Master Planning.

Berth holders, visitors, residents – in other words, people – are all users of the spaces and facilities created and are therefore at the heart of any master plan. That means a successful master plan has to set out how to create and sustain excellent places to live, work and play.

The master plan must balance the complex needs of all stakeholders to find the optimum mix. It must be grounded on research, so our master plans bring together the work and results from our site appraisal, market and feasibility study, and the outline design.

Our overall vision for the development can be presented in either two dimensional coloured plans or fully rendered three dimensional images taken from our computer model of the development.

The detail of the plan sets out proposals for pontoons, buildings, spaces, movement strategy and land use. We recognise that a marina is the link between the land and the water. A successful master plan therefore has to make it easy for people to make the transition from land to water or vice versa, and provide all of the facilities that people need both on and off the water.

Our plans are always aimed at making the most efficient use of the spaces available whilst maintaining flexibility to adapt and evolve, meaning that the development remains sustainable well into the future.

We’ll also undertake financial and economic appraisal, and show you a realistic delivery mechanism.
