The worldwide trend of increased urbanisation demands further developments in planning of large scale communities. The expectation for technologically sophisticated, dynamic, efficient but at the same time practical, secure and inviting urban centres gives rise to the Smart City concept.

The teams at Meinhardt have the knowledge and expertise to be involved from the early stages in the planning, evaluation and design of Smart Cities. We utilise integrated IT/Communication platforms with the capability for high level interface with the various urban systems. We provide detailed urban planning supported by infrastructure master plan, large scale energy plants and distribution system using the latest developments in green technology and smart grid design.

Our teams carefully evaluate symbiotic relationships between the various urban activities to assess and capitalise recycling, waste to energy and other environmentally sustainable opportunities. We design high technology IT infrastructure to provide wide ranging opportunities for interconnectivity between the various urban activities including finance, education, health, research, manufacturing, transport and entertainment. We also provide high technology/non-intrusive security design including concept and methodology as well as detailed implementation.
