Integrated design - Aurecon

Bringing impactful collaboration to life

Integrated design

Connecting people and place through an integrated design approach

As the values of our communities shift, and we transition to a more sustainable, liveable future, it is vital that the places we design are connected and are embraced by the community.

The challenges in delivering urban and regional projects that connect people to place, require holistic thinking and approaches that identify and resolve the social, environmental and economic imperatives at play.

Key to overcoming the challenges of delivering complex cities, is the ability to balance the project vision on the one side with tight timeframes and budgets, and multiple stakeholders and technical disciplines on the other. It is this balanced approach to complex placemaking design problems that will create positive legacy for communities and the environment.
