Excellent design at the 'beating heart' of all new UK infrastructure

Stirling Prize winning architect and National Infrastructure Commissioner has just announced a new Design Group which will champion design excellence in all new national infrastructure.

Professor Sadie Morgan, who delivered the opening speech to our November Future Cities Forum, gave an overview of where design was influencing our infrastructure projects in the UK and how this would influence housing and community development.

In her new announcement, Sadie said that the new design group was a 'pivotal moment' for the future of UK infrastructure and that members from transport, engineering, landscape and architecture, would lobby to ensure that design is considered at the outset of every major project, and at every stage of delivery to make the most of our infrastructure without increasing costs.
