The importance of preparation
IBI Group can confidently lead the strategic planning phases of projects in all sectors of urban development, providing key insights into the logistical opportunities and challenges of our client’s builds before any ground is broken.
Our integrated approach explores financial, environmental, demographic, and infrastructural assessments, as well as adherence to key guidelines and design principles. We also explore how new technologies can be embedded into the build, and ways in which related projects can bolster a client’s plan.
As part of our process, we often setup workshops with executives or steering committees to prioritize our approach and evaluate options with input from key stakeholders — helping our entire team land on a smart, sound, and fully aligned strategy from the outset of a project.
