URBED (Urbanism, Environment and Design) does what our name suggests we specialise in urban design and sustainability in an urban context. We work across the UK from our base in Manchester, for public and private sector clients. Our background is in urban regeneration, something that remains close to our heart. However recent work has ranged from town centre strategies to outline planning applications for large commercial masterplans, from University estate strategies to urban design guidance. This work is united by our core values of urbanism, community, environmental sustainability and design. URBED (Urbanism, Environment and Design) is an employee-owned co-operative, we now have 10 staff and associates, comprising urban designers, planners, architects, an economist and a sustainability expert.
