Our services

Urbanism Next doesn't work in isolation. If you want to collaborate with us, you're in the right place.

Work with us!

Urbanism Next regularly works with communities to understand the impacts of emerging technologies on land use, urban design, building design, transportation, and real estate and the implications of these impacts on equity, health and safety, the economy, and the environment. We help communities develop a policy framework and strategies to use these technologies to achieve community goals. Urbanism Next can work with your organization or community to help you understand how to think about these changes, mitigate the risks, and take advantage of the opportunities. 

Below are only a few examples of how we can help you apply the lessons of research to improving communities. Contact us with inquires on how we can we partner with you.
