Master Planning

Our Directors have considerable experience of major master planning projects, particularly in the Middle East.

Master planning is about anticipating and shaping the future of communities with respect for their past. It embraces social equity and environmental awareness, community liveability, in order to ensure sustainable development.

We aim to improve the environment and the quality of life of urban places by putting people in touch with their past and future. Our master planning services are focussed on providing engagement, deliverability, sustainability, and client support through the creative planning process.

Master Planning helps to identify and realise development potential in land, whether the site is small or very large. We have over 30 years experience of such projects, ranging from entire townships to the regeneration of major towns and cities.

‘Place-making’ and urban design is intimately involved with master planning where we employ the expertise gained over many years working in and teaching such skills.  HPL uses advanced visualization and 3D software, to portray the master planning vision to clients and to demonstrate its benefits.

In order to meet a client’s objectives and achieve full development potential, master planning must be visionary as well as practical. Therefore HPL seeks to integrate policy analysis, development planning and physical issues within a sound appreciation of financial, cost and phasing implications.
