RECREATION, COMMUNITY AND ENTERTAINMENT
The principals of Sierra have over 10 years of experience of recreation and entertainment planning. We have undertaken numerous feasibility assessments for community ice arenas, community centres, libraries and sports fields, and conducted master plans to guide forward planning for both facilities and services.
The principals of Sierra are experts in the economics and planning of new state-of-the-art multi-use sports and entertainment centres in Canada. We have been involved in a number of signature projects and provide a range of integrated services to help municipalities determine the relative costs and benefits of such significant investment: this includes planning for appropriate scale, securing the location which will yield maximum economic gain to the surrounding business community, rigorous analysis of operating cash flow based on a detailed assessment of the markets for sports and non-sports events, the advantages of co-location with other facilities, including hotel and convention functions, and the assessment of capital costs. We also assist clients in assessing the general market potential for entertainment spending, define market areas, and assess the viability of individual entertainment projects or facilities. We assist municipalities and others in the assessment of economic impacts of entertainment spending.Specific services include:
- Major Venue Market and Financial Plans;
