The Urbanists relocation attracts new director
Town planning and design practice The Urbanists has appointed a director and relocated to Cardiff city centre offices.
Gareth Howell joins the practice from planning and design consultancy Barton Willmore.
The practice said the appointment would enhance its design expertise and add "substantial experience" of residential design and development.
His appointment comes as The Urbanists moves from Links Business Park in St Mellons to Morgan Arcade in the city centre. The new studio space is being developed by property investment company Helical Bar.
Urbanists managing director Martin Sullivan said: "We're delighted that Gareth is joining us and our move to the city centre was a big factor in attracting him to work for us.
"We celebrate our tenth anniversary as a practice in 2015 and moving to the centre of Cardiff and adding Gareth's substantial design credentials gives us a strong basis for the future growth of our practice."
