The Urban Designers understand the sensitivities of project context and the demanding, often multi-functional needs of the site and its surroundings. Their place making expertise seeks to promote sustainable development, safe walkable neighbourhoods and to promote civic pride through high quality public realm. The public realm provides the canvas and setting for public life, and therefore adds significant value to the built environment.
The team works with Council colleagues, stakeholders, specialists and other professionals, to design, deliver and assist in the implementation of successful schemes.
Our knowledge of public realm design includes a practical understanding of products, materials, costs, maintenance and management, which together with the functional requirements of the site are vital in the detail design process.
