Mr Richard Bellingham

Director Sustainable Cities & Eng Policy


Personal statement

My focus is on projects and teaching that can improve the quality of human life in cities across the world.  I enjoy delivering research and consultancy that delivers tangible positive and meaningful impact for citizens globally.

Particular areas of focus include development of programmes and strategies to make cities more sustainable and resilient; the creation of healthier urban environments; the use of data analytics to optimise the design of city systems and infrastructure; and the design of smarter cities.

A fast growing sector for us currently is international development - with a focus on the achievement of sustainable development goals through creation of holistic urban development strategies in developing world countries.

Our work is often taken forward in partnership with commercial, governmental, public and academic organisations - both in the UK and internationally.  We are always open for a discussion.
