Sport, leisure and hospitality


The leisure and hospitality sector is characterised by having three main parties within any capital project, the developer, operator and investor. Each member of the team has a new set of pressures brought on by the recent global economic climate:

  • Developers: Reduced access to capital meaning that initiating schemes and achieving viability has become more challenging
  • Operators: Increased need for operational efficiencies and a greater demand to maintain global brand standards. These place new constraints upon the developments, further reducing viability: Increased need for operational efficiencies and a greater demand to maintain global brand standards. These place new constraints upon the developments, further reducing viability
  • Investors: Increasingly more risk averse

With this background, we are helping the sports, leisure and hospitality sector to find more ways to drive greater efficiencies into their schemes.
