Financial Masterplanning

Complex placemaking requires clear financial masterplanning alongside the design masterplanning to determine the land strategy, infrastructure-funding plan and long term returns to the investors and landowners.

Earth has developed a robust model methodology and approach that enables the evaluation of the preferred development structure, development cashflows, allocation of appropriate risk and returns, together with ensuring effective delivery of the whole scheme.

Our financial masterplans enable the investors to optimise the funding terms and quantum of debt and equity. The financial masterplan model can then be used to support the application and requirement of public funding support, together with the drawdown and return waterfall arrangements together with any debt raising exercise.

Earth has a strong track record of preparing site wide financial masterplans and scheme wide development models, typically for the landowners.
Earth has carried out financial masterplanning for a variety of projects including:
