Our space in the city.
The CivicWorks Studio is like our own small city. We are a diverse team of multi-disciplinary innovators and committed urbanists, all working together on a like-minded vision: spaces and places that work better for more people.
Urban minded. Forward thinking.
Planning & Urban Design
We focus on growing our main streets, supporting transit-oriented development, advocating for greater housing choice, and other city-building efforts aimed at making communities more livable for all.
Communications & Engagement
We value connecting with the communities in which we work. We communicate openly and constructively, sharing our vision for a brighter future by inviting more folks to the table and making the complex plain
Bridging the gap between information design, branding, and the real-world environment, we help visionary clients capture attention, tell stories, and connect people to projects in emotionally resonant ways.
We foster and support a more vibrant, resilient, and equitable Calgary through Studio-led urban initiatives, professional volunteerism, and industry advocacy.
