Laura Toups, P.E., LEED AP, is Managing Partner of Urban Design Group and has been involved in land development projects in Austin since 1983. She has over 29 years experience in the civil engineering and urban design field. During her career, Ms. Toups has combined her understanding of engineering and development issues with an interest in City policies and regulations. This has facilitated the development of a collaborative vision of master planning and urban design. Her approach to master planning and urban design projects is to collaborate with planners, architects and landscape architects to explore creative solutions to site divil improvements and to incorporate the elements and policies required to ultimately permit and construct sustainable projects.
Specific to urban design projects, a considerable amount of coordination is required, not only within the design team, but with other utilities, projects and City departments. Having served as project manager for numerous large-scale phased projects, Ms. Toups brings the experience to successfully work with multi-discipline design teams and stakeholder groups. Project experience includes:
