Insights into building High Performance Streets

September 17, 2019

This has been one of the hottest summers of the decade - outside and inside our Studio! As many of you know we reached record temperatures all over the world which is a reminder to think about the green spaces in our neighborhoods. As Street Designers, we maximize the benefit of our streets and public spaces - which includes improving the environment. Now more than ever, it is critical to push for High Performance, Complete and Green Streets. Take a look at this New Jersey Future article to lear...

Have you started taking advantage of the amazing summer weather? Because we certainly have! While you were busy making a checklist for your summer activities, we had our own type of summer checklist in the office and we can safely say we checked off all our items in our list: New projects? Check. Deliverables? Check. Awards? Check! Field trip?... Yes, check that one off too!

April showers bring May flowers! Isn’t this a great analogy for our industry? I mean think about it, when we are working on a project - whether it is during the planning, design, or the implementation - there will be rain, new deadlines, and other situations that crop up. But that doesn’t mean those situations are all that bad! That rain helps nurture the new landscapes we create; and those deadlines help us figure out better and more efficient ways to get to the goal line. Here are few projects...

Spring breathes new life into the world around us - and that gives us a rush of inspiration! We start to see people coming out of hibernation and spending more time outside.  People, flowers, birds ... our streets and plazas become full of life.   Now is a great time to study your public spaces and how people begin using them again.  Are people drawn to your streets? 

To some of us, the start of Spring means one thing…..Construction Season!  The ground starts to defrost … and Step...

The shortest month of the year meant we had to gear up even faster! With the construction season coming quickly, this month we have projects entering all three steps of our HPSP (High Performance Street Process). If you aren’t familiar with Arterial’s HPSP, this is a great time for us to showcase it. The HPSP takes complex high-performance streets projects from pen and paper to bricks and mortar in three clear and actionable steps.

It’s a new year and it is time to ramp things up once again! By now we’ve all forgotten about our New Year’s resolutions - but we are focussed on starting the year strong and we hope you are too.  Here’s a few things we have to look forward to:

  • HPSP Step 3* - Implementation: Atlantic Avenue Streetscape, Ventnor City

The 3-block streetscape renovation of the North Beach commercial district in Ventnor City, NJ, has broken ground! This streetscape project will promote the local economy, and in...

The months of November and December are definitely the time to be thankful. Not everyday you get to thank those around you for what they do, but it is important to take some time and practice gratitude. At Arterial, we are more than grateful for what we have and especially for those we have the pleasure to work with. That is why we would like to dedicate this month’s blog post to thank everyone that has been part of our journey this year. 
 

So at the risk of sounding like a Oscar Award acceptanc...

Fun costumes, decorations in front yards, and trick or treating! That is what people think of during October. But not a lot of people think of how streets should look and function for this special occasion of the year. As Urban Designers, we always need to learn and think of new ways to design streets, not only to offer an aesthetically pleasant space, but also to offer a safe environment for our children during this season. So let the children go out trick or treating without any worries! It is...

The Fall season is here! It’s starting to get chilly, the leaves are turning orange (probably our favorite color…), and it is the best time to spend some time out enjoying warm drinks and just making full use of what streets have to offer! We are excited to share with you what happened this month at Arterial, so before you go out and enjoy your favorite public spaces, check our highlights for the month of September:

We are always excited to see our projects brea...

As winds down, August was the month to ramp up at Arterial! The lull of late summer was a great way to advance some of the projects we have in development, and we were not going to miss the chance to push harder. The August rains were perfect for a few of our projects (making lemonade out of lemons)  - keep reading to find out how!
