In 2018, Manchester School of Architecture (MSA) launched the "LULU Landscape and Urbanism" Atelier in partnership with URBED. The aim of the Atelier is to provide architecture students with a greater understanding of masterplanning and urban design by bringing together the academic rigour of the MSA and the experience of URBED as practitioners. Each week a member of the URBED team joins the regular MSA tutors.

We're working with Carbon Co-op in this BEIS funded project to develop local supply chains for whole house retrofit across Greater Manchester. This is one of six pilot projects in England. It aims to develop localised capacity to deliver retrofit works and inform future government policy and approaches.
