Urbanist Joe has joined the business from a private planning consultancy in the Midlands.

He explained: “I wanted to work for a company with a genuine passion for the built environment, providing exceptional design and making better places. I firmly believe as Urbanists, we can shape the future of our cities and the spaces we interact with in a fundamentally positive way.

“The climate change crisis is threatening the world’s future, and I hope we can play our part in addressing this. I look forward to being a part of Urbana’s future growth, and I’m excited about our 2022 plans.”

Based in the Sheffield office, Joe will support the rest of the team in delivering development proposals that improve cities and towns.

He will also be looking into research projects around people’s relationship with the built environment, particularly concerning mental health and personal development.

Managing Director, Adam Murray, added: “We have ambitious growth plans for 2022, and we’re thrilled that Joe will be joining us on our journey.”
