Planning and master planning caters for the rapidly changing requirements of the public realm including population size, technology and waste management. Harnessing planning regulation to ensure quality living, learning and working environments is increasingly complex.
Master planning is the art of symbiosis. Our focus is to design buildings and infrastructure that thrive off each other - quantifying waste and utilising or repurposing it as fuel to tie in with the energy strategy, for example.
We consider energy and sustainability, wind, air quality, utilities and waste management strategy and maximise the opportunity for the site to act harmoniously. Identifying constraints or abnormal costs and developing a scheme with cognisance of those parameters, we look at the opportunities for the sharing of heat energy, food, water and waste, ultimately designing places that are environmentally, commercially and sociably sustainable.
