Integrated Community Planning
Cities are among the most complex and important systems ever created. Their planning does not lend itself to specialized expertise so much as to an integrated approach in which the interaction among systems is as much of interest as the operational characteristics of any individual factor. Our approach combines hundreds of unique skill sets and areas of expertise, with deep understanding of communities, and strong local knowledge and client recognition.
An integrated community plan is a vibrant, enticing, multi-dimensional representation of an achievable future. It addresses all the myriad aspects of a functioning community ranging from energy needs to community character and culture, from mobility and climate to economics, water, sustenance, land-use, facilities, and waste management.
Creating such a plan incorporates the latest in computer technology with the best methods of systemic problem solving and stakeholder outreach, diverse technical expertise, and a deep understanding of how communities function. This understanding underpins all of our planning services as we pull together diverse and complex issues into a holistic approach to community sustainability.
