and highly significant urban development on our practice’s doorstep. The prisons portfolio however have been great fun – presenting some extraordinary and unprecedented challenges in converting this type of building for high-end residential use. We think City & Country is special in that, as a developer, they have faith and integrity in working with important historic buildings; as clients they lay down the gauntlet and really challenge, push and cajole their architects and consultant teams to deliver high quality design”
"City & Country is a special client to work with on account of their enthusiasm and commitment to producing projects of genuine quality. Their particular expertise in working with existing buildings and crafting new interventions is impressive and, when combined with the energy they bring to the planning and delivery process, makes it a pleasure to be part of their team."
“Many contractors and developers talk of partnerships; City & Country clearly mean it, through the actions and communications of true partnering with its supply chain. Access to senior management if needed is straight forward and there is a mutual feeling that both companies can prosper together.”
“It is a pleasure to work with an organisation that has talented people who are passionate about their business, award winning, entrepreneurial in spirit and successful. For many years now, I have seen City & Country grow and develop as a group. I am confident that they are capable of achieving their future plans and their professionalism will help them to respond to the ever changing economic environment. I look forward with confidence to the years ahead.”
“City & Country's understanding of historic buildings is matched by the team's passion for and dedication to creating amazing homes out of interesting spaces. If you love technically challenging buildings, then the variety of work that City & Country can offer really is a dream come true”
