The County of Huron is seeking the services of an urban design/architectural firm to complete a Residential Intensification Guideline which will be applied across the County.

Design considerations will focus on enhancing compatibility within neighbourhood context through:

  • building placement;
  • architecture (style, treatment of architectural features such as entrances and garages, scale, massing, transition, materials and articulation, etc.);
  • microclimates (shade, wind, etc);
  • outdoor amenity areas;
  • landscaping;
  • responses to street design;
  • parking, driveways, and garages; and
  • other (lighting, waste receptacles, utilities, etc).

Design considerations will be prepared with the following lenses applied:

  • climate ready development (e.g. passive solar design, stormwater management);
  • age-friendly and inclusive options (e.g. visitable unit design); and
  • affordability (e.g. quality design without premium materials).

For more information, please see the full RFQ document attached in the Resources section below.
