Master planning encompasses a range of work from visioning and strategic planning to design development. It requires a multi-disciplinary approach which brings together land-use planners, urban designers, socio-economic/market analysts, transportation planners, amongst others. In many of our projects, IBI Group prepares the master plan supported with economic and market analysis, mobility and access strategies, architectural and landscape design consulting, project management and detailed design services through to construction administration.
We have a host of master planning projects to our credit, including downtown master plans, campus master plans, revitalization projects, resort development plans, and design guidelines. We’ve also undertaken numerous mixed-use, transit-oriented development projects (TOD), integrated planning studies and other master planning exercises, which have shaped major built projects in cities and communities globally. Our strength lies in methodically understanding the municipal framework and working with the existing policies to develop master plans that are innovative yet context-sensitive and implementable.
