Your market in Eastern Europe is Growing 20% annually.
At what point will you need to
expand your plant in Asia?
Do you have enough land?

Accounting tells you to consolidate the Dayton and Columbus Branches.
Do you know which site can best support the additional staffing? Can the parking lot be expanded? How many open cubicles are there?

These questions and the answers are the reason to have a Site and Facility Master Plan in place

Master Planning

Site and Facilities Master Planning is:

An in-depth study of a existing or new Site and Facility where the resulting outcome is a physical representation of the Business Plan.

To accomplish this, we work closely with the client following the basic steps outlined below:

Step 1:
Business Plan and Planning Team
The business plan should contain current and future volume estimates for the next 10 years as well as current and future projects. It should also set study expectations and boundaries. This will act as the road map for the next steps. The planning team should include representatives from each operational area of the organization.

Step 2:
Due Diligence and Needs Assessment
Collect and document the existing site and facility including: Utilities, Zoning, Building, Site, Employee Support, Offices, Parking, Docks, Logistics, Warehouse, Operational Capacities and any other items that could impact the master plan. Perform in depth interviews with each team member to access the needs of their operational area and the impact of the business plan on their area

Step 3:
Criteria and Constraints Development
Establish, review and rank the criteria that will be used to generate and evaluate the options. Identify any constraints that would restrict the options including capital, timing, disruption to current business, etc.

Step 4:
Option Development
Develop options and migration plans to meet the business plan. The options will be varied as some focus on lowest cost, operational flow, change of business need, timing and more.

Step 5:
Option Evaluation and Selection
Evaluate each option against the Business Plan, Criteria, Constraints, Cost, Timing, Function, Flexibility, Constructability etc. Then after ranking, scoring select the “best value option” and generate a migration plan to deliver this option.
