Strategic Planning & Market Research

No project is undertaken without a complete development strategy being put in place that adheres to best practices methodologies. The first step involves assembling a knowledgeable and experienced project team with disciplines appropriate to the project, including owner representatives, developer, architect, civil engineer, environmental consultant and economic feasibility consultant.

The project team must consider all influences from market demand to topography to government jurisdiction when developing a successful project.

Integral to the planning process is development of an economic model that determines the financial and budget parameters for the project. This model provides a structure in which to test the sensitivity of various operating assumptions and financing applications with the goal of optimizing the financial performance of the project. Continuous monitoring of the financial feasibility and performance of the project is central to DSG’s approach to project management.
