RCDC is a collective driven by long-term social, economic and environmental impact values. RCDC provide a wide-range of built environment design, planning, implementation services, management systems and economic model design and programme development services to create innovative resilient civic developments.

We believe that too often the development of land does not effectively address long-term social and environmental needs as well as being economically sustainable.

RCDC is anchored by research based design and inclusivity. RCDC’s core team facilitates innovative developments via a continuous co-creation process with the very people who will use the developments. A priority of RCDC is capacity-building.

Every part of what RCDC do is underpinned by the principles of upliftment - promoting agency and advancing the skills of the people throughout the life of developments, creating places that are environmentally sustainable.

RCDC’s core management team, based in South Africa and Switzerland, recruits highly skilled and experienced service providers - who subscribe to the collective’s values - on a project by project basis. In this way we build long-term working relationships with proven partners.

RCDC offers consultancy services and provides opportunities for Impact Investment, Corporate Social Investment and grant funding.
