ThinkPlace joins forces with Spatial Vision
Geospatial information is the underpinning infrastructure for a wide range of societal challenges expressed in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, from renewable energy and smart transportation to accessible education and equitable society.
At ThinkPlace, as strategic human-centred designers who have adopted the Sustainable Development Goals as our guiding light in every project we do, we are excited to join forces with Geospatial science and technology experts, Spatial Vision and its IT brand, Lapis.
Spatial Vision delivers end-to-end location technology services to help organisations unlock deeper, more meaningful insights. For over 20 years, the company has provided specialist IT, data analytics, visualisation, and software engineering services together with strategic consulting to deliver robust, complex solutions worldwide.
With ThinkPlace’s world-leading capability in human-centered design and co-design as well as leading-edge thinking in innovation, digital design and behaviour change design, this alliance will facilitate regular sharing of expertise and resources to allow joint bids for work, creating compelling advantages for both companies and potential clients.
“This agreement sets up both companies for an exciting period of future growth and allows us to continue on our trajectory of executing at scale without sacrificing the attention to detail and methodological innovation that have helped drive our success,” said ThinkPlace Global Chairman John Body.

We expect this partnership will be extremely effective for both companies as well as our clients,” said Spatial Vision Managing Director Glenn Cockerton.
“Both are active across the health sector and in areas such as emergency management, local government and utilities. We have identified clear benefits in working together and believe the skills and capabilities each partner brings to the agreement will complement the other and make both parties stronger overall.”

The new partnership is built on a strong mutual worldview. Both companies share a foundational commitment to working for a better world, as demonstrated by their adoption of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a framework for pursuing and delivering positive impact.
