MASTER PLANNING AND FEASIBILITY STUDIES
A master plan is a dynamic long-term planning document that provides a conceptual layout to guide future growth and development. Master planning is about making the connection between buildings, social settings, and their surrounding environments. A master plan includes analysis, recommendations, and proposals for a site’s population, economy, housing, transportation, community facilities, and land use. It is based on public input, surveys, planning initiatives, existing development, physical characteristics, and social and economic conditions. (World Bank, 2019).
Master planning can assume some or all of these roles:
- Develop a phasing and implementation schedule and identify priorities for action.
- Act as a framework for regeneration and attract private sector investment.
- Conceptualize and shape the three-dimensional urban environment.
- Define public, semiprivate, and private spaces and public amenities.
- Determine the mix of uses and their physical relationship.
- Engage the local community and act as builder of consensus.
The feasibility study is an objective review of available options for development. It includes findings, analysis, and conclusions from the visioning and scoping exercises for a given site or inner-city area. It indicates whether the chosen site is suitable for the intended function, taking into account the financial, social, and environmental aspects of each proposal. Many comprehensive master plans start with a feasibility study in order to understand the site’s geographic, environmental, and historic context. This process builds on the information collected and analysis developed during the scoping phase. Any background reports that are deemed necessary (that is, hydrology, environment, cultural heritage, transport, and so on) should also be commissioned at this stage to inform the master planning process (Blackmore 1990).
Detailed design is sometimes referred to as 'developed design' or 'definition'. It is the process of taking on and developing the approved concept design. By the end of the detailed design process, the design should be dimensionally correct and co-ordinated, describing all the main components of the building and how they fit together. However, technical aspects of the design may require further development, design by specialists may not yet have been fully incorporated into the design and it will not have been packaged for tender.
Conceptual design is the very first phase of design, in which drawings or solid models are the dominant tools and products. The conceptual design phase provides a description of the proposed system in terms of a set of integrated ideas and concepts about what it should do, how it should behave, and what it should look like, which will be understandable by users in the manner intended.

Construction management (CM) is a professional service that uses specialized, project management techniques to oversee the planning, design, and construction of a project, from its beginning to its end. The purpose of CM is to control a project's time / delivery, cost and quality—sometimes referred to as a project management triangle or "triple constraints." CM is compatible with all project delivery systems, including design-bid-build, design-build, CM At-Risk and Public Private Partnerships. Professional construction managers may be reserved for lengthy, large-scale, high budget undertakings.
GIS MAPPING FOR WEBSITE AND MOBILE APPLICATION
"A geographic information system (GIS) is a system designed to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of geographical data. The key word to this technology is Geography – this means that some portion of the data is spatial. In other words, data that is in some way referenced to locations on the earth. Coupled with this data is usually tabular data known as attribute data. Attribute data can be generally defined as additional information about each of the spatial features. GIS is more than just software. People and methods are combined with geospatial software and tools, to enable spatial analysis, manage large datasets, and display information in a map/graphical form. GiS Mapping incorporated in the website and other mobile application allowed for better project management and monitoring. This application was piloted under the E-ARMM Project for the DPWH-ARMM".

Comprehensive Study on the Possible Land Use Conversion of the Payatas Controlled Disposal Facility (PCDF)
WCI was contracted by the Environmental Protection and Waste Management Department (EPWMD) of the QC Local Government in 2017 to carefully consider the possibility of converting the land use of the Payatas Controlled Disposal Facility (PCDF) due to the high cost of Post-Closure Care (PCC) maintenance services and the surge in real property market values.
The site used to be the main disposal area of the city from 1970’s to 2010. It was converted from an open dumpsite into a controlled dumpsite in 2004, and was closed in December 2010 in compliance with the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000. A sanitary landfill (SLF) was then constructed adjacent to the site, and began operating in 2011 and was closed in 2017.
In this project, WCI assessed the environmental conditions of the site and proposed after-use developments based from the results and input from the project stakeholders.
The use of landfill mining and reclamation was incorporated in the study as a way of remediating the environmental impacts of the site and preparing it for other developmental options.
Financial and economic analyses were also carried out to determine the viability of the proposed schemes vis-à-vis other competing issues such as land ownership, amount of residual methane, outstanding contract with Pangea, source of funds, PCC periods for both the PCDF and the SLF, and environmental monitoring results.
