Your one-stop service provider for project implementation
Sierra Planning and Management brings over two decades of experience in project implementation. We provide hands on project management, building on our expertise in project feasibility, planning and funding. As projects migrate from plans to action, we have helped many clients manage this process through timely advice, assistance to client in-house project managers, or a full-service project management role. We help ensure that clients adopt the right process for selecting service providers, design-build teams and public-private partnership partners. For our clients in the municipal, university and college and institutional sectors, we ensure that board, council and senior management goals are met, processes are fair, and results meet expectations.
Once projects are funded and proponents selected, we offer specialist construction management services through our partners at International Coliseums Company (ICC). With experience across North America, ICC has managed the development of major municipal and university construction projects in Canada and the US.

Harney County Fairgrounds, Oregon (2019-2020)
Harney County in south east Oregon is one of the largest counties in the State and comprises range lands that yield beef cattle. The annual fair is an integral part of the economy, showcasing the success of the agricultural sector, and the importance of the land to the people of the County as well as the residents of Hines and Burns. International Coliseums Company and Sierra Planning and Management were retained by the County to complete a first phase assessment of the future investment needs of the Fairgrounds as well as identify the operational resources necessary to ensure the long-term growth of the Fair and its contribution to the community.
Subsequent phases will include a master plan design for reinvigoration of the assets that comprise the Fairgrounds, and the development of a capital budget which is expected to include an indoor spectator arena to host a range of event year-round. Funding plans to assist with this project are equally important and include the potential to establish the Fairgrounds as part of the State’s resilient communities plan providing for emergency shelter and other services.
