Since 1978, the firms have provided clients the full range of planning, design and development services across Canada and around the world.

    planningAlliance helps clients realize development forms that are functional and affordable, yet beautiful, environmentally responsible, and socially inclusive.

    rePlan pioneered and is a global leader in addressing complex social, economic, housing and relocation challenges at resource development sites.

    The range of projects includes building design and construction, preparation of local site plans and plans of subdivision, comprehensive urban development plans for large cities in both the developed and developing worlds, reconstruction programs for communities devastated by natural disasters, and regional development plans serving vast geographic areas and/or millions of people.

    Work often includes the construction of approved plans and designs and, as a result, the firms fully understand the relationship between planning/design and what in the end is actually built.

    • Develop an intimate familiarity with the history and geography of the places in which it is working
    • Understand the needs and aspirations of current and future residents or users
    • Work at multiple scales at once, including region, city, district, block and lot, to thoroughly understand the potential implications of specific proposals

    • Facilitate a meaningful exchange of ideas between clients, the people affected by the projects and other stakeholders
    • Work with key stakeholders as part of the planning process
    • Integrate the planning, design, environmental, engineering and social science disciplines
    • Achieve the triple bottom line by combining environmental responsibility with social progress and solid economic returns
    • Identify pragmatic, affordable solutions that address short-, medium-, and long-term needs
    • Recognize that good development is good business
