Development Projects and Facilities
We help our clients’ research, analyze and finance development projects and facilities. Combining feasibility, costing, economics and finance, we advise developers, economic development agencies, rural and urban municipalities and private-public partnerships on the financing, start-up planning and operating cycles of capital projects and facilities.
Our marquee projects include the Alberta Film Studio (Calgary, AB), a municipal marina feasibility study, lake-side developments, commercial complexes, and recreational facilities. We have also advised high-rise developers in the Calgary beltline, multi-family developers, mixed-use developers to commercial (owner-occupied) projects, community developers, resort developers, and in-land and lake-shore marina parks.
With an in-depth understanding of the capital project and facilities, we’re able to provide a comprehensive suite of services focused on successful development and operations – today, and well into the future.
