Life Sciences Real Estate Consultants

Our work as life sciences real estate consultants includes new facility project feasibility, owner representation for design-development management, and for due diligence in connection with facility acquisitions.

 

Life sciences real estate has been a favored investment asset class for some time now, and the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020 has only propelled investor interest in these assets.  Real estate matters related to the life sciences industries, involve companies, research universities, and government agencies working in fields such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, genetics and genomics, medical devices, and the like.   Many life sciences organizations are involved in original research and clinical trials, often in BtoB joint ventures and public-private arrangements.

 

Life sciences projects can be higher risk than other form of tenant-occupied real estate, given the cost premium for such facilities.

 

Facilities intended for occupancy by life sciences companies are a unique form of real estate.  As a result, investors know that purpose-built life sciences facilities can be significantly more expensive than more ordinary general-purpose office and industrial space.   Base building work, proper ventilation, security, ceiling heights, waste disposal, all such factors can make a life science campus with significant laboratory space as much as 50% more expensive than normal office space.

 

Our consulting services include:

 

  • Project Feasibility Consultants – Our project feasibility work for life sciences facilities takes into account that market supply and demand issues common to any real estate feasibility study, but also the additional factors that drive the industry.   The quality and number of research universities in an area, the type of research occurring at these educational institutions, the track record for government funding of such research, and the presence of existing public-private collaborations are all important to life sciences real estate success.  Life sciences “clusters” featuring research universities and corporate R&D programs exist throughout the U.S.   Some are longstanding and with significant critical mass while emerging clusters are in early growth in many regions.

 

  • Owner Representation for Design-Development – As owner’s reps, we work with owner to identify and retain the best team for a particular development project, including design professionals, structural and mechanical engineers, and a general contractor with specialty subs.   We collaborate with potential tenants or owner-occupier end users for the life sciences campus, ensuring their facility requirements are delivered.

Hotel Project Feasibility Consultants

Our work as hotel project feasibility consultants starts with market analysis and the feasibility of new development, the acquisition and disposition of properties, and a role as owner representative and asset manager on behalf of owner.

 

Of course, as the hotel industry manages through the difficult circumstances wrought by the Covid-19 pandemic, the focus of much of our consulting work has necessarily changed. Operating occupancies in the U.S. remain at or about 40% (less in many international regions) and travelers have changing preferences for their accomodations.

 

As a real estate investment asset class, branded hotels and resorts are now in a period of focused reexamination.

 

Many hotel branded products that have depended upon corporate meetings and travel, are currently obsolescent from an economic standpoint, while other lodging products are proving almost pandemic-proof.  As one of the significant real estate investment asset classes, branded hotels and resorts are now in a period of focused reexamination.

 

Some examples of our recent work as hotel project feasibility consultants, include:

 

 

 

  • Feasibility, business planning, and conceptual design for new glamping and eco-resort products, recreational vehicle (RV) parks and campgrounds, as well as major recreation adventure resorts;

 

 

  • More traditional consulting support, such as project feasibility studies for new development, and due diligence for client acquisitions – whether single properties or portfolios.

 

 

Our firm’s essential value to clients is our hands-on experience in designing, developing, and operating projects and businesses. StoneCreek Partners is led by co-founder Donald Bredberg and his substantial experience as an executive with The Irvine Company, NBCUniversal, and the Riyadh-based family office of Newfield Enterprises International.

Glamping and eco-resort accomodations are likely to do well in coming years, as travelers adapt to a world of social distancing and health concerns.

 

The firm was first established in 1984 in Los Angeles, and is now headquartered in Nevada. Our work as hotel project feasibility consultants got started shortly after the firm’s founding.  In those early days, as part of managing a portfolio of luxury hotels for a Saudi family office, our firm’s co-founder Donald Bredberg was one of the initial founder members of the Hotel Asset Manager’s Association.
