We Are the Ecala Group
Providing systems-based solutions for integrated, circular, and net positive city development
The Ecala Approach: Restorative Development
Society faces an exponentially expanding set of ‘wicked’ challenges – rapid urbanization, resource insecurity, climate volatility, deteriorating infrastructure, and socio-economic instability. Community leaders often lack the time, capital, tools, and partnerships to address these challenges systematically. As a result, issues are dealt with in a reactive and patchwork manner, generating a downward spiral of deteriorating performance, capacity, and resilience.
Ecala helps cities overcome these challenges. Our core skill, value, and function is systems-based innovation for restorative city development. We provide a robust set of solutions that make restorative development clear, compelling, and actionable. Our Integrated Utility Hub (IUH) and Integrated Utility System (IUS) designs are high-performance district-scaled Grid Solutions that integrate a range of traditionally separate utility functions to enhance resource security, resilience, and standards of living while reducing systems-wide costs. Supporting our grid solutions is Ecala Insights, a robust planning platform that helps cities assess their current urban systems challenges, while preparing strategic implementation roadmaps that guide them to a future state of integrated, circular, and restorative success.
