Livable cities and regions are defined by safe and thriving communities that offer proximity to jobs, entertainment and cultural options, and healthy environments.
State government departments and agencies with responsibility for planning, precincts and public spaces play an important role in shaping cities and regions. Other agencies and institutions – from health departments to universities to local councils – are focused on concentrating or expanding activities to improve service delivery, drive additional value or improve livability for local communities.
Our consultants work with government departments overseeing planning, precincts and public spaces, agencies driving regional and local development and universities, education and research institutions seeking to maximise research and commercialisation opportunities.
Governments are keenly focused on maximising opportunities and liveability for people and communities in cities and regional locations. Our consultants work with departments and agencies to develop strategies and plans to maximise the economic, environmental, social and cultural benefits of cities and regions, and the precincts and places within them.
Many educational institutions are exploring opportunities for new campuses and facilities to deliver greater value to students, expand their research capacity and build greater links with industry. Our consultants work with universities and other educational institutions to plan and help deliver campus, infrastructure and research developments.

Policy reform where the environment connects with the economy and community
