Urbis has one simple goal – to shape cities and communities of Australia for a better future. The purpose, which was first articulated in 2016 encapsulates the vision of the business and its people. The company has enjoyed solid revenue and client growth in the intervening years, growing to more than 600 cityshapers across from 8 offices across Australia and Asia via its international business Cistri. They are big-small company or a small-big company which is testament to their growing reputation.
The shape of cities and the way communities live have been touched by Urbis in some way. Through a unique combination of urban planning, design, evidence-backed insights, they envision, design, develop and improve the places and cities in which we love, work and play.
They have enjoyed much success but do not want to sit on their laurels. Strengthening their market orientation and maximising their market impact is key to the next stage of our growth.
