Organisation wants to expand its existing network of 250
Design Council Cabe is seeking experts who are passionate about the design quality of buildings, spaces and places.
These built environment experts (BEEs) would join an engaged network of professionals advocating and enabling good design in the built environment and championing the value of good place making.
Cabe says it recognises the importance and benefits of a diverse, multidisciplinary network: ‘The work we conduct and oversee is actively committed to promoting equality and inclusivity,’ it states. ‘To widen our existing network, we are seeking experts in architecture and the built environment, including heritage and conservation.’
The organisation would also like to recruit a diverse range of disciplines, including specialists in public health and community engagement, inclusivity, arts and culture, and economics and viability.
BEEs form an unparalleled professional network that provides design support for projects throughout England and internationally, it adds. ‘They are vital to support Cabe in offering independent advice on design in the built environment, ensuring that we create buildings, spaces and places that improve quality of life.’
Cabe is seeking to expand its BEE network to support new activities that include its City Model, Active by Design and Inclusive Environments projects.
Current BEEs include the Landscape Institute president Noel Farrer, and several RIBA Stirling prize-shortlisted and winning architects.
Those interested in joining then should apply via the Design Council website. The application process is now live and will close at 2pm on Friday 31 July.
