A+U framework appointment!
In collaboration with our friends Jas Bhalla Architects, we are incredibly excited to announce that AR Urbanism has been awarded 3 places on the Mayor of London's new A+U framework.
In total, 65 consultants have been selected across 10 lots; we are one of only a handful of practices to have made it on to 3 lots:
- Lot 01 - Spatial Policy, Urban Strategies and Research
- Lot 03 - High Street & Town Centre Recovery and Transformation
- Lot 07 - Small Sites Housing
Our selection for these 3 very different lots is recognition of our team’s broad interdisciplinary experience, ranging from spatial strategies and masterplans, to town centre renewal projects, and retrofit and adaptive reuse of buildings.
