To compliment and enhance our technical offerings in Transportation Planning, Transit Planning, Parking Planning and Traffic Engineering we also offer significant experience in the following areas:
Expert Witness Testimony:
A sound decision-making process for land use developments and transportation projects requires that decision makers are well informed of the range of different alternatives and their implications. In forums such as Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) hearings, the testimony of transportation experts is often critical to the outcome of the proceedings.
Our transportation planners believe that the planning process is just as important as the recommendations themselves in developing practical solutions that also achieve community and political support.
Over the last decade spatially-based data has become more mainstream in all aspects of transportation planning and traffic engineering. Our philosophy with respect to technology allows us to make use of GIS information and tools in many unique and varied forms.
Transportation Noise Assessments:
Traffic noise is recognized world wide as contributing to the general deterioration of the urban environment. As a result of increasing traffic volumes and higher levels of noise, public concerns have led to the establishment of standards, guidelines and procedures to address and mitigate noise impacts in the land use and transportation planning processes.
Paradigm recognizes that our clients must meet the challenge of achieving "more with less". Constrained budgets and staff resources frequently create periods where in-house resources are unable to respond quickly and adequately to public or political issues.
