Course Overview

Creating place should be a critical consideration in any development. Done well it adds layers of interest and vitality to a project, produces healthy outcomes for users and residents, and creates a commercial edge in the marketplace. For developers, this distinguishes individual developments from competitors and translates to higher price points. It also enhances an organisation’ reputation.
