Sustrans has been appointed to Transport for London's (TfL) second Architecture Design Urbanism Panel (ADUP2) framework.
The Architecture and Urbanism Panel is the Mayor of London and TFL’s pre-approved panel of built environment consultants.
The Panel’s job is (in its own words) ‘set up to advise London's public sector on how to deliver the best quality building and design work’. The panel is live now and is scheduled to run up until April 2022.
Following a detailed and rigorous vetting process, Sustrans has been appointed to the panel as part of a select, small number of experts. Over 1,100 submissions were received to the first qualifying stage, of which just 92 practices, including Sustrans, have been appointed across 14 categories.
The previous panel saw over 100 projects procured through it, with over £30m paid in fees, and 27 public sector organisations accessing the panel.
Matt Winfield, Director Sustrans London said:
“This is great news for Sustrans, we’re proud to have been recognised by the Greater London Authority and TfL for our expertise and the value we offer. We’ve been helping partners deliver healthier streets through our innovative and highly effective collaborative design approach for over 20 years.
"All London boroughs and many other organisations can now save time and money by using the ADUP2 framework to appoint Sustrans. This prestigious seal of approval makes it even easier to work with us to create a better built environment for people to enjoy.”
TfL’s Urban Design team and the Mayor of London’s Regeneration team are responsible for providing advice and are the point of contact for anyone interested in using the panel.
