Business and Financial Planning

Business planning:  We have undertaken business planning work for facilities of every scale, from international; to local community provision. A sample includes:

  • The business plan for Loughborough University to support the funding application for the English Institute for Sport High Performance Centre at the university. Our work identified the income and expenditure projections for the operation of the centre and following the success of the grant bid, the facility (below) was opened in 2004.


  • A business plan for North Hertfordshire District Council for a new leisure centre in Royston. Our work looked at the financial implications of six different facility options and guided the council in determining the eventual facility mix. The centre (below) opened in 2005 and has been operating very successfully ever since.


  • A business plan for a new sports hall being provided as part of the Shoreditch Campus development by Hackney Community College. The business plan helped to attract funding and the SPACe (Sport and Performing Arts Centre) is now a very successful dual use project.
