Working with regions, cities and towns planning for people and places from vision and masterplan to design and delivery.
Cities are complex and dynamic social, economic and physical entities. Each place is unique and the way we design and plan urban places has a profound impact on people’s lives, society and the environment.
Our urbanism team embraces these challenges and responsibilities with a multi-disciplinary and collaborative approach, engaging with cities, communities, developers and other stakeholders to inform decision making and to shape and deliver the places we live in.
