Feasibility and Market Studies

One of the first significant steps in getting to a “go/no go” decision for the project you are considering is to engage in a comprehensive feasibility study. There are any number of qualified firms that will conduct a feasibility study that will provide you with useful information. Unlike other firms, however, IWP utilizes the same rigorous feasibility process and standards for our clients that we employ in evaluating the viability of new projects that we own and operate ourselves. IWP invests millions of dollars of our capital in our company owned projects. As a result, our feasibility studies have to be right…every time. We bring this same commitment to “getting it right” to our feasibility work for our clients as well.

Our comprehensive approach to the feasibility process starts with understanding the vision you have for your project. Then, we set about assessing the quantitative and qualitative factors that need to be understood to determine the likelihood of project success. The following are typically included in our feasibility process:

  • Needs assessment
  • Market study
  • Core program identification
  • Operations and staffing plans
  • 10 year operational pro forma
  • Project site analysis
  • Facility building program and budget
  • Capital requirements and ownership structure

Based on our assessment, we make concrete, achievable and actionable recommendations that will lead to improved operational success for your facility.
