As a supplemental service to our core focus of architecture, planning is an integral part of the process. In as much, the sustainable planning and siting of our built projects typically initiates the sustainable development of a well thought out project. Our approach to planning starts with the environment and an understanding of how our projects will engage the site to facilitate drainage, pedestrian connectivity and other overarching factors affecting the layout of the development. Other factors such as local weather patterns, prevailing winds, solar studies and general environmental impacts are considered to maximize the benefits of the project. In addition to environmental influences, our approach to planning also takes into consideration the influences of the built environment including vehicular connectivity, transit interface, infrastructure capacities and community engagement and feedback to our proposed direction.
