Rapid Planning

© 2012 Rapid Planning


Where and when planning sustainable urban infrastructure for fast expanding cities, aspects of decentralised planning, potential synergies of the systems, and spatial aspects should be linked in a way that resources are conserved and greenhouse gases minimised. By means of Rapid Planning, interfaces and synergies as well as bottlenecks in the urban infrastructure system can be quickly identified. The result then will build the basis for the detailed design which must be worked out by the respective city authorities.


Rapid Planning is conceptualised as a form of integrative overview planning that intends to provide the essential information necessary to establish feasible urban development scenarios. In Rapid Planning several sectors with focus on supply (water, energy, urban agriculture) and disposal systems (waste, waste water) are involved. For this field of topics we will be using the synergies thus directly contributing to reduce the pressure on the primary raw materials and to emission savings. Trans-sectoral planning will aid the minimisation of trade-offs and increase synergies providing mutually reinforcing solutions between sectors and as a consequence save costs and resources by means of regional infrastructure and resource management.
