Smart city planning and design
Smart city planning that addresses urban growth holistically will support the effectiveness and efficiency of technological advances in smart cities. Smart planning embraces technology to improve urban conditions and lifestyles for urban residents.
We are actively involved in the design and development of a number of smart initiatives as part of Dubai's leaders vision to create a smart city in time for expo 2020. We are currently involved in the smart redevelopment of a large area of Dubai that includes Media City and Internet City, the original smart districts of the city and home to a number of high technology conglomerates. We are also working on Citywalk and Dubai Design District which are being pursued as smart cities with a variety of smart technologies within the public realm and architecture. For the Dubai Technology & Media Freezone Authority, we developed regional best practice design regulation to ensure their areas are fully accessible to all people, a critical objective of a smart city.
