Atelier Ten was founded in 1990 by a team of engineers including the current Principal Patrick Bellew (2). Initially the firm worked with small projects that were local and focused on basic sustainability, but the firms comprehensive analysis of environmental issues quickly gained notoriety in the engineering and architecture fields. As projects became regional and ultimately global, more an more effort was put into the services offered. The firm expanded its office, adding sections for fire, thermal, heat, sound, and project management engineering. Due to the increased demand of the firm’s services, Atelier Ten took on consulting as a means to give data and thoughts without being tied down to a single project. The firm has also opened its doors in the past ten years to collaboration with other big name engineering and architecture firms such as Thorton-Tomasetti, Buro-Happold, and Arup. Due to the company’s success, additional offices have been opened around the world. The firm has become a key player in the promotion of environmental legislation and agreements in the UK, with there most recent work looking to push the Kyoto Standards (3).

Key projects in the history of the company include the Singapore Art Center in Singapore (1997), Federation Square in Melbourne, Australia (2002), the Apple Flagship Store in Tokyo (2003), the Comcast Center in Philadelphia (2008), and most recently the Gardens By the Bay in Singapore Bay Marina (2010) (1).

At the end of 2020, Atelier Ten joined the Surbana Jurong Group, a global consultancy in urban and infrastructure development headquartered in Singapore. They are a distinct member company within the Group, and by joining forces they are deepening their expertise and strengthening their commitment to championing sustainability and developing climate change solutions.
