The framework agreement with the Centre of Urban Development (BCU) and Københavns Ejendomme og Indkøb (KEID) lets COWI contribute at a very early stage – before local planning processes commence and well before construction and building works kick off. In this way, COWI's knowledge is utilised to the full.
”We’ve set a strong expert team, which previously assisted the City of Copenhagen in realising other assignments related to the development of the city’s buildings and areas. We bring very deep and broad technical competencies to the table, and urban development is an interdisciplinary process that calls for the multidisciplinary approach and 360-degree mindset that characterise how we work,” says Karin Thuesen Pedersen.
COWI will stand surety for obtaining the necessary knowledge about, e.g., supply need and geotechnical conditions, and for developing a framework that safeguards sustainable and well thought out development to make sure that Copenhagen remains one of the best cities in the world to live and travel in.
