Urban Enterprise has significant experience in the preparation of business plans, feasibility studies and business case assessments for tourism, education, justice, commercial and residential projects.
Many of our assessments have resulted in the attraction of substantial public and private sector funding. Our assessments are underpinned by thorough economic and financial modelling which ensures investment concepts meet the requirements of Government and funding organisations.
Urban Enterprise was initially engaged to prepare a feasibility study for the rail trail between Tallarook and Mansfield. This was subsequently extended to prepare a Concept Plan and Business Plan for the development of the Trail. This work led to the provision of $13 million in grant funding from the State and Federal Governments. The Trail has been constructed and is operating successfully.
Urban Enterprise undertook a study which investigated the benefits of the RACV Cape Shank Resort redevelopment to the Mornington Peninsula Shire economy.
The study also highlighted the broader alignment of the project to the key gaps in Mornington Peninsula tourism infrastructure including quality accommodation in the Southern Peninsula.
The study supported the proposal and subsequently RACV have commenced construction of the $120 million redevelopment.
Urban Enterprise prepared the Department's first Asset Management Strategy in 1998, focusing on the future need for police stations, court houses and collocated SES facilities. Urban Enterprise was subsequently engaged to update the Asset Management Strategy over a number of years. The outcome of this work was the establishment of a rolling program for new and/or refurbished facilities across the State.
Urban Enterprise, in conjunction with Tract Landscape Architects were commissioned by Greater Shepparton City Council to prepare the Victoria Lake Masterplan and Feasibility Study.
