The practice was founded in 1990 by Steve Burn. From small beginnings the practice grew to 10 designers, all responsible for their own clients/projects, and being overseen by Partners Steve and Carole.

In 2009, the recession hit hard and the practice was downsized to just Steve & Carole. Since this radical shake up we have seen the emphasis move from Licensed Design to Commercial/Retail and Sports Facilities, where we find the market is more stable.

Good design doesn’t mean BIG spend, to us it means “value for money’ and “clever use of the existing environment”

We understand each of our clients are individual and unique. We also recognise that our clients know how they want their premises to look, feel and work for them. We pride ourselves on really listening to what our clients are saying. Bringing client dreams and aspirations into practical reality is our passion and what we do best.
In over two decades we have designed and delivered countless quality commercial projects for clients from all sectors.
SBD has been almost entirely built through word of mouth referrals, which is often viewed as the primary driver of a strong, solid and dependable business.
Whatever your project SBD can provide everything you will need to create your stunning new project on time and on budget.


We pride ourselves on being a company who will listen and actually hear what you are saying.
Having successfully completed well over 200 projects in our 27 years of business we fully understand what our clients want and how to successfully deliver it.
We are professionals who will listen to your requirements with the goal of interpreting them into reality. We are not ‘yes people’.
We want to deliver a quality project whilst maximising the best value for money.
Our extensive experience has taught us that open communication, honesty and trust are the only way to achieve the best results for you/our clients.
Because we have strong relationship driven values, our policy is to be completely honest with you at all times and to express new, constructive opinions that may successfully augment your original thinking.
