The Masterplan, a Strategic Tool for the Development and Use of Real Estate Resources
The early phases of a project play a particularly significant role in ATP’s integrated design approach. The influence of these phases on cost, sustainable quality and lifecycle is almost unlimited – regardless of whether the project involves a single building, a building ensemble or an urban district. The aim is to align short, medium and long term constructional measures with the client’s strategic objectives.
For this reason the drawing up of a masterplan has proved itself to be an essential part of the preparatory work before the commencement of constructional measures. As a medium and long-term strategic document this establishes clear guidelines for design and execution work that are in line with the client’s strategy. The structure and central propositions of a masterplan establish the framework for concrete design tasks. Regular updates and needs-based adaptation ensure that a masterplan retains its strategic value.
Masterplans are documents which present the results of the following design work at all scales:
- Urban and district development
- Location development
- Building development
The ATP masterplanning process can be divided into the following steps:
- Compilation of the existing situation
- Determination of the project requirements
- Development of an ideal diagram
- Development of real variants
- Summary of the above in the form of a masterplan report
