Welcome to CDM Smith.

Social Infrastructure Planning

Social infrastructure is a range of important facilities used by communities to meet learn and access services.

These facilities include community meeting rooms, community centres, libraries, early learning services and schools, youth centres, cultural facilities, and sport and recreation facilities such as aquatic centres, sports ovals and fields, indoor courts etc.

Our team are specialists in social infrastructure planning, particularly with developing and applying benchmarks for provision, including the pioneering and leading work in this field in Queensland, a methodology that is now used nationally. We also partner with architects and others to develop new models for delivery of social infrastructure that is highly adaptable and can deliver multiple revenue streams.

CDM Smith team members have worked on social infrastructure strategies around Australia, from small mining towns to inner city renewal precincts, from Townsville to Melbourne, and from small redevelopment sites to large local government areas.
