Master planning Zernike has a wealth of experience in planning, realization and management of Science & Technology parks and precincts, sustainable development and international (technology) business development in over 30 countries all around the world. From that experience, we understand the importance of building up proposals and masterplans on the basis of the local strengths, within the international context and based on the best practices around the globe. Zernike works closely together with the Client, rather than purely for the Client to ensure that the embedding of the project starts from day one. As a consequence, Zernike is prepared to show a unique level of transparency. Our work will instantly train the people involved from the Clients side, hence adding valuable experience to the staff for future phases of the project.
