Urban Design and Site Planning
Arterra has extensive experience in site planning, the creation of large scale master plans and urban design solutions. Our input focusses on opportunities and achieving optimised site yields. Arterra aims to create vibrant and economically feasible urban design solutions. We respect, retain and incorporate existing landscape features wherever feasible, to maximise property values and returns. We often offer alternatives to traditional, high cost and up-front hard engineering solutions and maximise lower cost soft solutions, especially in regard to integrated drainage and vegetation retention requirements. We ensure the site plan and corresponding earthworks address potential pedestrian access issues, particularly when dealing with aged care facilities and can coordinate logical services corridors. We work closely with architects and engineers to ensure useful and valuable external environments are created through the thoughtful arrangement of buildings and devise creative and workable streetscape solutions.
