UDL Icon Services UD and Planning

Our urban design + planning services can be tailored to fit each projects unique needs. Drawing from our consensus based approach we guide our clients, their various constituencies, and other concerned parties through a highly interactive visioning process. The outcomes of this process serve as a guide to creating a sustainable framework plan and supporting documentation, draft policy, and test and document investment strategies for each project. We produce illustrative plans, perspective drawings, and detailed drawings of key elements, documentation from precedent studies, proformas and models. Additionally, regulating plans and a form-based code accompany the final product of each project.

Rarely do architects and designers ever visit their designs after build out.  Our post occupancy evaluation services focus on existing buildings, gathering spaces and green spaces that have been in use or occupied for over a year. Post Occupancy Evaluations document how new buildings and spaces can be fine tuned, help in the renovation of existing buildings and spaces, address inefficiencies in design and cost, and archive lessons learned for future designs.

UDL Icon Services Visioning

The essence of our visioning services is found in the consensus based participatory processes involving the client and a wider array of stakeholders. Structured around intensive workshops the Urban Design Lab helps our clients identify strengths, define problems, set goals, establish programs, take advantage of opportunities, create a guiding vision, achievable objectives with measurable goals, create design solutions and evaluate feasibility. Projects range from building design and proformas, bond alignment, form-based coding, and conceptual framework planning and comprehensive master planning of various scales.
