Urbanism and Planning

As populations around the world grow, so does the need for unique urban development solutions based on scalability, adaptability and resilience.

Steeped in tradition and expertise, yet skilled in progressive technology, the Woolpert urbanism and planning team balances today’s changing economic and social landscapes with tried-and-true community planning principles. We partner with various client and community types across the world, from military installations and master-planned communities to mixed-use and multifamily neighborhoods, generating holistic, transformative plans directly informed by and meeting the needs of project stakeholders.

Woolpert’s unique design collaborative addresses complex urban planning challenges from a multidisciplinary perspective. Our planners, architects, engineers and other designers are versed in all areas of site and community development, and when appropriate, we integrate our industry-leading, in-house geospatial experts and cutting-edge technology to collect accurate spatial data and provide expanded dimension and insight.

Sustainable, comprehensive plans, customized to the urban lifestyle, result in celebrated communities. That's urbanism and planning at Woolpert.
