Institutions can usually take a long view of their built assets, even though their requirements might be acute. Issues include: masterplanning, brief development, funding and project development, as well as building. Marcus Beale heads institutional and urban projects at MBA. Skills that we bring to institutional projects include a track record in user consultation and participation, and an understanding of issues of long term value and sustainability.
