We all want good neighbors, but it is hard to know how to be the kind of neighbor our neighbors want.
The Four Pillars
After acquiring a new plot and entering a new location even Skanska becomes a neighbor for the existing inhabitants. That‘s why we think about how to succeed in this role in the long turn. And so we have built our principles of a good neighborhood on the following four pillars.
We work with experts
Petr Klápště, town planner and specialist in projects and planning through public participation
„Through participative planning we are trying to change the typical project negotiation procedure, which is unpleasant for residents, developers and architects. Even before we start designing a project, we map out the needs of local residents and their view of the place – its pluses and minuses. Architects work with these results from the start and look for solutions to meet the needs of inhabitants and the other demands made on the project. When the design versions are ready, we focus on more detailed and structured feedback at participative meetings. We do not make a final selection with the lay public, but we evaluate in detail the specific pluses and minuses of all of the proposed versions of the project, and then we use this evaluation as the foundation for creating the final draft.“
Vlastník areálu Michelských pekáren, společnost Skanska Reality, začala s přípravou návrhu budoucí zástavby. Díky dohodě mezi vlastníkem a městskou částí o participaci veřejnosti tak občané mohli ovlivnit developerský projekt ještě dříve, než architekti nakreslili první čáru.
