MASTERPLANNING / URBAN DESIGN

Our understanding and delivery from concept to final implementation of successful places, masterplans and design frameworks is second to none. Placemaking informs our approach along with a willingness to listen and learn from clients and communities. We have prepared masterplans of all sizes from small settlements to new towns and city centres. We examine thoroughly every place we work on, identifying strengths and opportunities as well as weaknesses and constraints.

We employ a range of analytical techniques, working with other specialists where necessary, to survey the landscape setting and townscape context, understand the socio-economic characteristics, conduct market analysis, geo-technical, hydrological and services analysis, assess site accessibility and connectivity and review the policy framework to map the influencing factors on development. Furthermore, where appropriate, we undertake research into the historic context of a place; revealing its social history, collective memory and the significance of its physical heritage. This enriches our knowledge about a site’s historic legacy, so informing, and adding value to, the development of a future vision.
