Master Planning & Urban Design
Master Planning clearly defines the desired outcomes of the project, including how each feature of your building will enable you to achieve your organization’s vision or purpose as a direct result. The Master Plan considers who will benefit or be impacted by the project, what future growth is expected, and what additional programming or building functions will be added later that are not part of the initial project phase.
Master Planning is not exclusive to large projects, but rather it is a critical piece for any project that involves long-term planning, phases spread out over time, or the need for help defining needs and desires for a project’s impact.
We work collaboratively with project stakeholders to complete a Vision Workbook. This team often includes people who will be working in or using the completed building, as well as leaders from the organization. Together we create a shared vision for the project that is targeted to meet your current and future objectives.
The level of detailed planning and documentation we provide give clients confidence that at the end of the project process, the building will meet their needs. We invest significant time in meeting with our clients’ stakeholders to develop an authentic and inclusive vision for the project, and then provide a scope of work, phasing plan, floor plans, and sketches.
