urban design

High quality urban design is a key tool in the economic, social and environmental development of town and cities across Yorkshire.

Well-designed buildings, neighbourhoods and public space are attractive to businesses. The benefits of which can be seen across the region. Design can act as a catalyst for market confidence and can help change the perception of a place amongst investors.  It has also been well documented that good design increases economic values through increased rental values and business rates.

Integreat Plus have a well-established track record of driving forward the regeneration, investment and development of high quality places. We appreciate the economic value good design can bring and use urban design to deliver spatial solutions to economic problems.

Spatial Design for Economic Development

Our talented team of architects and urbanists can work closely with you and your stakeholders to develop urban design solutions that facilitate the growth and diversification of local economies.

We combine physical master planning with the spatial needs of business sectors and the economic aspirations of local authorities. A strong understanding of the local context is important to us on all projects and we use our sophisticated graphics skills to develop and explore a range of solutions.

Adding value through design

When developing urban design projects we always strive to deliver economic growth through enhanced design. This includes:

  • Improving accessibility and movement across places to contribute to more effective economic growth.
  • Boosting the growth of the visitor economy by helping to create a quality destination. Urban or rural.
  • Objective investment in places to ‘raise the game’ in terms of occupier demand, jobs created and quality of employment.
  • Creating economic savings through carbon neutral development.
