We custom-design project scopes to address urban equity and urbanization 'questions' - using research, data analytics and design. Our three focus areas are listed below, but each project involves a unique blend of these services.
STRATEGIC URBAN PLANNING
We highlight a set of governing design principles for urban renewal and redevelopment projects - based on a review of strategic city planning documents, site analyses, stakeholder interviews, and community discussions. These design principles are based on the specific cultural and societal makeup of a neighborhood and its vision for growth. We also ensure they align with the city's overall economic development goals.
We guide and coordinate project teams to reach their site-specific equity and environmental goals through sustainability rating system consulting services. We can also custom-design sustainability goals and objectives based on the most applicable elements of these rating systems.
URBANIZATION RESEARCH & IMPLEMENTATION
We conduct thorough reviews of literature (academic articles, corporate publications, government publications) to address urbanization challenges. We produce reports that summarize the main themes in the literature and take this forward to list best-practice recommendations to infuse into your project. We then guide your team to implement these recommendations.
