WND's Urban Design Division includes a diversified group of people possessing a variety of skills, knowledge and experience relating to urban design, architectural and graphic design matters. WND has designed and planned many important development projects and initiatives that have had a positive impact in shaping urban and rural environments. These range from large-scale community and neighbourhood plans to site-specific designs on smaller properties. Our services also include the preparation and utilization of graphic design and visualization tools to simulate and assess the potential impacts of development proposals on their surroundings.
WND has extensive expertise in preparing urban design guidelines which are used as effective tools to guide the desired form and scale of development in a variety of contexts. Similarly, WND has been retained by municipalities on many occasions to conduct architectural control reviews for large-scale developments.
