Modeling & forecasting

The world’s urban environments, road and public transportation networks, and digital and energy/utility infrastructure systems, are under ever growing pressure to balance between the competing demand for goods and people movement and connectivity, and the creation of liveable places. Modeling is an essential aid to decision-makers and designers in identifying and optimizing this balance from regional and city level down to individual streets.

Our team provides services spanning all levels of modeling and all modes. Depending on the geographical study area and the questions you want answered, our team can come up with the most appropriate modeling approach. Whether it be determining economic benefits of new transportation infrastructure, analytical frameworks and assessment of pathways to net zero carbon, operational modeling to improve the performance of a public transportation corridor or optimizing station layouts for pedestrian capacity and movement, we have the global skills and capacity to provide insight that adds value to the design and operation of transportation infrastructure.

We offer a truly integrated approach – our transportation modelers, road designers, urban planners and economists work closely to ensure we have a shared understanding of the unique needs and objectives of each project. Our broad range of skills and experience means we will always adopt the right tool for the job.

How we can help you

Our models are not an end-product, rather they provide decision-makers with the insight they need to gain maximum value out of their asset, whether that be a development, road network or public transportation system.
