Master planning consultancy

We believe that any investors or owners contemplating capital investment in a specific site should develop a clear master plan which justifies the investment,lays the foundation for future investment and sets out how this is to be achieved. It should be a working document which is used and modified as functions, objectives and other parameters change.

Our approach is to achieve four main objectives:

  • Align the site with a clear strategy based on the feasibility study and justification for capital investment which clearly highlights the benefits to the business
  • Thoroughly assess the gaps with the current site and its readiness to achieve the objectives set out by its management team
  • Set out a phased capital investment over an agreed time period with cash flow and risk analysis which is clearly presented
  • Provide a hotel/resort brief to the architect and work towards a conclusion of the master plan

There are three phases to reach the objectives:

  • Strategic intent and gap analysis
  • Thoroughly assess the gaps with the current site and its readiness to achieve the objectives set out by its management team
  • Feasibility design and option development
  • Assessment of options and presentation of final report
