Strategic Project Development

Health-Tech Development advances the strategic direction and mission of our clients & projects through alignment with core values and application of business intelligence to move those values into actionable strategies.

Strategic Project Development consists of very specific steps which must be carefully coordinated and executed to achieve success. Once properly executed, there is project continuity from conception till completion/commissioning as well as long-term stewardship of development projects   

1. Project Assessment  

Initial feasibility and analysis of anticipated needs, unit volumes, geographic preferences, marketing analysis, etc. of potential projects with emphasis on client’s mission, vision and values. Provide expedited reviews to quickly determine if project is worthy of expending additional resources.

2. Project Definition & Development

After prioritization, by drawing upon internal and external design and project management resources, the basic project concepts are developed and compared to the need analysis, developed above.

3. Strategic Analysis 

Focusing on opportunities of the highest strategic value, an analysis of the project benefits is completed. While often viewed in terms of financial return, other key, core components of benefit include, client satisfaction/experience, marketing, community benefit, etc.

4. Real Estate/Property Evaluation 

Search out, evaluate and obtain appropriate real estate that meets strategic criteria. In instances where warranted, manage the divestiture of properties & redeployment of assets.

5. Public/Community Relations 

Represent, advance and protect our client’s strategic and financial interests within the community, surrounding neighborhoods as well as with city, county and state officials. Maintain communication throughout the project lifecycle to protect, promote and achieve the project’s and client’s best interests.

6. Regulatory Compliance 

Provide the identification early in the project lifecycle of actual and potential regulatory impacts both financially and in terms of schedule. Research and negotiate terms with ‘Authorities Having Jurisdiction’ to maintain and promote client’s interests. This category spans from civic to regional to federal compliance. (Municipal councils, zoning commissions, landmarks/historic commissions, state & federal compliance, Army Corps of Engineers, EPA, etc.) These impacts are consistently monitored & adjusted throughout the project lifecycle.

7. Financing 

Develop client’s projects to conform to, or to define, project financial constraints. Develop and modulate design intent to align with initial financial projections. Coordinate project definition, collateral materials & provide interaction to support client’s mission.

8. Internal Communication/Media Relations 

During all project phases, with emphasis in the early stages, develop plans for internal communication as well as appropriately timed external media plans. Provide business intelligence, project data & feedback on media inquiries throughout the various phases of projects.

9. Implementation 

Coordinate full implementation of the project consistent with programmatic and financial definitions. Continue to monitor projects to promote & protect Client’s interests with emphasis on the items listed above.

10. Project Commissioning  

Develop a commissioning strategy, beginning with project definition, to assure that all building systems are designed, installed and completed in accordance with the design intent, that they are consistent with the owner’s desires and that facilities engineering staff are prepared to operate and maintain the completed facility with a true ‘ownership perspective.’
