Description

 

Master planning is an essential process for any cemetery, funeral home, or place of worship, and the benefits of developing and implementing a master plan are immense.  A master plan allows a client to identify short and long term needs for their cemetery(ies), map their overall strategy and goals, and have a logical and realistic implementation plan for a variety of projects based on need.

 

A well developed master plan will optimize land utilization, while at the same time improving the overall aesthetic of a cemetery by incorporating a variety of features and buildings into a tasteful, coordinated, and cohesive plan.  Furthermore an aesthetically pleasing cemetery increases the marketability of that cemetery.

 

A well developed master plan also includes feasibility studies, both to evaluate existing facilities to determine their long-term sustainability and how they support a cemetery's goals and needs, and also to analyze the value and potential return on a variety of projects.  For future projects, master planning can allow for phased project implementation, allowing a client to balance development costs with revenue and expand inventory based on need. Another benefit to master planning is that it can improve pedestrian and vehicular flow and access, and effective design cues can serve to help people navigate a cemetery with ease.

 

Whether you require a master plan for a new development or you wish to develop a plan for an existing property, the master planning process provides a proactive road map rather than a reactive one.
