DPI Territorial is a consulting practice with offices in Vancouver and Guadalajara. DPI provides environmental, land use and climate change planning services, as well as urban design and landscape architecture for rural and urban areas. Our clients include municipal, provincial and federal government, indigenous communities, academic institutions, non-governmental and non-profit organizations. Our professional services include:
Community engagement: DPI builds lasting working relationships. We facilitate engagement and work with stakeholders and decision-makers throughout all phases of collaborative planning and co-design processes. This serves to improve dialogue, the integration of diverse ideas, and can improve the public acceptability of proposed solutions.
Designing and planning communities: Ranging in scale from designing individual sites and neighbourhoods to to regional land use planning, DPI can assess trade-offs between future scenarios and optimize land use to satisfy multiple goals such as resource development, traditional use and environmental health. We conduct thorough research and field work, make innovative design and planning recommendations based on science and stakeholder input, and develop effective policies for resolving local challenges.
Mapping and environmental impact assessment: DPI can provide state-of-the-art spatial and 3D computer modeling for assessing land use suitability, environmental impacts, landcover change, patterns of indigenous land use, future development scenarios and development trajectories. We also provide advanced cartography, GIS analytics, and decision-support using complex spatial analysis, visualizations and photo-real visual simulations.
