Urban Equation knows how to bring innovation in sustainable development to market. We were founded 15 years ago by Windmill Development to execute a big vision. Windmill transforms conventional development practices with a built-in approach that creates opportunity for profit, people and the planet.
Urban Equation is a vehicle to share this knowledge and experience. Urban Equation provides a needed body of expertise to the industry. Our first project, Dockside Green in British Columbia, set an international benchmark and proved that community building did not have to come at the expense of the environment or economics. Sustainable development is an evolving sector – we are leading this transition.
We develop sustainability frameworks that allow developers to work more efficiently with city planners for approvals. We stay on top of changes to building codes, standards and certifications so you don’t have to. We support governments to achieve the long-term change they envision for their communities. And we operate in the spirit of openness and collaboration to achieve exponential impact. Urban Equation’s unique understanding of the complexities of development and complexities of designing sustainable communities provides clients with a level of knowledge unparalleled in the marketplace. There is simply no other consultant like us.
There is an immediate need to change how we build. We help our clients achieve transformative sustainable developments by navigating complexities, streamlining opportunities, and striving for cost-beneficial solutions. We understand and can apply the business case needed for this change because we have been developers and we have worked with governments across the country. Deeply rooted in transforming traditional development to deliver environmental sustainability.
