Arc minds


Who’s making Arc fly?

A skilled team of magic-makers is getting the Arc project off the ground.

We’ve brought together boffins. Businesspeople. Creatives and number-crunchers. Architects, designers, planners, engineers, hospitality professionals, CGI conjurers and coders. They’re drawn from all kinds of backgrounds, but one thing unites us all – a belief in our amazing, uplifting product.
