No two communities are the same. So understanding the particular needs of a community, and community-based organisations, is essential.
As a community grows or changes, services and facilities have to evolve and adapt to meet new needs. The services and solutions we provide are tailor-made, holistic, adaptable and sustainable.
The core upon which we base them includes the following:
We work with clients to develop visionary, yet achievable, strategies. In the community development sector we work on everything from individual community and arts facility plana to regional community development strategies.
NEEDS ASSESSMENT AND DEMOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS
Understanding current and future community needs and trends ensures that better programme and facility development decisions are made. You can use this information to fill existing and potential gaps in services and facilities.
Our suite of innovative techniques lets you engage and consult with all communities of interest, whether they are individuals, groups or organisations.
FEASIBILITY STUDIES & BUSINESS CASES
Our objective, holistic advice helps to optimise and underpin investment decisions, greater financial scrutiny, facility development and better operational performance.
We can help determine the financial viability and sustainability of a proposed initiative. Including cash flow analysis, whole-of-life cost analysis and the identification of new opportunities.
CONCEPT AND MASTER PLANNING
We provide objective, expert advice on optimising open space, site and facility design. Resulting in improved functionality, reduced operational costs and increased revenue.
FUNDING & COMMERCIAL SOLUTIONS
We can investigate and advise on funding, procurement, maximising commercial opportunities and new income streams.
GOVERNANCE AND MANAGEMENT STRUCTURES
Building better organisational capability is the sure way to deliver on your short and long-term strategic goals. We can help to conceptualise, establish, review and/or optimise organisational structures – at board, management and operational level – to create the organisation you need.
FACILITY NETWORK PLANNING
Taking a facility network approach towards future planning and investment is critical. We can assist you with full network plans or specific tasks, such as current state analysis, gap analysis, prioritisation and recommendations for future provision.
We can undertake all your required community research from large holistic studies, to a focus on a core area or topic.
