Urban planning services enhanced by an experienced multidisciplinary team.

Composed of about fifteen civil engineers, urban planners and technicians, FNX-INNOV has a multidisciplinary team that specializes in assisting real estate promoters in the realization of their development projects.

Thanks to its multidisciplinary approach, supervised by urban planners, FNX-INNOV is able to implement urban planning projects that are well thought out, designed and executed in an integrated manner. In addition to offering traditional urban planning services, these experts focus on project management and team coordination. What differentiates FNX-INNOV from many of its competitors is that they offer all the services necessary for the management of real estate projects in Quebec, with the result of greater efficiency.

These planning professionals assist clients in the development of their properties and ensure that the project’s development concept considers all the issues. For example, by making sure to consider the topography, the natural environment, the nature of the soil, the relevant regulations, the development guidelines and principles, the infrastructure capacity, the stormwater management, etc.

In addition to proposing regulatory strategies, project managers coordinate the approval process for the project with the City, sometimes the MRC or the Ministry. For example, by developing the argument presenting the project to the CCU and the municipal council, by filing applications for construction or subdivision permits or by answering questions from officials. The project management carried out with the promoters by the team ensures the implementation of a common thread for the various stages of the project, including coordination for public utilities, building design and landscape architecture.

What is an urban planner at FNX-INNOV?

Urban planning is a discipline that consists in organizing and developing urban spaces. It is about finding a balance between the well-being of inhabitants, economic dynamics, urban densification, improvement of social relations and preservation of the environment. The urban planner is a key professional in land use planning, whose work is based on a multidisciplinary approach.

Specifically, the Urban Planner:

  • Participates in the planning and design of real estate developments and develops comprehensive plans, development concepts, and subdivision projects as assigned
  • Conducts regulatory and compliance analyses and proposes approval strategies
  • Designs and conducts studies on various mandates (data collection, information analysis, report writing, planning and verification of cartographic renderings)
  • Prepares presentation documents for the municipal approval process (PIIA, PPCMOI, minor variance, zoning change, etc.)

A multidisciplinary service that allows for greater efficiency

Conducting a real estate development project at FNX-INNOV with the involvement of urban planners from the outset shortens the time leading up to the start of construction.

    • The design is integrated: no issue affecting the feasibility of the concept is left aside along the way, thus minimizing backtracking.
    • Project phases are carried out simultaneously when possible and one after the other when required: the project is not waiting for the next responsible stakeholder to pick up the ball.
    • The project moves quickly through the City: the approval process is well defined thanks to the relationship established with the officials in charge, it follows its course quickly, because the filings are complete and on time and no questions are left unanswered.

“Working with our urban planners upstream of the projects allows us to better integrate the urban planning issues of the developments into the engineering concept and vice versa. This approach greatly helps to save costs for clients and optimize projects.”
