SMART DISTRICTS & COMMUNITIES

SERVICES AND SOLUTIONS FOR DISTRICTS AND COMMUNITIES

Transform your district with a smart digital masterplan that identifies smart solutions, intelligent systems and digital services that improve competitiveness, efficiency, sustainability and quality of life for your residents.

Smart city solutions and technologies are transforming districts and communities to make them more efficient and sustainable, whilst helping them to differentiate their offerings. NXN Smart Districts and Communities master planning helps you to identify the strategies, digital solutions and services that your district or community needs to achieve its strategic goals, improve the quality of life, and attract new residents, businesses and investors.

NXN’s Smart District/ Community master planning methodology, coupled with our in-depth understanding of city and district challenges, regional nuances, and digital and smart solutions allow us to develop grounded and feasible planning that helps you realise your goals.

Challenging times for district developers and operators

Developers and operators must today design, build and operate districts and communities to meet rising expectations of residents for higher quality and standard of living, but at a price they can afford. This must also be done within the context of the wider city environment.

Developers and operators need to leverage city resources and strengths effectively, aligning them with district and community strategies, while addressing limitations and challenges such as infrastructure, resources, traffic congestion and pollution. Many are rising to the challenge by recognising that districts and communities are an integral part of the city and must work closely with city governments to achieve mutual goals.

Moving towards a smart urban ecosystems

Digital transformation and digitisation are allowing districts and communities to adopt new business models, differentiate themselves and become more competitive and sustainable. A new generation of smart digital services help developers and operators reduce cost, make better decisions, operate more efficiently while saving money and generating additional revenue.

District and community developers and operators now are becoming much more than simply real-estate developers, expanding their role and services offerings to provide and facilitate healthy and holistic life styles, and improve the experience of their residents and visitors.

NXN Smart District Masterplanning

NXN has developed a Smart District master planning methodology to address the diverse needs of district and community developers and operators. It is a methodology that has been refined over the past decade, as a result of engagements with some of the most ambitious Smart City and Smart District projects in the world.

Our smart district master planning service helps district and community developers and operators define and prioritise their digital initiatives and services, outline their digitalisation roadmap, realise the value of district data and define the right future architecture for a smart and digital district.

We can help you develop a blueprint and plan of action that addresses your district’s or community’s challenges and achieves your goals.

The Smart District Framework

NXN’s holistic planning process ensures that the resulting Smart District masterplans take into account the key dimensions for life and services in most districts: Smart Living, Smart Mobility Smart Environment, Smart Economy (especially important for mixed-use districts and industrial/special economic zones), and Smart Governance/Administration/Operations.

Putting stakeholders at the centre

Our Smart District planning is rooted in strategy with technology being an enabler of the strategy rather than a goal in of itself. Our advisory philosophy reflects this by placing the stakeholder experience at the centre of the planning cycle, linked to the ultimate goals of the plan.

Data Practice Advisory Services

NXN’s data advisory services help enable your district’s journey towards becoming a data-driven Smart District with action-oriented reporting and insights at your fingertips. We help align district entities and operations around a single version of the truth, and provide a data framework for easy, automated information sharing and collaboration. This brings new synergies and opportunities for the various district stakeholders.

Data is a key component of any city and district and the foundation for successful digital transformations.  When used correctly, technology can offer data insights beyond those that can be created manually. District operators, residents and other stakeholders can gain invaluable intelligence into a district’s efficiency, constituents, operations, services and more.
