Innovative planners and urbanists, Urbana has welcomed Joe Kirtley to its growing team across Sheffield and London.
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.”
