Urban Renewal

Urban renewal projects effectively reuse former development sites to cater for the needs of a growing population, whilst leveraging the existing infrastructure. Verve Projects has successfully provided our services to a range of urban renewal sites of varying degrees of complexity. As planning authorities in major cities continue to encourage urban renewal projects, Verve Projects is an exceptional partner to deliver them.

The team at Verve Projects work with multi-disciplinary teams to achieve innovative design solutions that provide confidence to stakeholders and efficient outcomes for clients. This is extremely critical, especially for urban renewal projects.

Ultimately, these outcomes shape the great places for the communities Verve Projects stand for. We work with Principal Architects and Urban Designers who typically lead these projects, becoming their trusted engineering partners who inform the infrastructure needs in a manner sympathetic to the overall vision. Our in-depth understanding and experience in the built form and public realm is a key contribution to our success in servicing our clients. 

Our very first project in 2001 was at NewQuay in Melbourne’s Docklands for MAB Corporation. Since then, we have injected our expertise into many more projects across Melbourne, these include:
