Placemaking

Our multi-disciplinary Placemaking practice produces long-term strategies that position communities for success in every aspect of the urban experience – from day-to-day living, learning and health, to major transportation and infrastructural growth.

Our team of Placemaking experts apply a human-centric design approach that recognizes the interconnections between people and their physical environments, leveraging opportunities to put low-impact development and sustainability at the forefront of urban change.

Shaping communities

The multi-disciplinary nature of IBI Group’s Placemaking practice allows every facet of a community to be considered holistically, ensuring that the resulting place focuses on healthy living, accessibility, lifestyle choice, and vibrant activities and amenities.

Creating urban places around transit infrastructure

Transit-oriented development (TOD) patterns support the creation of vibrant, diverse and livable places. As a method of curbing sprawl and reliance on auto-travel in our communities, we recognize the power of place creation alongside linear infrastructure such as rail, bus rapid transit, and active transportation networks.

Strategic planning through IBI Quantum

We are continually looking for ways to shift the perception of technology from a ‘futuristic’ part of our urban environments, to a seamless function of our everyday lives, integrating smart technologies like our proprietary IBI Quantum into our design of distinct and vibrant places.

Planning for a resilient future

Our placemaking focus provides the platform for the innovative thinking that is necessary to developing adaptive and flexible designs in the face of rapid societal change, carefully balancing social, environmental and economic priorities within the design of a community.

Shaping unique, healthy and inclusive urban places.
