Masterplanning Sector Toolkit

Plan A have worked on many masterplan projects across the middle east and UK. Through our experience, we identified gaps in current guidance and procedures for masterplanning and urban planning projects. In response to this, Plan A’s Masterplanning sector have been working to develop a Masterplanning Toolkit.

We started by gathering our own knowledge and experiences into a single body of knowledge. Much of this information came from projects we have previously delivered and are currently working on. Trends were identified in project structure and requirements which we found vary according to country and region.

Masterplanning specialists HKS, Inc. and Prior + Partners, whom we have worked with previously, visited our London office to speak on the masterplanning processes in the UK and Middle East. This insight led to engaging discussions which were a valuable contribution.

Whilst our Masterplanning Toolkit is intended to elevate the knowledge and resources we have within the office. We also intend to share our tools with our clients and potential clients seeking guidance on masterplanning processes. Particularly on keys points to consider at the early phases to ensure a successful project set-up.

We are excited to launch our first phase of tools, which include:
·       A standard Masterplanning ‘plan of work’
·       Masterplanning glossary of terms
·       List of typical and specialist disciplines required for each work stage.
·       List of standard deliverables for each work stage.

We are in the process of developing typical programme activities and workflows for masterplanning projects to help set the framework for creating bespoke detailed programmes tailored to the needs of individual projects.

We are keen to share these tools and start a conversation with anyone who is interested – Please don’t hesitate to reach out!
