There are not two pre-development projects alike. The site, the population, the businesses, the environment, the transportations, the challenges, the budget, the timeline, all constraints that form the baseline of a project are taken into consideration to design the framework of a pre-development project. The purpose of each pre-development phases consists in defining a program to identify the elements of the projects and the different entities that make each element feasible. Architects, engineers, service providers, counties, administrators, all different categories of people will interfere at different levels to bring a pre-development program to life.
In April 2020, the S.A.B. Center made a proposal for a project in Florida. Unfortunately, the project was cancelled with Covid-19. We decided to share this proposal in order to show the capacity of the S.A.B. Center in its mission. The goal of the S.A.B. Center is to identify each element of the project that bring social responsibility into focus to pass the test of the ISO 26000 label.
The following documents were made after the initial pre-developement project. The developer had brochures, architectural drawings, and a full range of documents made by his staff and architects but despite the volume and the quality of the documents, the project was frozen, no one to invest. The developer asked a proposal to offer a different approach and reach the main goal of building a “smart city”. This proposal takes into consideration the documents, it highlights some confusing aspects of the initial proposal and it suggest a methodology to orchestrate a new approach based on social responsibility.
