Team Better Block joins WGI’s Mobility, Complete Streets, and Urban Design Team
We are proud to announce that Andrew Howard and his Dallas, Texas-based Team Better Block joined forces with WGI!
Founded in 2010, Team Better Block gained national recognition for performing pop-up pedestrian-scale projects that earned awards and recognition for their placemaking and community revitalization efforts. Over 200 cities around the world have used Team Better Block’s “design recipes” to rapidly illustrate and execute the conversion of auto-dominated urban areas into vibrant community and business spaces.
Team Better Block will retain its branding in the marketplace as Team Better Block, powered by WGI. Andrew will continue leading the Team Better Block practice at WGI, as our Director of Placemaking.
The combination of WGI and Team Better Block expands WGI into multiple facets with a wide range of services and markets – beyond the initially obvious. As Team Better Block integrates into WGI, its unique approach will pop up in civil engineering, transportation planning, land planning, landscape architecture, structural engineering, and many other disciplinary services.
For Andrew Howard’s part, the excitement is unmistakable. “You have seen what a small Team Better Block can accomplish. Now, as part of a multidisciplinary firm of 600+ associates, you may want to hold onto your handlebars! WGI already feels like home, as they embrace developing community informed projects and focus on healing infrastructure in locations with equality, sustainability, and more fun! TBB powered by WGI means more planners, engineers, designers, and policy experts on one team that share your idea of building a Better Block.”
Welcome to the team, Andrew!
