Starting from concept development, first sketches (with no restrictions) to the initiation of governmental and financial processes, the production and delivery of a master plan and feasibility study to the principal is within our extensive perspective of capabilities.
Project Development is based on executing and implementing an initial idea. Regardless of the phase of your project, for example the master plan phase, design phase or specification phase, we go into depth and with project development we bring your project one step further. An important part of the process of project development is programming & concept development.

The results of our study is to give direction to the principal in order to make a well-advised decision for a ‘go’ or ‘no go’ on further project development.
We can develop a master plan for every resort or leisure project in the industry. Setting the framework for the investment and development is the master planning. We start with a spot plan and follow up with a master plan, creating the basis of planning, define the investment budget and decide on the ideal location for the project. The plan involves logistical routing, operational efficiency, government limitations, site specifications, etcetera. This plan is the basis throughout the entire development process of a project.
Creating a program (programming) during the development of a leisure park or resort is inevitable. The process of programming can be explained as describing the big idea into every detail and make the ideas buildable. Programming includes defining the objectives, the unique selling points, segmentation and target groups, amount of square meters and the amount of seats for example. All information for every section can be found in the design briefs we produce. The design briefs are a source of reference and basis for design, architects and to determine further specifications.
