Civilocity is a urban development group like no other.

We are a firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technologists, working across every aspect of today’s built environment. We believe that cities are the laboratories of human ingenuity and innovation.

We help cities of all scales unlock their full potential by leveraging existing strengths,  identifying new opportunities, and applying new approaches and technologies that enable long term, sustainable growth.

Our Philosophy: Smart Cities are Innovation Hubs

 

Arts, culture, academic institutions and technology are a city’s key strengths to be competitive in the global smart city race.

When these vital resources of creative innovation fall into silos, they never realize their full potential.

The key to activating these vital creative assets is to cluster them into a single creative hub.

 

This Innovation Hub will:

 

  • Create collaborative opportunities that will further strengthen our arts, culture, academic institutions and technology communities.

  • Create a unique destination that will drive significant tourism, jobs and tax revenue.

  • Foster significant jobs creation, job training and STEAM education programs, local business opportunities and support, and reduction in crime.

Our unique approach is based on the latest research on what makes humans and urban communities thrive.

Consultants and developers of intelligent city platforms that maximize impact per square foot.

 A creative development partner that understands the importance of acting quickly in response to market opportunities.

A strategic partner that gains consensus from community stakeholders and implements a development plan that is market-driven and economically feasible.  

We help our clients provide access to technology - through STEAM education, jobs training and jobs - by attracting innovators and established technology companies to live, work, play and learn.

 

A Living Laboratory

Central to our approach is innovation through infrastructure. The convergence of cyber and physical infrastructure is transforming the way we design and build the cities of tomorrow, deploying these new technologies on existing infrastructure however is quite expensive and disruptive. Large scale re-development projects present the unique opportunity to create  smart infrastructure test beds, a living laboratory, where new technologies and best practices from the ground up can be developed. Here we forge traditional physical-infrastructure (transportation and transit systems, buildings, pipes, power grid, concrete and steel) with cyber-infrastructure (computers, networks and sensors) in ways that are just emerging and others that are still over the horizon.
