Community & Environmental Planning

We work closely with Clients providing assessment and master planning services to apply environmentally sustainable approaches to community and regional planning.

We can provide a variety of mapping, research, and other technical functions to support community and regional projects and assist in policy development for both public and private sector Clients.  A master plan serves as both a vision and a guide to ensure the future success and sustainability of a community or region.  The primary focus of our planning methodologies is executing data analysis, problem-solving and the use of geomatics applications to support decision-making.  Our comprehensive assessments provide communities and organizations with a solid strategy to help them deal with the challenges and opportunities of the present and of the future.

Asset Management

Asset management helps communities manage municipal infrastructure assets and make better investment decisions.  It also helps reduce risks so that reliable and affordable services and a high quality of life can be provided to its residents.  We assist municipalities in addressing the infrastructure management challenges that they face by working with them throughout the process of infrastructure data collection, policy development, level of service evaluation, risk assessments, prioritizing infrastructure for renewal and replacement, and capital cost forecasting.  Our asset management model is consistent with the principles established by Nova Scotia Department of Municipal Affairs, the Atlantic Infrastructure Management Network (AIM), and is interactive with the Client and seeks input at all stages of the process.

Project Management

Effective project management, whether during the design process or the construction process, produces favourable project delivery. We partner with Clients to define goals and objectives to guide the delivery of infrastructure and municipal projects. Our project management model is consistent with the principles established by the Project Management Institute and will be interactive with the Client and seek input at all stages for needs re‐assessment and resource availability.
