We collaborate to innovate. On every project, we form a core team of talented consultants to identify and respond to the key questions at hand – experts in transport, market/economic, sustainability, and more – we work with the best international and local partners to provide a balanced range of perspectives. Continuous collaborations with talented designers, engineers and economists spark new ways of thinking about problem solving.
We believe in bringing people together to tackle complex problems. Urban Strategies’ design charrettes are less about presenting, and more about working together with multiple stakeholders – experts and lay people – to analyse, illustrate, design and test solutions. We have developed tools such as on-the-spot 3D modelling to allow groups quickly, iteratively and successfully collaborate. When entering into any planning and urban design exercise there are many unknowns. Learning from stakeholders is essential to understanding site and surrounding area conditions, understanding the many aspirations for the site from different perspectives, and understanding potential risks and being able to proactively mitigate them.
We develop appealing and informative graphics to convey complex technical information and address a purpose, such as explaining decisions, soliciting input or promoting an initiative. Our materials are professionally designed, highly visual, and allow us to reach – and hear from — audiences who may not have been able to attend events. These materials include project brands or logos, web sites, interactive mapping tools and surveys, presentations, newsletters, posters, open house panels, briefing notes, and attractive infographics and illustrations.
