In one of our previous posts, “The Demand & Growth of Construction Sector” we talked about the rapidly increasing population, and especially in urban areas and cities in which has resulted in increasing demand for more developed smart infrastructure nowadays. Good urban planning is providing the solution to the increasing population and lack of space in cities. Urban planning can effectively control the use of land and landscape architecture of the urban area.
What is urban planning?
“Urban planning is a technical and political process concerned with the development and design of land use and the built environment, including air, water, and the infrastructure passing into and out of urban areas, such as transportation, communications, and distribution networks.” Source from WikiPedia
The idea of urban planning is started in the mid of the 19th century where people started the urban reform to fix the disorder and masses of the industrial cities. Continue to the late 20th century the term sustainable development has slowly become the goal of urban planning. The urban plan consists of in-depth research and analysis, strategic thinking, landscape architecture, public transportation & consultation, policy implementation and management. An urban design planner is often responsible for enforcing the chosen strategies and policies. A good urban planner is able to deal with both short and long term planning and projects at various scales.
Urban planning is one of the most skillful tasks that is able to turn the city developments to adhere the healthy growth for a very long period of time. Urban planning is executed by a group of experience and specific professional skills. There are not many engineering consultancy in Malaysia or architectural firm Malaysia can execute this job. It is crucial for getting a well-known and accredited engineering consultancy who are able to offer a fully accredited urban planning & landscape architecture services.
