Landscape Architecture and Urban Design

Our Land Development & Urban Design team produces visionary solutions to meet local needs

Successful urban design places people at its centre and responds to the needs of both client and location.


At Opus we understand local needs and communities and believe this is central to our success in the land development and urban design area.

We collaborate on concepts and design and can quickly pull together architects, landscape architects, urban planners, engineers, ecologists and economists. Having the right input from the right people produces smart and holistic solutions– and better public spaces for communities.

We work with government agencies, private and commercial developers, and transportation authorities.
