AECOM Design + Planning

From regenerating cities and creating new communities to managing whole landscapes and designing inspiring public spaces, AECOM’s experts in Design + Planning address the complex challenges of our world, shaping a more positive future.

We are a leader in:


Town planning

Urban design

Landscape architecture

Economic development

Our collaborative and interdisciplinary way of working ensures that we create and plan places that are appreciative of context and grounded in local conditions. Along with innovation and design quality, our work is focused on maximising potential, social inclusion, best value for client and community, enhancing biodiversity and the careful use of natural resources.

Working with local and national government, regeneration companies, regional development agencies, developer partners and communities, we have been instrumental in planning and delivering better places for people, defining frameworks that promote economic resilience, and designing spaces that put towns and cities on the map.

Our planning teams have delivered record-breaking planning applications for the UK’s most significant developments in a generation. We have planned, designed, and guided delivery of award-winning new communities, and developed new ways of ensuring that people have access to the social and physical infrastructure that makes great places.

Recent projects in the UK include the award-winning regeneration and masterplanning on London’s Olympic Park and its legacy after the Games, and the North West Cambridge sustainable mixed use urban extension commissioned by the University of Cambridge, which represents the largest plans for expansion in the University’s 800 year history.

We have used our UK planning experience to champion spatial planning in other parts of the world, including regions with major economic, social and infrastructure challenges. Our Dubai 2020 Urban Masterplan will guide more sustainable forms of urban growth than the Emirate has seen in the past, and our structural planning work for the Sala Al-Deen province of Iraq will help to shape urban development priorities and infrastructure investments to improve the quality of life and opportunities for nearly a million people.
