It offers a complete wraparound service, from conceptualisation and planning through to building, development, installation and ongoing maintenance for the life of the project. millimetre takes care of all policies, regs and necessary documentation and has a loyal network of trusted contractors, saving you the stress of coordinating multiple teams.

our values

millimetre strives to be an ethical, conscientious company with values that permeate every aspect of its organisation and project work.

pushing boundaries

Play and experimentation are at the heart of the practice, earning millimetre the reputation for realising ideas that may at first seem impossible. This is seen in work such as Double Space and Zotem.

honest & hardworking

millimetre believes in clear communication, transparent processes, fair pricing and best practice.

craft & quality

millimetre’s success stems from precise craftsmanship and intuitive problem-solving. Processes, niche skills and custom machinery are prized as highly as the finished project. Find out more about how millimetre works.

care & cooperation

millimetre is a close-knit team with four co-directors and a flat hierarchy. An ethos of equality means everyone pulls together, blending different strengths for the common good of the project in hand. Find out more about the team.
