We run events for our subscribing members that include training workshops, debates, site visits and networking sessions.
Our London Programme focuses on how urban design, planning, housing, landscape, public realm, streets and transport issues are dealt with in the capital.
Our National Programme for built environment officers and councillors across England covers planning, housing, public realm, streets and transport topics.
Building Homes Programme
Our Building Homes Programme provides an opportunity for those working in, or with, home-building local authorities and housing associations, to share ideas, experiences and learn about best practice.
We can offer practical events to clarify the processes behind creating and implementing successful design codes - critical for creating good urban environments.
Get in touch if your local authority is looking for bespoke training on the government’s new approach to design to see what we can do for you.
Running a major training programme for over 15 years has provided us with a wide network of expert trainers who we can call on for bespoke sessions when needed.
If you have particular training needs, such as involving specific communities, designing tree pits for street trees, designing safe streets or increasing your housing supply, please get in touch to talk through your requirements.
We work in one of the most diverse and architecturally rich cities in the world and provide guided study tours around this wonderful city. We can create, with you, interesting and inspiring itineraries that combine site visits with seminars and workshops.
Please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
Past Study Tours
South Bank guided tour
A group of senior city planners and urban designers from the National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) in Delhi (India) visited London in September 2018 to gain a better understanding of how the city approaches regeneration in areas of historical importance.
“Thank you for the Southbank Walk. It was a very informative tour that provided us a good insight of the regeneration work undertaken in London and its planning processes”
Central London guided tour
A group of students and professors from HfG University of Art and Design in Offenbach (Germany) visited London in October 2018. As part of the tour we presented an introduction to urban design principles before taking to the streets on Santander cycles (public bicycle hire scheme in London) to look at the Cycle Superhighways and Quietways.
“Thank you for the possibility to visit your great office last week. We were so impressed by your presentation and your tour by bike in London and of course our discussion about it!”
