About Ethos Urban

We believe bringing collective intelligence to complex decisions delivers a better urban experience. Our towns and cities are always changing and we know this creates choices that can make a difference to the quality of urban life.

We believe we can always improve the urban life experience by creating engaging places that connect us to where we need to go, meet our changing needs and create opportunities for everyone to thrive.

For over 25 years our people have worked in partnership with the public and private sectors to provide them with the momentum to realise their ambitions for better places, communities and cities.


Why work with us

The business of creating a better urban experience is a complex one. It requires patience, diligence, intelligence and perhaps most importantly, a passion for making a difference to our experience of urban life.


What we do and the way that we do it is unique. We view each project as a complex puzzle that requires different perspectives and alternative angles to solve it. At Ethos Urban, no one individual ever has the answer. Its only when we bring people with different specialisations from different teams that we can see the full picture and then the way forward. We call it collective intelligence.


At Ethos Urban our people are constantly developing their skills, staying challenged, pivot in their careers and take their experience and expertise to places all over the world. The value we bring to our clients is intrinsically linked to the ongoing knowledge, varied experience and rich partnerships that we develop.


Clients choose us because we bring an elevated and multi-faceted perspective that helps us (and them) do the right thing by people and places not just for today, but for generations to come. At Ethos Urban we are committed to making a difference if you would like to join us on this journey, bring your expertise to the group and be part of creating better urban experiences.
