About  Us


Long story short

Situate is a boutique firm based in Edmonton, offering integrated strategic and municipal planning and project support services to community-minded builders, developers and not-for-profits.

Here’s the important thing: we don’t use templates and we don’t believe in copy-and-paste solutions. We’ll engage tirelessly with your team to co-create projects that live and breathe in the real world, rather than gathering dust on a bookshelf.
