  • Airports & Airports Cities

    Airports are strategic infrastructure, as well as very complex machines. MIC has worked on several major airports around the world, focusing mostly on the airport land side, looking at the wide area (how an airport can connect to the territory) and at the land side configuration (road, rail and metro connectivity).

    MIC has worked on several airport cities on an Airport Master Plan scale, looking at the road network, public transport and station location, as well as the parking configuration and cargo area. MIC has also been involved in several agent-based micro modelling simulations within airport terminals in order to explore the best terminal configuration.

  • Digital Mobility

    Transport and urban quality are strictly interrelated, the latter being a fundamental element of a liveable and human centred environment. As a fundamental part of its project approach, MIC promotes the implementation of innovative and alternative transport solutions that contribute to creating a new and better way of living the urban space.

    When considering mobility and transport, the strategy, systems and technology all have a role in providing traditional connectivity, but they can also create a totally new layer of communication, actually changing the way transport users perceive the space and therefore the travel experience.

    The continuous research and application of innovative solutions to solve different transport issues and provide a completely new level of efficiency and customization to mobility is one of the fundamental characteristics that has made MIC an internationally recognized firm, consultant to many well-known architectural firms and developers worldwide.

  • Hospitals

    Hospitals are complex buildings where complex activities take place, and where mobility – although a key component of the hospital operation – is sometimes inadequately evaluated.

    MIC has worked on hospital accessibility all over the world, from complex hospital districts to single large buildings.

    MIC’s activities focus on surface transport, pedestrian connectivity, car access and valet service, as well as parking layout, logistics and emergency access.

  • New Foundation Cities

    New foundation cities are probably the dream of every urban planner. To design a city from scratch, testing new urban paradigms, confronting the great examples of ancient cities, is clearly an extraordinary challenge. It is even more challenging from a mobility perspective. The need to balance traditional infrastructural solutions with long-term visions of innovative mobility makes this particular task an extraordinary foresight of a better urban future.

    MIC has extensive experience in new foundation cities and supports masterplanners in all aspects of mobility, dealing with traditional systems (public and private infrastructures, for example) as well as innovative and smart solutions. Our expertise also facilitates the masterplanners in defining the correct land use mix and density, thanks to our advanced scientific approach to accessibility analysis and the Transit Oriented Development application.

  • Office Business Parks

    Delivering appropriate and sustainable accessibility to Office and Business Parks is very important for the marketability of developments across all scales of development.

    There is a lot more to accessibility than just making room for car-parking requirements. Successful consultancy addresses the entire journey that future employees will make from end to end in order to prepare spot-on, contemporary and context fitting solutions that ensure easy access to developments. Sustainability is not only an environmental concept; it has much to do with mobility, too.

    Have you ever considered saving 50% of the capital cost of your parking structure by simply delivering half the parking provision you thought necessary? We can support your case and demonstrate that what suits your development is also the right thing for your community. Less parking means less traffic and more liveable space.

    The services that we provide to our clients range from strategic advisory to quantitative performance assessments, travel demand management and behavioural analysis, from parking design to traffic engineering design. Our unique skills in pedestrian modelling also enable footfall analysis and tailored public realm design.

  • Public Realm

    The design of streetscapes and public spaces is, in many cases, the direct consequence of the planning process. Starting from the belief that the design of streets in urban environments must be more than just an engineering exercise, MIC looks at streetscapes using a holistic approach that considers all components of urban mobility flows.

    From feasibility studies to detailed design and construction documents, MIC has all the capabilities for handling complex public realm schemes. From single nodes, like public squares, to complex series of streets and open spaces, MIC is providing world-class design solutions for a safe and rich environment. MIC also has considerable experience of working in close synergy with landscape designers and utilities consultants, achieving excellent results.

  • Public Transport Infrastructure

    Starting from a general understanding of the broader framework, Mobility In Chain proposes strategies crafted for each specific context. Supported by modelling tools, we carefully study the urban transport environment to make an informed decision on aligning and locating metro lines and stations. In this field, MIC’s advantage is its holistic approach that derives from a clear understanding of how the public transport network works as a whole.

    Our competence has developed working on wide scale and masterplan scale projects where the estimation of trip generation associated to land use or significant urban redevelopment becomes a key element in infrastructure definition.

  • Special Attractors

    Mobility for special attractors and events is extraordinarily important. Special attractors generate vast amounts of people in a very limited time and, for this reason, they cannot be handled by the normal transport infrastructure.

    Hence, MIC has often been involved in event related studies, looking extensively, for instance, at Milan Expo where MIC performed several pedestrian studies for a number of pavilions. Through various modelling software and a clear understanding of the needs of special attractors, MIC can deliver strong support to any public body or institution looking at how to manage special attractors and events.

  • Tourism

    Hospitality and tourism development represent great challenges in mobility planning. Accessibility is key to any kind of development; however, it is even more central and strategic when we talk about hospitality. A successful access strategy makes the development attractive to all manner of tourists; conversely, a destination that is difficult to reach and problematic to explore instantly becomes a place people will avoid visiting. For this reason, especially in wide scale hospitality, the accessibility strategy is fundamental.

    Our approach is based on the need to create user 'choices', offering alternatives to the private car through innovative and sustainable solutions. A correct parking strategy is fundamental for achieving a balanced strategy, as well as creating alternative means of soft mobility to enlarge the walking distance, which is often restricted to a minimum in places where weather conditions are harsh. A blend of transport solutions and great public spaces is the ultimate aim of our activities.

  • Transit Nodes

    MIC’s expertise also extends to complex interchange hubs, which often envisage a retail component or other alternative land use. In this case, it is of paramount importance to unlock the potential of the surrounding land use with the double aim of capitalizing on the new facility’s potentials in terms of accessibility and footfalls.

    Usually acting as a big attractor or gateway, a transport hub requires special attention regarding its accessibility (in particular pedestrian flow), and the internal circulation and layout, as well as its relation and impact on the existing context.

  • Transport Plans Studies

    While new technologies are rapidly changing the way people go about their business and big data suggests new ways of learning about people’s habits, (hence, travel behaviour), we must not forget that it still requires a significant amount of time to deploy real infrastructures to satisfy the increasing demand for mobility.

    While knowing facts about the present has become immediate, the deployment of infrastructures and the enforcement of policies can outlive the validity of the scenarios they were conceived for. In our view, this means that transport planning still requires a rigorous process and the application of methods that allow a correlation between travel choices for the profiling of society. This is the only way to create decision-making tools capable of accommodating the rapid changes of society and generate plans that are always contemporary and up-to-date.

    MIC has deployed several studies and plans for cities, provinces and regions in various countries and has proactively worked in multi-disciplinary teams as transport consultant. Over the past decade, MIC has developed strategies, policies and implementation plans to turn ideas into practical actions that administrations can enforce.
