Masterplanning & Urban Design

The creation of high quality, sustainable places is fundamental to the RPS approach to urban design and masterplanning. We provide a truly multi-disciplinary team to deliver sustainable solutions and quality design for large and complex developments.

We create innovative places and spaces where people want to live and work. Our strong environmental credentials have enabled us to discover and produce unique design solutions that are imaginative, engaging and energy efficient.

Our dynamic team includes urban designers, architects, landscape architects, environmental planners and graphics experts with considerable experience in public and private sector project management in the UK and Europe.

We work closely with all stakeholders in the development process to ensure a joined-up approach and have a proven track record of delivering design led masterplans. We engage the public in innovative consultation exercises and consider this a vital stage of the masterplanning and design process.
