Facilitating the city
Complexity of urban issues
The situations in which urban projects are developped are by essence multidimensional involving urban, economical, cultural, social and environnemental issues. Thanks to its interdisciplinary team, CityTools facilitates the comprehension of the various dimensions of a project and proposes relevant and efficient solutions.
Urban projects today are going through a very complex institutional process. The urbanistic and environnemental regulations are constantly evolving including multi layer dimensions that makes them more and more complicated to apprehend. Thanks to a strong legal expertise and a significant knowledge in the management of projects, CityTools is able to facilitate the path of any complex project and advise wisely the decision makers.
The evolutions in the organisation of territories invites the project owners to think outside the perimeter of their projects and question their impact on a wider, metropolitan scale. CityTools can provide a strong expertise in management of projects on a local, regional and european scale
Complexity of management
The players participating in urban management are more and more numerous and diverse. They interact in various contexts and timings. CityTools facilitates the understanding of those interactions and acts as a coordinator and mediator, in the decision making process.
We are witnessing today a redefinition of the relations between the politics, the experts, the associations, and non specialists in the urban projects. The cities are not developped withoud consultation anymore, both upstream and downstream of a process. Thanks to a solid expertise in participation process and governance, both theoretical and practical, CityTools can offer a facilitation of the public dialogue around projects.
The challenge of global warming and the ecological crisis (biodiversity, air, soil, etc) are pushing the project owners to include the environnemental dimension, further and further. CityTools proposes a high level expertise and a general strategy based on experience of management of environnementally friendly projects.
