“We want to build a reputation that whilst acknowledging the design brief allows us to offer credible VE options thus becoming a trusted partner for our customers”
Kev Sharratt – Managing Director

“Our primary goal is to develop a customer centric approach building long term relationships and partnerships”
Mark McGinn – Director

Kev and Duncan have over 40 years of design, manufacture and installation experience working in this industry and came together with Mark last year because they believed they could offer something different.

We decided in 2020 that it was time to set up our own company to allow us to work more creatively, collaboratively and cost-effectively to help our clients achieve amazing outside spaces.

“After 30 years of working for others I wanted to start a business making amazing, functional furniture and structures. I believe that we can do it – offering a quality, knowledgeable, experienced and cost-effective service”
Duncan Wright – Technical Director

What makes us different?

When you choose to work with Urban Concepts, you don’t have to deal with salespeople, our team are all expert engineers. That means from the start you work with people who will get to grips with your project quickly and work with you to find the best solution.

Urban Concepts – Regeneration Projects

Currently, we are working on a number of regeneration projects with landscape architects, investment groups, local councils and construction companies. These involve diverse outdoor spaces such as the regeneration of Starley Gardens at Coventry University, Upton Gardens – the old West Ham FC ground, rooftop gardens at Empress Works in London and Dartford town-centre regeneration.

“We have been really pleased with the manufactured quality, and the aesthetics of the seating looks fabulous and really enhances the new Brewery Square area!”

Keith Longley – Program Manager at Dartford Town Centre regeneration

“Urban Concepts did a great job in both manufacture and installation!”

Russell Groves, Project Manager at HG Construction

“Urban Concepts surveyed, manufactured and installed a tricky project to a high standard. The whole process was seamless and myself and the client were very pleased with the end result”

Kevin Hedgecock, Project Manager at JB Riney & Co Ltd

The future for Urban Concepts?

Our vision for the next year is to consolidate and expand our business largely within our existing customer base. As we have mentioned previously, we want to ensure that we can service our existing base before we expand exponentially. We want a business that is manageable and sustainable.

Thank you to all our customers, who have chosen to work with us. We look forward to developing long term relationships and partnerships and here’s to the next year, and the year after, and…..!!!
