Spanish term or phrase: does this make sense?
De acuerdo con su petición, hemos realizado un estudio para incluir nuestro X en la obra de la Urbanización ABC, que se encuentran estudiando, según los datos aportados por ustedes.

See the plural 'encuentran' - what does that refer to ???

Sounds to me like it may refer to "ustedes"? Which you are (in the process of) studying, according to the information you provided?

que ustedes (o ellos) se encuentran estudiando...


Explanation:
I agree with both colleagues. It could be any of those pronouns. Is there a third party mentioned in the paragraph?. If not it would most probably be "ustedes".

Hope it helps!
