Chapman Taylor features as RLI Magazine’s September cover story

Chapman Taylor is the subject of RLI Magazine’s September cover story, in which Main Board Director Adrian Griffiths is interviewed about the company’s recent and upcoming projects and discusses what makes for a successful and future-proofed development.

RLI (Retail and Leisure International) Magazine is the only global magazine dedicated to both the retail and leisure development sectors.

In the two-page article, titled ‘Designing for the future’, Adrian talks about the differing challenges facing retail and leisure developments in the UK and internationally, and how to design in a way which meets those challenges successfully.

Adrian also discusses the way in which Chapman Taylor is expanding its reach to new markets and sectors as well as investigating and innovating in the latest design and construction techniques and technologies.

The magazine’s cover image shows the nearly completed Caspian Waterfront development in Baku, Azerbaijan – an emblematic landmark on the city’s Caspian shoreline for which both the architecture and interiors were designed by Chapman Taylor.
