2016 marked Node’s 5th Birthday and the year began with a bang. Our Knowledge Hub masterplan for Birmingham city centre made front page news and was launched by Birmingham City Council at the MIPIM international property conference, which we attended for the first time. Other key projects include a public realm strategy for Wolverhampton city centre, conservation area appraisals in Dudley and an innovative housing scheme in Shrewsbury. To celebrate our fifth birthday, the team went on a European trip to Copenhagen and Malmo to see some of the best contemporary developments in the world.
