PLP Labs is built from a strong multi-disciplinary team of in-house experts and external consultants. Managed by a core group, the Labs are able to pull together teams with a wide range of varied expertise, both from external partners and from within the diverse PLP talent pool.

Labs teams bring together expertise from architecture, urbanism, health and wellbeing, digital development, cultural programming, workplace design, mobility, sustainability and far more. With more diverse voices around our table, we can create better cities for the future.
