Masterplanning and Urban Design
The masterplanning of complex schemes on difficult sites has become a hallmark of the practice. Our mix of in-house site investigation and design skills enables us to provide a comprehensive and co-ordinated masterplanning service.
Our services include initial baseline surveys and audits, constraints analysis mapping, environmental capacity assessments, detailed designs, design guides and briefs, and subsequent implementation and management.
Brownfield sites constitute a significant proportion of our masterplanning workload with completed schemes encompassing residential, commercial and industrial, leisure and environmental end uses. Bringing derelict land back into productive use, fitting developments into their context and conserving environmental assets producing measurable economic benefits.
The integrated core of skills within our practice ensures that we are able to tackle urban design projects through a creative yet robust process. Combining a thorough appreciation and understanding of urban form we have the knowledge and vision to produce urban design strategies and detailed designs leading to the creation of dynamic and enterprising places.
We are experienced in community and stakeholder participation, public meetings and preparing exhibitions and leaflets.
