Integrated Design

Good urban design should be sustainable design. The success of a place is about how it works, not just how it looks. To deliver places that will be successful and sustainable in the long term requires an integrated approach at the design stage. Urban design can bring together solutions to wide-ranging issues, such as environmental performance, use of resources, stability of communities and economic viability

To achieve this consideration should be given to:

  • Operation and functioning of the design team
  • Implications of energy requirements on urban form
  • Making places work better – improving viability and sustainability through having appropriate uses, densities and building in flexibility
