Southwark Council: Design Quality Review

Client: LB Southwark

What we did

LB Southwark has a sound track record of delivering new homes on its own land. It is now ramping up its direct delivery of new homes, and it wants to be clear that it has a robust culture and processes in place to achieve good design. Municipal is working with the council officers to understand their existing systems and to propose changes to processes such as procurement and resourcing. We held a design event attracting many officers from across the council, reviewed existing new developments, researched other councils’ processes and documents, and wrote a summary report with recommendations.
