The development of sustainable urban solutions has been part of Ramboll’s DNA since the company’s foundation 70 years ago. Our philosophy is to always plan and design for people and we pride ourselves on creating technically excellent solutions that promote improved quality of life.
A holistic approach to urban liveabilityTo achieve liveable solutions, Ramboll’s holistic and integrated urban planning model encapsulates the environmental, social, economic, and physical aspects of a city - rather than treating each element of the urban environment, such as water or transport infrastructure, in isolation.
We recognise a market need for an all-encompassing service provider that can offer independent guidance and practical support at every level of the urban development process. Our comprehensive offering covers:
- Strategy – We create the framework for exploring and identifying benefits, needs and long term focus areas through our management competencies in governance, policy making, socio-economics, and stakeholder management
- Planning – Our ability to transform innovative ideas into pragmatic, implementable proposals is borne out of an extensive record on urban master planning projects worldwide
- Detailed design – We help to realise liveable solutions by drawing on our world class technical expertise within areas such as transport infrastructure, water and energy, sustainable buildings, architecture, urban landscaping and design
Tailored and implementable solutionsWe understand that there are no ‘one size fits all’ answers to achieving liveability and we therefore develop solutions that are fully adapted to the local context to ensure local ownership and long term success.
In addition, we are strongly focused on developing implementable master plans that are both tangible and cost-effective.
