Andrew is an engineer with a background in transportation, architectural engineering and urban design. He has more than 20 years’ experience in how we can plan for movement while at the same time creating great streets and enjoyable places.
He has been involved in many regeneration and masterplanning projects for villages, towns and cities in the UK and around the world. These include the £8bn Earls Court redevelopment which will stitch new London streets into the fractured fabric of this part of the city; and proposals for Chicago Lakeside, a community of 50,000 people south of the downtown, with new city-wide transit connections, a human-scale, slow speed, strategic highway through the site and two miles of lakeshore walking and bike trails.
Andrew has acted as an advisor to the government for The House of Commons Select Committees on Housing and Sustainable Communities. He is co-author of national and local design guidance, including The Urban Design Compendium, Designing Streets (for the Scottish Government), Manual for Streets 1 and 2 and The Abu Dhabi Urban Street Design Manual. He is a Design Review Panel Member for MADE, OPUN/Design East Midlands and Places Matter.
