Transport

Transport planning is key to unlocking the potential and value of any new development within the built environment especially the opportunities around masterplanning the cities of the future. It is also key to re-creating thriving economies and communities when focusing on regeneration of existing urban environments in the UK and worldwide.

Imaginatively planned and environmentally executed transport hubs, marine ports, road networks, railway networks, rivers and canals contribute to creating community ‘wholeness’. They link communities to the outside world, create vital routes for commercial interchange and provide access and flow within public spaces linking to local transport interchanges.

Working as part of a multi-disciplinary infrastructure team the transport planning consultancy offers a wide range of planning and traffic engineering services to private and public sector clients. We have completed many prestige projects in the UK and around the world. Our main areas of work include masterplanning, transportation studies and assessments, local transport planning, parking studies, development of trip and parking manuals  and network capacity assessments. Our team brings multi-skilled expertise to such challenges as the integration of new transport innovations  into the existing network, traffic management and utility diversions.

To deliver reductions in carbon emissions the BuroHappold transport consultancy is particularly focused on encouraging the development of efficient public access transport hubs,  the adoption of more sustainable modes of travel and the promotion of planning that reduces the need for travel.

Additionally to make roads safer for the travelling public and for commercial usage we employ comprehensive safety auditing and remedial engineering.

Dar es Salaam thumbnail

Project

13/06/2014

Dar Es Salaam faces some key social and economic challenges as one of the poorest countries in Africa, with growing inequality despite GDP growth of 5-6% per year. There is a growing backlog of urban infrastructure requirements and transportation relies primarily on privately provided mini-buses. Water and electricity household connections remain low and 80% of housing is ‘informal’. In the past, masterplans for the city have not been implemented due to a lack of coordinated planning and inadequate resources.

TRACE City energy thumbnail

Project

19/06/2013

Consideration of the efficiency of energy use at the city-scale can present budget constrained cities with a significant opportunity to respond to their energy needs without sacrificing their development priorities. The World Bank’s Energy Sector Management and Assistance Programme recognised that for city authorities to successfully identify appropriate and feasible energy efficiency interventions, they need new and practical tools that inform the underpinning decision-making processes. Looking to catalyse more rapid understanding of city-scale energy use issues and appropriate responses, the World Bank commissioned BuroHappold to develop a Tool for Rapid Assessment of City Energy (TRACE).
