Social Infrastructure

Our social infrastructure work covers regeneration, healthcare, education and housing. It frequently involves the creation of novel structures for collaboration between the public and private sectors to deliver tangible and enduring social benefit.

We are recognised for our thought leadership delivered through our Tomorrow’s Cities programme which proposes solutions for future infrastructure and regeneration issues in an urban development context.
