CityCo takes on the whole city centre – a major challenge, but one is addresses with enthusiasm, creativity and professionalism. As a business, we benefit from being connected in terms of communication and knowledge about city initiatives, developments and challenges, and also receive practical help and support in resolved localised environmental issues. —Stephen Redfern, Director, BDP
