Master planning

Creating places that support a high quality of life for all, our master planning approach ensures regenerative, integrated, and inclusive solutions at every scale.

Enabling all life to flourish

Our Nordic legacy of regenerating cities such as Oslo, Stockholm, and Copenhagen demonstrate our ability to help position places as international models for liveability. Our all life-centred design approach to projects focuses on four principles:

        -Regeneration to support the built, ecological, and social systems having net positive impacts

        -Integration to recognise the complexity of places and embrace multidisciplinary systems thinking to deliver holistic solutions

        -Inclusion to ensure resilient solutions for many, not the few, by valuing human, ecological, and planetary health equally

       -Multiscale to understand a project’s context within wider systems and the communities it supports, we zoom out to see the big picture and zoom in to discover important details

Working with local authorities, landowners, developers, and communities, we have the necessary skills to deliver life-centred places. Our urban planners and designers, social and climate scientists, economists, strategic energy planners, transport planners, engineers, and digital modellers can master plan to transform any place.

We deliver large scale masterplans for city regeneration, urban and suburban interventions, healthcare facilities, education estates, airports, and ports.
