Masterplanning + Urban Design
With most of the world’s people living in cities for the first time in history, how we plan our land and design our built environments is more significant than ever. Whether our planners, designers, architects, and engineers are helping to sculpt tomorrow’s neighborhood, campus, or destination, or regenerating existing land in a developed region, we work with our clients and their communities to optimize the potential of their sites.
Our expertise is rooted in the land and its relation to the built form. We seek first to understand the unique challenges and opportunities of a project; its financial goals; any regulatory drivers; and community perspectives. Working with AECOM, our clients have access to global experts in masterplanning, architecture, building engineering, interior design, and other critical disciplines, paired with a local understanding of cultures, people, and existing places derived from our global network of locally rooted studios.
Using tools that include Planning +, our trademarked modeling software, we can measure our projects in terms of return on investment and reductions in carbon footprint. Regardless of the need at hand, our multidisciplinary teams have the expertise to provide solutions that meet our clients’ needs while achieving physical, economic, ecological, and social sustainability.
