Week X Case Study Assignment

Title That Describes the Intent of Assignment

 

Background

The purpose of this template is to prove guidance on both formatting and progression of ideas when drafting assignments.

 

We begin with the background section.  In this section, please describe:

The asset under review.  This includes type, age, class, location (metropolitan statistical area and submarket/neighborhood).  Also, include key metrics that are useful to consider when your reader is reintroduced to the deal and your new analysis included as part of this memo.

 

As this is a rolling assignment based on reading for each week, you will update the background section weekly throughout this course.  Your background should be specific to the new information provided each week.  For example, Week 3 asks students to apply debt to their scenario analysis.  Use this section to inform the reader on any updates to negotiations and how this update impacted your analysis throughout.  In the case of Week 3, you will want to share that the seller has partnered with a lender and also provide the terms of the debt offered.  Week 4 and beyond will have unique updates to provide.

 

Images can help here as you deem appropriate and as needed as the deal progresses.  Images may include maps, pictures of the property and surrounding location so as to provide context for your reader.  The formatting of your assignments may look something like what is presented herein. However, this formatting template is meant to act as a guide when completing your work for submission at Georgetown, and in your career.   Find opportunities to be creative in a manner that sets up apart from your peers.

 

Our weekly case study assignments will ask you to perform specific analysis so as to arrive at a conclusion for recommendation.  Our expectation is that you use assignments as opportunities to provide more than a summary of deal metrics.  We want to know:

  • What is the analysis telling you? What are your resulting recommendations?
  • It is equally as important to tell us about your perspectives on the deal; what you think and why.

 

Leverage Analysis (title will change with each assignment you submit)

In Week 2, we asked you to perform an unleveraged analysis for three asset class scenarios (Trophy, Class A, Class B).  Week 3 asks to (i) review scenarios; (ii) apply the debt terms that are described in Blackboard to each scenario (iii) determine the type of investor that would be appropriate; (iv) identify the proposed returns that the project would earn.  Week 4 will have novelty as will subsequent assignments.

 

 

 

 

 

Leveraged Trophy Analysis (title will also change with each assignment)

Begin your analysis by providing a description of the respective development scenario and follow with a table that summarizes your findings.  Best to have a simple, precise and clear narrative about what the reader is looking at in the table that follows your description.  Also, helps to briefly explain your understanding of the assumptions that drive this analysis.

 

You will want to provide sufficient narrative such that your instructor(s) can easily identify where you may have made an error conceptually and help you address it immediately.

 

  • Provide bulleted notes below the table that help guide the reader in the same format as has been included here.
  • What would be useful comments that allow for a full understanding of your findings in the table above?

 

Leveraged Class A Analysis

Replicate format above based on analysis performed for Class A scenario.

 

  • Provide bulleted notes below the table that help guide the reader in the same format as has been included here.
  • What would be useful comments that allow for a full understanding of your findings in the table above?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leveraged Class B Analysis

Replicate format above based on analysis performed for Class B scenario.

  • Provide bulleted notes below the table that help guide the reader in the same format as has been included here.
  • What would be useful comments that allow for a full understanding of your findings in the table above?

 

Sensitivity Analysis

Continuing with week 3 as an example, students are also tasked with presenting sensitivity analysis associated with this project.  Intent of these sensitivities is to determine a range of anticipated return to investors.  We have asked you to run the following sensitives below:

 

Rent Sensitivity Analysis

In support of your rent sensitivity analysis, your table will need to include a range of rental rates that are less than and greater than the projected rate that you concluded to earlier in this course (a range of at least 10% both positively and negatively).  Projected cash flow through to disposition will change in conjunction with corresponding change in rent, as will disposition values, net proceeds, and ultimately IRR to the proposed investor.  Ensure that your table has as sufficient range of rents to adequately capture the various scenarios we have asked you to run previously (Trophy rents; Class A rents; Class B rents).  Provide notes as necessary that offer helpful guidance to the reader regarding your assumptions and the associated risks therein.

 

  • Provide bulleted notes below the table that help guide the reader in the same format as has been included here.
  • What would be useful comments that allow for a full understanding of your findings in the table above?

 

 

 

 

Construction Cost Sensitivity

As above, construction costs will increase based on the various scenarios we have asked you to run (Trophy, Class A, Class B).  The range of construction costs will impact the level of equity that your proposed investor will need to fund.  Cash flows for each scenario will reflect rental rates per scenario type (Trophy rents…) and will ultimately impact IRR, which your table should show.

 

  • Provide bulleted notes below the table that help guide the reader in the same format as has been included here.
  • What would be useful comments that will allow for a full understanding of your findings in the table above?

 

Disposition Cap Rate Sensitivity

As above, cap rates will be either higher or lower depending on the scenario. Buyers will pay more for better product, and less as the asset quality declines (no surprise then that Trophy will earn a lower cap rate than Class A, and Class B will earn a higher cap rate than Class A). Thus, disposition values will have a range based on range of cap rate, as will IRR.

 

  • Provide bulleted notes below the table that help guide the reader in the same format as has been included here.
  • What would be useful comments that will allow for a full understanding of your findings in the table above?

 

 

Recommendations

Take a moment to reflect on your analysis above and insights that your analysis provided that should be reinforced.  This is the ‘therefore’ section, and you are using language to motivate your firm’s leadership without also coming across as overbearing.  As an example for Week 3, it may be helpful to have a table that reflects the best option based on the sensitivities you generated.  Ultimately each week will require new insight based on leadership’s needs, so best to be flexible with your organization based on what you learned from performed analysis.

 

Our expectation is that you use assignments as opportunities to provide more than a summary of key metrics and also use as opportunity to concisely discuss impact on projected returns to investors based on new information provide each week.

 

What is the analysis telling you about risk? What are your resulting recommendations that are both realistic and can be achievable economically in the context of your investor’s requirements about return rates?  The purpose is to balance risk with your own solutions to continue deal flow and successfully create value.

Description of Assignment

With reference to a commercial property in either China or the UK, explain what issues a developer must consider in order to maximise profit and minimise economic and financial risk before, during and post development, irrespective of whether they choose to sell the property, or retain and manage it as an ongoing investment.

 

In order to answer this question, you must:

 

  1. Choose an existing property, not more than 10 years old, and assume (pretend) that you are a developer who is building it now.  Include a location plan and a photograph or other image of your chosen development.  For the purposes of this assignment, assume that there are no existing occupiers or legal title issues.  You are going to develop a ‘cleared’ site.

 

  1. Consider the options available in order to finance your development.  You only have 10% of the cost of construction ‘in the bank’ (equity).  What options are available for you to finance the remaining 90% of the project; which option(s) will you choose and why?  Please provide the reasons for your decision.

 

  1. Consider how you will maximise your profit: Using economic theory explain how you can minimise your costs and maximise your revenue?

 

  1. Identify the ethical issues likely to be involved with your development and explain how (having regards to RICS professional and ethical standards) you will manage any ethical issues or conflicts.

 

 

Guidance

  • More specific guidance on this assignment can be found on Blackboard under “Assessment” and will also be provided in your teaching sessions.

 

  • This assignment requires you to produce a report focusing on a specific property in either China or the UK. You are going to play the part of a developer who has to needs to decide how a development is to be financed and is to be economically viable.  In doing so, you may incorporate (use) any economic theory and diagrams that you consider relevant and appropriate.

 

Learning Outcomes

ENGR 381 Contemporary Issue Assignment
Review and Reflection on Hydraulic Fracturing
DUE DATE: 15th December
Thermodynamics is fundamentally a subject about energy, which affects our lives in many
different ways. The availability of energy impacts our lifestyle, environment, economy, and
health. One of the primary controversial current topics related to energy is hydraulic fracturing.
Our contemporary issue project this semester will focus on hydraulic fracturing, which is a
controversial technique for harvesting natural gas (and other hydrocarbons) from the earth. This
project has two parts, the first being related to objective aspects of hydraulic fracturing and the
second being subjective to yourself and your own values. The final product of this project will
be a formal written report. The breakdown for the report will be as follows:
1. Part 1: An overview of hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) (2-3 pages, 12 point font, single
spacing)
a. A technical description of fracking
b. An overview of benefits, potential and realized
c. An overview of drawbacks, potential and realized
d. What biases do you detect?
e. Are there discrepancies in your resources?
2. Part 2: Your view on hydraulic fracturing (1-2 pages, 12 point font, single spacing)
a. Evaluate this technology from your personal perspective
b. Engage your values and beliefs as well as engineering ethics and virtues
c. Being as realistic as you can, what is your final recommendation regarding this
technology? Try to be convincing.
This project will require the gathering of information from a variety of sources. You should
include at least one from each of the following:
1. Documentary films
2. Mainstream newpaper articles
3. Blogs/editorial websites
4. Scientific articles
5. Editorials/articles/position statements from engineering societies (e.g. ASME, AIAA,
ACS, etc.)
6. Business magazines
Look for bias (implicit or explicit), and comment on it in your writing. Cite your research
materials throughout your report. Find your own references; I don’t expect to see the same set of
references for any two reports. Give proper citation to any figures used from your sources. See
the included materials on engineering ethics and virtues, and cite these as you make your
arguments in part 2.
Grading criterion: Quality of writing (including the use of citations) (25%), completeness of
background in part 1 (25%), articulation of your point of view in part 2 including citations to
ethics/virtue references (20%), persuasiveness (15%), effective use of figures (15%).
See attached documents on engineering ethics and virtues.

Answer the following questions using the information provided above.

  1. What problem are amphibians experiencing worldwide? Please explain it as clearly and completely as you can in the space provided (approximately 150 words). Make sure you address broadly what is happening as well as causal factors involved. (max. 2 pts)

 

 

  1. What does the “climate-linked epidemic” hypothesis of Pounds et al. (2006) propose (that is, what is hypothesized to be causing the problem)? Summarize it in 1-2 sentences, using your own words. (max. 1 pt)

 

 

  1. List two distinct lines of evidence used to support the “climate-linked epidemic” hypothesis in your own words. (This is data that corresponds to one of the predictions of the hypothesis.

  1. What does the “spatio-temporal spread” hypothesis of Lips et al. (2008) propose? Summarize it in 1-2 sentences, using your own words. (max. 1 pt)

 

 

 

  1. List two distinct lines of evidence used to support the “spatio-temporal spread” hypothesis in your own words. (max. 2 pts)

 

 

  1. How are these two hypotheses different in terms of their predictions? Contrast the predictions of each hypothesis. Explain in 2-4 sentences, using your own words. (max. 2 pts)

 

 

 

  1. Please list and explain one strength and one weakness of each hypothesis in the chart below. A weakness is something about the hypothesis (an assumption, way something is measured, piece of data, combination of data, or absence of data, etc.) that makes it less convincing. A strength is something that makes it more convincing. (max. 4 pts)

  1. If you were Ms. Torres, and you had to briefly describe to your students why the frogs have disappeared in this forest, and what you think is the most likely explanation, what would you say? Write your explanation as if you are talking to high school students. Be sure to synthesize the information available; your explanation should include an informed evaluation of the evidence. Please explain it as clearly and completely as you can in the space provided (~100-150 words). (max. 2 pts)

 

 

 

Finally, read carefully the following information and answer the last two questions.

 

In a new study, Cheng et al. (2011) recently described a new genotyping technique —a way to discover the genotype of the sample— by which amphibian museum specimens can be tested for the presence of chytrid fungus through a simple swab. This DNA-based technique uses the polymerase chain reaction (PCR)2 to detect the presence of Bd DNA in the skin of specimens, and can be used for specimens collected up to 50 years ago.

  1. Please read carefully and as many times as needed. How would you use this new tool to help understand the causes of enigmatic amphibian declines knowing that many museums have been collecting specimens from Central and South America for decades? Provide a specific example or scenario of where and for what purpose, you could use this technique. (For example, what would you test for and in what populations? What would you expect to find, and what would it mean?). (max. 3 pts)

 

  1. Please read carefully and as many times as needed. How might new evidence from using PCR on specimens from several decades ago strengthen or reject the hypotheses above? Describe how new evidence could be used to produce data to strengthen each hypothesis, and what data that would be. Explain. (max. 6 pts) —-PCR is a molecular technique used to amplify specific fragments of DNA. If the chytrid fungus is present on a frog specimen, chytrid DNA fragments will be amplified with the PCR.

Introduction

It is WMU’s ongoing effort to recruit and retain students. President Montgomery asked your help to find ways to attract additional 500 students in 12 months starting 7/1/2018. Since state funding has been shrinking, there is not much money available for this project. There may be many ideas to accomplish this goal, and several of them can be done concurrently. In order to control the scope of this assignment, you will work on only one idea. Keep in mind that your idea should be implementable, with a clear result, and does not use tons of money (unless you have also identified funding sources for your idea).

 

Requirements

  1. Project scope statement
  2. Project requirements (business requirements, quality requirements, functional requirements, non-functional requirements, etc.) Clearly list these requirements in sub-sections.
  3. Your idea in detail.
  4. Double-check if your project constraints cover all three aspects of triple constraints.
  5. Assumptions must be reasonable. If they incur extra cost just to implement your project, then your project is not going to be feasible.
  6. Project risks. Make sure major project risks are included.
    Keep in mind that project risks are those issues that may happen during the project life cycle (i.e., there is a probability for a risk to happen). You will be able to manage them before they happen and when they happen. This is the reason for the risk management plan in later chapters.
  7. WBS (see breakdown techniques in KCH11)
    1. Feel free to present your WBS in bullet points or a hierarchical chart.
    2. WBS must have at least three levels of the breakdown below level one.
    3. Double-check if further decomposition is still needed for tasks at lowest level of WBS. Pay attention to the following rules we have discussed in KCH11 when determining if a work package needs a further breakdown:
      1. Do you think the actual work can be clearly defined at this level? If not, break it down further.
      2. Do you think a clear picture of budget can be defined at this level? If not, break it down further.
  • 80-hour rule
  1. Is the duration longer than the reporting period? Let’s assume that we need to report our project progress once a month.
  1. Each WBS item should be numbered.
  2. Pay special attention to the 100% rule. Points will be taken off if the WBS has missing tasks for the scope.
  1. Project schedule in MS Project. Note the following requirements for the schedule.
    1. Before working on this item it is very important to practice the exercises in the CCH book. Chapters 4, 5 and 6 are most related to this item of the assignment, but chapters 1 – 3 are there to get you ready for these later chapters.
    2. Make sure the project plan is complete (resources are assigned, durations are estimated, task dependencies are defined, etc.)
    3. Most students find it very useful to use automatically scheduled tasks for ALL tasks in the project plan. See the textbook or search online for how to set all tasks to be automatically scheduled BEFORE you enter the first task.
    4. There should be some resources that work less than 100% of capacity on your project. Build this into your project plan in MS Project.
    5. Define a resource named John Wilson who works in the morning only (8 a.m. – noon) during the weekdays.
    6. Define a resource named Jane Smith who has multiple off days in her calendar.
    7. Define Joe Johnson who works 10 hours a day Tuesday through Friday, but has Monday off.
    8. There should be cost resources defined and used.
    9. July 4th is a holiday. Make July 5th and July 6th non-working days to give the team a longer holiday.
    10. All resources defined should be assigned to one or more tasks. Some tasks may need multiple resources.
    11. Additional pointers and reading (CCH book):
      1. See p. 85 for how to handle equipment resources.
      2. See p. 61 for more about how task duration can be more accurately measured. Ask yourself what the 8/80 rule is.
    12. Paste a screenshot of project statistics (e.g., duration, start date, end date, cost, etc.) to MS Word. See CCH 1 & 2 for details.
