Urban Edge Planning is at the top of the game. They ask their team members to make quality their sole focus.

Urban Edge's focus is on delivering work to the highest standard possible, however they have a relaxed feel and are well rehearsed at striking a balance between driving results, encouraging professional development, and social fun. They are agile and set up to support work from home. The team regularly has a social get-togethers - their Xmas party was at one of NZ's top restaurants, and last year's in-house cooking competition was a highlight and a whole lot of fun.
