Strong master planning can create consistently organized campuses that attract industry-leading corporations. In 2013, BHDP was commissioned to develop a master plan for a 100-hectare site (1250 acres) in Panama City, Panama. Utilizing the BHDP’s Design Process, the developer was lead through a process whereby a Master Plan was assembled to attract U.S. and International Corporations, regulate development to meet a consistent quality, and provide a return on investment for the developer.
BHDP executed a research initiative to understand the market, competition, and economic impact of the canal expansion. BHDP lead a team including many consultants to address building configuration and footprint sizes, reliability of utility services to the campus (electrical and domestic water), site accessibility from major vehicular arteries (both public and private transportation), the density of the built environment (parking-to-building SF ratio), and stormwater and flooding mediation.
