The National Infrastructure Commission has launched a campaign to recruit members for its new Design Group, inviting champions of infrastructure design to play an important role in ensuring this issue is placed at the heart of major projects.
The Group was formed following recommendations in the UK’s first-ever National Infrastructure Assessment, which highlighted the benefits of good design and how if embedded into the culture of planning and delivering projects can lead to better outcomes for communities and improve quality of life.
Sadie, was instrumental in setting up the Group and will be its Chair, said “Putting design at the heart of projects has countless benefits, helping new infrastructure to enhance and enrich the lives of the communities it serves.
That’s what our Group is there to ensure – that designers have a seat at the table at every step in a project’s lifecycle.
Whether it’s engineers, architects, designers or ecologists, we’re looking for people who are passionate about good design and have the commitment, energy and enthusiasm needed to be real champions for this cause across the world of infrastructure.”
