Smart City Planning

Our expertise in smart city planning collates from our long standing experience of city planning - be it an airport city, a tourist resort city, an urban growth center, an industrial town or any other town of relevance. We are using up-to-date and best urban planning practices for generating an improved living environment under targeted economic transformation.

By smart cities, we refer to the cities that are founded on smart technologies related to building construction, transportation, infrastructure etc. and use multiple information and communication technology solutions to manage its assets. By being smart, these cities are able to offer a high quality of living environment.

In the smart city planning, we offer mainly the following services:

1. Best urban planning practices for overall urban environment improvement.

According to us, the formation of smart cities begins with employment of best urban planning practices for overall urban environment improvement. We aim at establishing highly advanced infrastructure – adequate water supply, electricity supply, sanitation incl. solid waste management, public and private transportation system, affordable housing schemes/projects, good governance esp. e-governance, city participation, facilities and amenities etc. Smart solutions are applied in all urban sectors. Application of GIS plays a crucial role and enables a scientific planning in most of the sectors.

2. Planning measures towards establishment of successful collaboration between the public and private sectors.

In order to remain smart city, a city must achieve its economic sustainability with a long term vision. Real estate sector serves as the backbone of the GDP in most economies. Real estate developers together with Govt. can enable fast economic transformations in any place. Therefore, we believe that a smart city must project a deep real estate market that allows PPP models, especially in cash stripped towns. This refers to an adequate realignment of the landuse structure and setting right the institutional framework that favourably facilitate the acquisition, ownership, management and disposal of the asset.

It is important that the infrastructure improvement targets to create an attractive business environment. The strong institutional environment of real estate presents a strong market for the foreign investment.

3. Participatory mechanisms in planning

We hold workshops with the stakeholders incl. community participation, whereby solutions for a win-win situation for all are worked out.
