REGENERATIVE CITY STRATEGY

We help communities envision bold regenerative goals and provide strategic support on how they can be achieved. Our Regenerative City Standard (RCS) is a pioneering guide that provides the vision and goals of net positive urban development, while our REVA (Regenerative Value Assessment) platform benchmarks and assesses a community’s unique urban systems challenges and regenerative potential.

REGENERATIVE CITY DESIGN

We design regenerative district infrastructure systems that power resource abundant, resilient, and equitable urban developments. Our Integrated Utility Hub (IUH) serves as a community’s metabolic engine by transforming waste into renewable assets, while our Integrated Utility System (IUS) and coordinated biophilic infrastructure solutions expand regenerative city capacities and qualities of place.

FEATURED PROJECT

Regenerative City Assessment & Grid Design for San Francisco. Regensia’s Joshua Foss was contracted to lead a study that helped define RU for San Francisco and outline the emerging approach’s robust value proposition. The study utilized Regensia’s REVA platform to benchmark and evaluate the regenerative potential of SF’s Central SoMa district, and introduced innovative design strategies – including an Integrated Utility Hub and System (IUH/S) – that would enable the district to become fully regenerative.
