StoneCreek Partners’ Charrettes and Go-Aways

StoneCreek Partners (“SCP”) has been working with urban planners and architects in various world regions, in support of conceptual design and initial feasibility matters.   In these settings, SCP sometimes leads such efforts but is also active as a workshop participant.   In the same way, SCP is also taking on the role of facilitator at board retreats and management “go-aways,” helping management and director teams evaluate capital decisions, business plans, and new product development.

Often led by SCP’s Donald Bredberg, StoneCreek adds a hands-on realism to planning along with a flair for innovation and creative solutions.   Don Bredberg brings a diverse experience to these session, having represented major Saudi and Japanese investors, led specific place product development at Universal Studios, and acted as a strategic and land use planner for many of the largest master-planned communities built to-date.

Over the last several years, SCP charrette sessions have taken place in the U.S., China, France, and Nigeria.

SCP is also able to pull in competitive research about players, places, and projects in global regions, through ongoing research efforts at Global Players Brief (

AEC Completes its 2nd Full Year of Operation

Our spin-off of Adventure Entertainment Cos. (AEC) has worked out well. Placing our entertainment industry practice in a purpose-built entity has allowed AEC to focus solely on creative works, conceptual design, and first efforts towards development of our AEC-owned place products.


Our visualization work such as the studio attractions at Camp Page in Chuncheon (shown above), are first-rate and all the better with integrated SCP input for feasibility, business planning, and development input to the creative process.    AEC’s specialization in mixed-use film studios has allowed a specialized area of experience to emerge, through assignments in France, Spain, Nigeria, China, and the U.S., whether for to-be-built facilities, or re-purposed film studios needing new life.


Through AEC, our intention has been to go directly to 3d visualization during ideation, to help project teams fully consider experiential design options.

In 1793, Barker moved his panoramas to the first purpose-built panorama building in the world, in Leicester Square and by all reports, made a fortune.
