The Architecture and Urbanism Panel is a pre-approved panel of built environment consultants. Consultants on the panel were whittled down from more than 225 shortlisted applicants through a design challenge to demonstrate their expertise. The panel is available for EU-compliant pre-qualification by virtually all public bodies, including Network Rail, boroughs & local authorities outside London and housing associations.
The GLA set up the Architecture and Urbanism Panel with Transport for London to advise London's public sector on how to deliver the best quality building and design work. The Panel’s job is to support the Mayor's regeneration programmes and priorities, as well as other public sector-funded projects in London and beyond.
