Grant Associates expands presence in Singapore
Grant Associates is expanding its presence in Singapore with new offices and staff appointments as demand grows for services across South East Asia.
Two new members of staff have joined the landscape architect’s Singapore office, which has moved to larger premises at Tras Street in Tanjong Pagar – a historic district within the city’s Central Business District.
Zhang Yuan joins the team as Landscape Architect after a five-year stint at Ballistic Architecture Machine, an award-winning, multidisciplinary design studio based in Beijing and New York. Key projects Zhang Yuan has worked on include the Finite-Infinite Garden for Beijing Garden Expo and the Vanke Daxing Showroom, Beijing.
Tan Wei Lin, a recent graduate of Singapore Polytechnic, joins as Graduate Landscape Architect. A rising talent in the sector, Wei Lin won three gongs at the 2016 Singapore Institute of Landscape Architects (SILA) Student Design Awards for Outstanding Graphic Presentation (Gold), Planting Design (Gold) and Best Design Showcase (Silver).
Zhang Yuan and Wei Lin will add to the international expertise and creativity of the existing team, which is led by Mike Wood, Senior Associate, and Stefaan Lambreghts, Associate.
After consolidating its reputation in the region as lead masterplanner and designer of Singapore’s internationally acclaimed Gardens by the Bay, Grant Associates has gone on to win a range of high profile contracts in Singapore, South East Asia and Australia.
Projects currently underway include Funan Mall and mixed-use development Paya Lebar Quarter in Singapore, and Barangaroo in Sydney. Recently completed projects include Capitol Development in Singapore and Afiniti in Medini, Malaysia.
Mike Wood, Senior Associate at Grant Associates, comments:
“Zhang Yuan and Wei Lin are both highly talented creatives and welcome additions to our team in Singapore. It is through appointments like these that we intend to develop our team, and build on our portfolio in the region.
“Our investment in new talent and new premises is also a demonstration of our commitment to being part of Singapore’s journey towards becoming a ‘City in a Garden’, and our aim to influence the development of environmentally sensitive schemes across South East Asia and beyond.
“On a practical note, our new home at Tras Street gives us room to accommodate our ongoing growth. The attractive, characterful space arranged over three floors will serve to help us attract, and retain, the talent that is so vital to our success.”
Grant Associates appointed to new creative sector taskforce
28 Nov 2013 – Grant Associates joins UK Trade and Industry creative taskforce set to boost trade by £500 million
Grant Associates, the UK landscape architecture firm based in Bath, has joined a drive to help the UK’s creative companies win high value contracts overseas to be launched by the government today.
UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) will support a taskforce of the UK’s top 100 creative sector small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to win £500 million worth of high value overseas contracts in the next three years. The initiative is part of a government plan to get 100,000 more UK businesses exporting.
Companies on the taskforce include Grant Associates, the only landscape architecture firm represented, Zaha Hadid Architects, The British Museum, Heatherwick Studio, priestmangoode, AKQA, FutureBrand, Mother, ES Global, factorydesign, Populous and the V&A. They span the transport, healthcare, retail, cultural developments and global sports sectors.
Andrew Grant, director, Grant Associates, said:
“It is an honour to be included and participate in the creative sector taskforce. We look forward with great anticipation to working with the UK Trade and Investment and the other creative companies in promoting and creating an imaginative and ecologically enlightened future with British creative companies at the forefront.”
Business Secretary, Vince Cable said:
“The growing appetite for British design offers many opportunities for innovative firms of all sizes to boost their overseas trade and attract new investment. Collectively the creative industries already generate more than £36 billion a year for the UK economy – £70,000 every minute – and employ 1.5 million people.
“From airport interiors to ground-breaking medical devices and design exhibitions, the creative industries account for around £1 in every £10 of the UK’s exports and are crucial to building a stronger economy. With new support from UK Trade & Investment, we want to help creative SMEs access more high value supply chain opportunities across the globe.”
Each company in the taskforce will have its own international expansion plan and participate in a minimum of two overseas visits each year to target high value projects.
They will also receive training, support and networking opportunities directly related to these high value opportunities from UKTI and work with International Trade Advisers to identify the projects they are most qualified to bid for.
Until recently the market for UK creativity was limited largely to Western Europe but as new markets mature and global trading channels widen, the demand for British creative expertise is escalating.
The interest, particularly from emerging markets in Asia and the Middle East and countries like Russia and Brazil, is based on Britain’s reputation as a leader in creative industries.
