Conceptual City Planning and Urban Design

After major damage in Benghazi during the country’s recent civil war, Lead Engineering prepared a conceptual Vision Plan for the city’s future. The Plan assessed major damage on private/public buildings, road and utility networks and proposed a framework for future planning as well as proposing a series of action projects. It laid out a road map highlighting the coastal city’s historic features through relevant studies in the process of becoming a modern Middle Eastern metropolis and included basic proposals for the incorporation of the unauthorised housing areas, economic growth, the advancement of tourist developments and environmental protection.
