Urban planners sit at the complex intersection of architecture, public policy, transportation, politics, engineering, design, and history. Planners over the centuries have balanced competing needs to create public spaces that are both functional and attractive. CPP’s services help urban planners cut through the clutter and deliver technical solutions that respect multiple layers of public and private accountability.
Urban planners aren’t simply tasked with creating functional, efficient spaces; architecture and design play major roles as well. Sometimes you need to realize a specific vision, and sometimes you’re working to preserve a historical sense of place. Thanks to our long heritage of working alongside architects and designers, CPP’s people understand such unquantifiable considerations and strive to deliver technical solutions that respect aesthetic sensibilities.
Safety and comfort
Successful urban spaces are those in which citizens feel safe and comfortable. But safety and comfort rarely happen by accident: they’re usually the result of conscious design. CPP’s services help urban planners address airflow, pollution, and other environmental concerns before they become problems. And in many cases, we can help you take advantage of the local environment for ventilation, power, and heating needs.
Some of the greatest speedbumps in the successful design of an urban space involve satisfying the regulations that govern nearly every aspect of modern civilization. From indoor air quality and occupant comfort to renewable energy mandates and building codes, navigating the red tape is a full-time job. CPP’s breadth of services means we’re familiar with nearly every code and standard you’re likely to encounter. And in many cases, our technical staff have been actively involved in the creation of those codes. So we won’t just help you check boxes. We’ll help you understand why the boxes are there to begin with.
With so many competing requirements, solutions to urban planning challenges are rarely straightforward. When you’re being pulled in so many directions, trust CPP to provide solid advice that solves your technical problems without getting in your way.
