IDOM approaches the planning of new cities from an integrated perspective, incorporating all the variables required to create a functional urban reality in harmony with the territory. We design city models which are liveable and inclusive, generating a healthy, environmentally stable social dynamic, with the correct provision of amenities and services, and creation of employment. The development of these models are economically and financially viable.
Urban transformation is an integrated process which must be based on social cohesion and public participation, environmental regeneration and economic sustainability to achieve the revitalisation of depressed or informally built-up urban areas. These are areas with enormous potential for conversion into dynamic urban hubs, more compact in order to favour eco-mobility and a balance of diverse uses. We incorporate bioclimatic design parameters and intelligent systems for the operation and management of urban infrastructure and services. All this leads to increased competitiveness, attracting highly qualified persons and excellence activities.
Our approach to territorial planning involves exploiting the inherent strengths of the region, identifying opportunities with the greatest potential for socio-economic development while improving the quality of life of the citizens. In addition, we contribute to the competitiveness of the region through the inclusion of functional communications networks, promoting the introduction of economic activities which lead to the generation of qualified employment while maintaining total respect for the environment.
The most competitive regions develop highly specialised infrastructure to sustain the Smart Growth of the territory. These Infrastructures of Excellence include such initiatives as Technology Parks, Knowledge Cities, University Campuses, Convention and Exhibition Centres… providing a network of Technology and Talent to enhance the potential of the region. IDOM has extensive experience in developing these projects and has established network of professional relationships with associations and institutions such as the European Commission, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, WARNER BROS, or the International Association of Science Parks (IASP).
Regions and cities need to assess their vulnerability with regard to the effects of climate change, and to identify the options to convert them into resilient cities, with the capability to build sustainable socio-economic and environmental growth from the current position and, hence, strengthen the tendency towards positive growth. IDOM is working with the Inter-American Development Bank, the Global Environment Fund and the World Bank, providing a holistic approach and tools for the projects which aim for environmental, urban and fiscal sustainability. At the present, IDOM is the lead Consultant in this type of study within the Latin America and Caribbean Region.
