Urban design guidelines

In order to provide direction for built form development, as well as public and private realm design, SGL has prepared design guidelines for numerous different municipalities. We have experience in preparing municipal-wide documents that provide a basis for the design of development across entire municipalities, as well as guidelines for specified locations such as secondary plan and greenfield areas, existing downtown areas, and established residential neighbourhoods.

 

Key elements of these projects have included providing unique and engaging design documents based on a unified vision for each document, ensuring consistency with municipal policy, balancing progressive urban design standards with existing built form and character, and producing documents that are easy to read, understand, and implement.
