LDA Design continues to grow its masterplanning and urban design expertise with the appointment of Andy Dowding as a director.
Andy Dowding joins from Savills where he led their London urban design team, and he has over two decades’ experience of creating sustainable places that bring about positive change for communities. Andy has worked on major outline planning applications, town centre masterplans and design feasibility studies. He previously worked for Allies and Morrison, on projects including King’s Cross Central, Olympic Legacy and Hereford Old Market.
Andy joins an LDA team whose landscape-led approach to masterplanning has been recognised for responding to the big issues of our time, including net zero, nature recovery and social equity. LDA’s development and regeneration market continues to go from strength to strength, with a run of award-winning projects in the UK and overseas, including Better Queensway, Southend-on-Sea; Oktyabrysky Island in Kaliningrad; and UCL East.
Mark Williams, Head of Development and Regeneration at LDA Design, said “We are delighted to welcome Andy, and he brings a wealth of experience in masterplanning complex projects around the UK. Working closely with Tom Perry, LDA’s Cambridge studio lead, Andy will focus on further strengthening our offer and growing our business in the East of England, as well in London and across the UK.”
Andy Dowding commented: “I am thrilled to start an exciting new chapter with LDA Design, with a focus on delivering exceptional places for people, place and the environment”.
