Physical Planning

Physical planning is a key component of urban development initiatives and sets the boundaries that any detailed project must adhere to – such as the legal and technical guidelines that should be followed. Urban transformation and renewal must be developed as a proactive element of physical planning as it provides a practical and sustainable means of preparing for future urbanisation.

Creating liveable cities

Effective transportation systems are a prerequisite for a city’s social and economic progress. For several decades, Ramboll has developed solutions that increase mobility and reduce traffic, without compromising efficiency.

Vibrant public and recreational spaces also make an important contribution to increasing urban liveability and serve to attract residents, businesses and tourists. Ramboll has world class expertise and an enviable track record in creating the ‘blue/green’ physical elements that breathe life into both new and existing urban spaces.

Promoting sustainable growth

With the U.N. Convention on Biological Diversity predicting a 150% increase in the footprint of cities by 2030, urbanisation has a significant impact on land use. Ramboll specialists support cities in optimising spatial planning and zoning as well as setting up the governance structures, policies and regulations needed to promote controlled growth.

As demand grows in relation to the size, quality and quantity of apartments, parks, and other urban infrastructure, Ramboll can help cities to transform and rejuvinate themselves to meet these needs.
