Quote "anyone with talent should be building"
What if all Barristers decided to give Counsel there would be no Judiciary.
City Architect, Jim Barrett
"The City Architect's Division provides a multi-faceted service in relation to the City Council's development, building and urban regeneration programmes. Design briefs are formulated and agreed with client departments, sketch designs prepared and refined in consultation with technical departments and with local communities. Schemes are developed in-house, progressed to contract stage and supervised to completion. Where in-house resources are not in position to meet expanding building programmes, outside consultants are engaged to assist with meeting targets.
Multi-disciplinary teams under the guidance of the Division promote Urban Renewal through major civic works such as the Refurbishment of City Hall and by facilitating conservation and private sector projects, with notable success in the transformation of the urban centre.
In addition to the traditional housing programme, area regeneration schemes and modernisation of the City Council's stock of flat accommodation are increasing areas of activity. Such schemes are planned and implemented in close co-operation with resident tenant associations and local community interests."
Hard to argue with that role.
