Broadway Malyan worked with a range of partners to deliver the PDGML including local partner Urbinveste, infrastructure experts Aurecon, transport consultancy Mobility in Chain, Strategists Deloitte and environmental/ social advisors UNL. Fellow director and masterplanner Monika Bik said the project was an exemplar in collaboration, be that with the client, its project partners or the people of Luanda.
She said: “Successful masterplanners immerse themselves in the city so that they can truly understand how it works, its issues and the people that live there. For this project it was important for us to go much deeper than any other previous project so that we could deliver a plan that truly responded to the needs and aspirations of Luanda’s residents.
“We discovered an incredibly exciting city with a rich and proud heritage, a dynamic and aspirational population and a government determined to create a better future for its citizens –hopefully our book has captured some of this fantastic journey we have been on delivering the project over the past years.”
