Intensification in Ottawa's Neighbourhoods (ION) is a prototype that demonstrates the power of Geospatial Modeling, Predictive Development Analyses, and Form Based Zoning. The study area includes all low-rise neighbourhoods inside the greenbelt in Ottawa.
The Scorecard is a visually accessible tool that allows our team to communicate efficiently and effectively with clients and to quickly compare options and ideas measured against our client's set targets.
The City of Ottawa undertook a review of their low-rise multi-unit zoning regulations, and hired our team to provide architectural building design and site assessment services. We provided the framework for a new approach, applying Form Based Zoning tools to reverse engineer zoning to achieve desired infill.
Walkable Ottawa aims to develop concrete solutions and a clear vision to transition Ottawa's neighbourhoods to more walkable communities. RJH has played a key role over the past 2 years; sharing technical analyses, preparing educational videos, and hosting tutorials.
