Strategy and Masterplanning 

We develop strategies and masterplans for cultural and heritage projects. We help define the client’s vision for the project and, based on rigorous research we then create robust feasibility studies, options appraisals and plans that provide answers to their strategic requirements. 

Working closely with the client team and subject experts, we develop strategic timelines and capital budgets for projects and examine various delivery options and methods of procurement. We advise on suitable modes of governance, ownership and management structures and address how cultural and heritage projects can raise, receive and invest funds.

We translate the project vision into architectural briefs and organise international architectural procurement processes.
