Each of our companies' particular skills and experience can be drawn on to explore these challenging questions. Teamwork and collective experience can help solve the big questions, while our specific expertise can tackle the design and engineering challenges that arise in each particular place, whether they be political, stakeholder, financial, hydrology, or geotechnical challenges.

Global approach, local context

Key principles of our approach to waterfront development include:
• Identity – understanding the unique character and diversity of natural and built places
• Local context – respecting the particular local and regional context
• Inclusivity – providing a benefit for all
• Connectivity – celebrating the edge between land and water
• Revitalization – restoring existing waterfront communities into resilient places
• Sustainability – ensuring environmental, cultural, social, and economic considerations permeate
