TMS has extensive experience in advising clients and designers on elements of street furniture that are necessary such as mandatory traffic signs, and on elements that are not necessary such as redundant sign posts and advertising materials.
This area of advice and expertise can help reduce clutter and scheme costs within a street design project.
TMS completed a de-cluttering study across the campus at Lancaster University, that has resulted in the removal of over 70 items and unnecessary street furniture around the campus main roads.
Our style is one of taking a collaborative approach, fusing our expertise on the needs of road users (and, on what is not needed) with designers who are aiming to provide a quality and stimulating environment.
TMS lectures on Urban Design London courses, including the Streets Design Foundation course, which includes all aspects of de-cluttering and the over use of signs, lines and street furniture.
TMS also run other training courses on streetscape and road safety, removing guardrail, de-cluttering streets, and have delivered streetscape guidance courses for Transport for London.
