Urban Design

Urban design requires an interdisciplinary approach with teams of architects, landscape architects, engineers, planners, politicians, stakeholders and community leaders. We use various tools and methods to ‘raise the bar’ of urban design beyond traditional area structure plans, area redevelopment plans, zoning provisions and design guidelines. Our services range from staff capacity building in urban design to the preparation of urban design plans and guidelines to advisory services in reviewing and providing recommendations on plans and development applications.
