A feasibility study is an in-depth evaluation of your facility concept including the multitude of market factors that may impact the long term viability of the project.

SFC’s feasibility report goes well beyond a traditional narrative approach and includes our Pro Forma, a 5-year institutional grade financial forecast. It combines a thorough analysis of market and demographic conditions with an analysis of potential competitors and real-world financial and operational data from thousands of communities. This information allows our Development Advisors to provide financial projections, create realistic and reliable program plans, and make recommendations for successful project development.

The feasibility report often serves as a critical evaluation tool for public or municipal clients looking to understand the viability of a new community recreation center, sports tournament complex, wellness, or event center in response to their community’s needs or demands.

We are often asked if our feasibility studies ever result in a ‘not feasible’ report; the answer is yes. SFC does not ‘rubber stamp’ project concepts that are not viable, but instead partners with our clients to find a solution that is. About 30% of our studies result in a project that, as defined by the client, is not feasible. Nearly 40% of our studies result in a “yes-if”, which means that with changes to the original facility concept, the project will meet the client’s definition of success (financial, societal, health) with the remaining 30% of studies resulting in a positive result as-is.
