The global population is growing. By 2050, seven billion people are expected to be living in cities; almost double the urban population today. Increasing urbanisation adds to the globe’s ongoing industrial, transport and water challenges, and so the need for comprehensive master planning is greater than ever.
Integrated Planning Expertise
The key to successful and sustainable development lies in a collaborative and integrated approach to planning. Royal HaskoningDHV’s track record spans more than 135 years in projects all over the world, and we are regularly called upon to deliver vision and strategy, policy and concept development.
Our experienced team of urban, economic and infrastructure planners combine worldwide expertise with local presence. That means we offer state-of-the-art plans that fit with local culture, as our extensive international portfolio demonstrates. We assist our clients with economic and market research to create spatial master plans for regions, industrial (port) zones and cities, new towns and urban renewal, business parks and science campuses, mixed-use developments, airport cities and transit oriented developments. Our clients are both government and private parties, all eager to boost economic developments in a sustainable and viable way.
Economy driven design
We shape every aspect of urban design, including water management, infrastructure, utilities and transportation. Vital services we provide include financial feasibility studies and environmental and social impact assessments. We provide attractive urban and landscape design, and create buildings from concept through to tender documents and supervision of construction.
Our plans are inspiring and competitive, as well as highly functional and economically sustainable. To us, success means delivering both business profitability and enhancing society. It gives us great pride to help create the exceptional communities and positive city environments of the future.
Comprehensive master planning
Taking a truly comprehensive and integrated approach is vital in developing successful spatial and regional economic plans. Every project sees us build a bespoke project team spanning disciplines across our company. That team might consist of strategy consultants, urban planners and designers, market researchers and engineers in the fields of infrastructure, ports, aviation, industry, water, energy or environment.
Sustainable planning requires close cooperation with each client and respectful stakeholder engagement; a process that is closely managed by our skilled and certified specialists in project management and project offices. Our master planning approach lies at the heart of all our developments. Royal HaskoningDHV master plans are inspiring and competitive as well as highly functional, thanks to thorough pre-feasibility and feasibility studies.
