We are members of the American Planning Association and eligible candidates to the American Institute of Certified Planners—AICP.  We have experience in Urban Design strategies —Transformative Urban Systems and Adaptable Urban Revitalization, and Integrated Regional Management —Territorial Land-use planning with a rural approach. We establish links between the environmental, urban, and fiscal sustainability dimensions. In this way, sustainable and transversal solutions respond to the needs  of our communities and territories. We manage land-use entitlements and represent the owner in the multi-step planning and permitting process.

We are convinced that professional services in the Fourth Industrial Revolution are increasing quality and competitiveness thanks to Big Data. For this we optimize our professional services through internal quality control processes  not only for the improvement in the processes and achievement, but also for innovative services and greater added value. We are internal auditors in Integrated Management Systems HSEQ — Standards ISO 9001: 2015, ISO 14001: 2015 and ISO 45001: 2018.

PROCESS

Equilibrio is vigorously and determinedly engaged in intervening urban conditions with a multidisciplinary approach  to create a dynamic relationship between the natural and built environment. At the onset of each project, we complete a comprehensive environmental analysis and facilitates a series of sustainability workshops with stakeholders to establish goals. As the design evolves,  our professionals in design, planning and public administration, develop creative, comprehensive and feasible design solutions. Following the feasibility process, the team conducts analysis and reports for the fiscal sustainability and governability.  In our practice, sustainable urban design, inclusion, management for local and regional development, and environmental management and research converge to create transversal solutions. This transparent, thoughtful, and rigorous design process ensures integral development strategies in which diversity, inclusiveness and commitment contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.  

FOCUS

URBAN DESIGN

We believe that urban design has the power to transform the lives of our communities. Our goal is to integrate the important links between the environmental, urban, and fiscal sustainability dimensions. In this way, sustainable and transversal solutions can address complex problems through creativity and innovation by obtaining a holistic view of the needs and context of our communities and territories.

“Cities have the capability of
providing something for everybody,
only because, and only when,
they are created by everybody.”
