Although Marsha Bousquet has 26 years of experience related to urban infrastructure development from planning through implementation, since 2009, Marsha?s focus has been entirely dedicated to AFP/P3-type projects. Her role extends from the commercial management of P3 projects, design team management, bid management during RFQ/RFP stage, and instilling best practices in delivery. Prior to that, she undertook master planning and entitlements for major redevelopment projects in Canada and the United States that have reshaped development patterns to take advantage of public transit, contributing to more sustainable city building.

Her professional experience in planning major infill, redevelopment projects involving the transformation of industrial lands to mixed-use, Transit Oriented Developments; master site planning for light rail and commuter rail transit stations; transportation planning studies for urban transit; and securing entitlements related to multi-tower high rise residential and mixed-use projects gives her a broad and unique perspective into design team work on AFP/P3 projects.

We have passed the point where half of the world's population is living in cities. If we as planners and designers want to continue to fight urban sprawl, then we need to focus on maintaining a high quality of green infrastructure in our cities and in particular around transit. The public realm, including parks, streets, shared streets and public plazas need to be designed to maximize the human experience. How we animate those spaces, and manage them with a mix of good design and technology will dictate the quality of life in our future cities.
