Smart Cities

People have a growing need for sustainable, resilient and appealing urban environments, and smart cities are meeting the demand. In a smart city, advanced technologies are leveraged to improve the quality of life for citizens, enhance economic development, and optimize the use of land resources. The good news is that the engineering community is now equipped to reinvent urban landscapes and help communities benefit from these advanced technologies.

Smart cities require robust and reliable infrastructure, including high-speed connectivity and energy-efficient buildings. Many cities may need to upgrade their existing infrastructure to support smart city initiatives. Technology is also a significant issue: smart cities rely heavily on advanced technologies, including sensors, data analytics and devices for connectivity. Implementing and managing these technologies requires extensive expertise and resources.

Our teams play a critical role in the design, implementation and maintenance of smart city infrastructure. They are involved in developing innovative solutions for a range of urban challenges, such as traffic congestion, air quality, GHG reduction, decarbonization and energy consumption.

Comprised of engineers and multidisciplinary specialists, our teams can address several key components of smart city projects, including:

  • Geographic information systems (snow and sidewalk de-icing management)
  • Asset management (municipal infrastructure and inventory)
  • Smart grids
  • Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
  • Smart buildings
  • Smart infrastructure (instrumentation for water supply, stormwater management, etc.)
  • Environment
  • Mobility
  • Traffic management and control
  • Smart transportation
