Our mission:
better buildings, cities, and environments

UrbanForm was built by architects, engineers, and planners to provide instant, easy access to what was one of the most complex, confusing, and inaccessible aspects of building design and development—the zoning.

 

Skip the government websites, the map and document search, text interpretation, reference cross-checking, CAD drafting, copy-pasting, and phone calls to the building department.

 

Just use UrbanForm and get your project started right away with all the info you need. 

Product

Focus on designing, problem-solving, and consensus-building, not on zoning research

  • Win projects by responding instantly and knowledgeably to client inquiries

  • Focus work on design thinking and problem-solving

  • Avoid errors and omissions that can jeopardize projects and client relationships

How UrbanForm works

UrbanForm manages the process of sourcing, parsing, calculating, and documenting the relevant zoning regulations and building information—replacing a hodgepodge of manual and analog processes with one click. 

Our AI technology, in conjunction with professional analysts, create our datasets to serve the professionals who depend on accurate zoning information. 

Automatically generated, clickable links to the source documents save hours of sourcing, reading, cross-referencing, and documenting, allowing easy verification and deeper research.

Accurate zoning information, instantly available, to facilitate development, design, and construction work

Every single construction project in the US requires accurate zoning information: for project development and feasibility, architecture and design, and permitting and compliance.

 

Previously, this information required hours-to-weeks worth of document discovery, interpretation, reference-checks, and CAD drafting. Now, with UrbanForm, this same information can be obtained instantly.

 

This allows the people who build our buildings and cities to get started faster, manage their projects better, spend less time reading arcane documents, and think more creatively about the future of our built environment.
