Cities and planning

Our work in smart cities and masterplanning investigates the role of digital technology in cities and urban developments. We look at how it can optimise the operation of cities and enable sustainable behaviour by citizens.

Our technology in sport services are helping to create stadiums of the future including the Singapore Sports Hub – the largest sports infrastructure public-private partnership in the world. Our consultants also work with organisations such as the London Legacy Development Corporation to ensure that major events such as the London Olympics 2012 can be a catalyst for positive and long-lasting benefits that go far beyond the initial spectacle.


Our expertise in transport allows us to provide market-leading technology services to aviation, rail, highways and maritime organisations. Services such as our real-time aviation and digital railway offerings are specifically designed to meet your operational and customer needs. Our consultants work on a range of assignments to enable your ambitions through technology. We’ve enabled innovation in areas such as operational and passenger processing, airport and baggage IT, and rail telecoms.

We provide smart mobility advisory services that can revitalise transport networks, improve mobility for users, and create seamless and efficient travel experiences. We can provide everything from research and consultancy services, as we did for the UK Government’s Traffic Management Technology Framework, to help with upgrading urban traffic signal systems in Limerick City. Our work on the oneTRANSPORT project aims to lay the foundations for smarter transport networks around the world by using Internet of Things (IoT) technology.
