Dav Bansal

Dav is driven by a passion for helping regional towns and cities to meet their potential and to ensure they play their pivotal role in the UK, promoting healthy environments, active movement, and quality of place. His integrity of exploring ideas to make places for landscaping and buildings is considered both at macro and micro scales.

Dav has been with the practice since 1999 and became a Partner in 2015. He leads the Birmingham studio and oversees the design of major urban regeneration projects including delivery of Birmingham’s Paradise development in the city’s civic heart, along with the Curzon/HS2 and Martineau Galleries masterplans in the east. He has significant experience in residential and commercial sectors including award-winning schemes such as Manchester’s One St Peter’s Square, 125 Deansgate and Birmingham's Two Chamberlain Square and Port Loop.

He regularly sits on awards panels, including the RIBA National and International Awards, and as a judge for the Housing Design Awards and was previously a judge for the BCO Midlands and East Anglia region.

Dav regularly speaks and writes on topics that are important to him. He recently took part in a debate on the ‘City without Cars’ for New London Architecture and writes a regular column for Building Design from a regional design perspective.

In his voluntary capacity, Dav is on the Board of Directors for B:Music, is an advocate for the NSPCC Charity, Vice-Chair of Open City and a member of the WM Town Centre Task Force.
