A Team of Architectural Master Planning Professionals

A master plan is a dynamic long-term planning document that provides a conceptual layout to guide future growth and development. A master plan includes analysis, recommendations, and proposals for a site's population, economy, housing, transportation, community facilities, and land use. It is based on public input, surveys, planning initiatives, existing development, physical characteristics, and social and economic conditions. A good master plan should appropriately address the following issues:

  • Develop a phasing and implementation schedule and identify priorities for action
  • Act as a framework for regeneration and attract private sector investment.
  • Conceptualize and shape the three-dimensional urban environment.
  • Define public, semi-private, and private spaces and public amenities.
  • Investigate infrastructure capacities and requirements
  • Determine the mix of uses and their physical relationship.
  • Analyze traffic patterns – vehicular and pedestrian
  • Engage the local community and act as builder of consensus.
  • Address contaminated areas and create a strategy for remediation.
  • Analyze the urban context and develop a urban design plan.

Master Plans are complex tools that help municipalities, institutions, agencies and various clients discover project issues before the design process begins. The best master plans are very detailed and highly informative. When complete the master plan will help the municipality, agency, institution, client, architect, engineer and consultant better understand the parameters and extent of the project. Cost analyzes and timeline projections are made clear and can be further investigated in the feasibility study. . The master plan should contain technical information, forecast socio-economic goals, propose environmental solutions and outline design concepts.
