Setting the agenda through training

We have helped pioneer urban design training in all its forms in New Zealand over the past 15 years. This has covered areas such as growth planning, intensification, community design, transport specific urban design, guidelines and implementation strategies. Course attendees have represented public and private professional disciplines, community advocates and the development sector. For many the training sessions have been inspirational, coming away with a clear grasp of a range of urban issues, how they are connected, what their built form as well as environmental, social and economic implications are. They take home a range of good solutions, best practice methods and implementation strategies which draw from our considerable private and public sector project experience. Training sessions can range from basic to advanced levels. They are specifically organised to meet the unique needs of individual organisations. Sessions are facilitated by Kobus Mentz or Ian Munro with the support of a team of qualified urban designers.
