CityLab’s primary goal is to improve the quality of each project we work on, by supporting our clients to get the most from design. We collaborate with both public and private sector, connecting clients with design professionals.
To achieve this goal we deploy specialised design expertise, rigorous procurement practices and transparent project management, while supporting and promoting the design industry through fair and equitable processes.
An interface to the design industry, CityLab’s experienced team works to ensure projects get the best out of the procurement process.
