Business Model

sustainable lifestyles as a service

Consumers get instant and permanent access to a hassle-free sustainable lifestyle without the headaches that come with household level solar panels, battery packs, water purifiers, grey water systems, smart meters, and recycling programs. 

Innovative Model

Modular

Our business model for sustainable lifestyles as a service is based on a proprietary design of deeply integrated modular decentralized infrastructure combined with master-planned communities that provide consumers instant and permanent access to the hassle-free sustainable lifestyle they desire.

Scalable

The modular platform is scaled up simply by increasing the number of units deployed, thus eliminating repetitive engineering, streamlining the entitlement process, and increasing our speed-to-market while lowering risk and avoiding the dreaded requirement of installing expensive backbone infrastructure.  

repeatable

Standardizing a sustainable infrastructure platform allows us to standardize neighborhood scale projects. In turn, this enable us to standardize our finance deal flow.  Repeating a successful deal structure captures economies of scale and overcomes barriers to deploying funds across a pipeline of projects.

Increased Profit and Improved Operations

Lower Land Costs

Building self-contained communities with modular solutions increases profitability by allowing us to locate projects beyond the municipal service areas where land is less expensive, but desirable natural amenities abound.

No Backbone Installation

The stand-alone infrastructure platform allows us to avoid the dreaded installation of costly backbone infrastructure that normally comes with locating beyond the electric, water, gas, and sewage grid.

Easier Entitlements

Standardized modular solutions that have previously been approved for building permits make the entitlement process quick and easy. Gone are the tedious engineering tasks and permit applications that plague competitors.

Speed to Market

The business model allows us to leap-frog over site constraints and the bottleneck of permits posed by the lack of municipal infrastructure, thus increasing our "speed to market".

Lower Risk and Cap Ex

The business model controls more aspects of the development process, lowers costs, diversifies income sources, reduces the time-exposure of capital and lowers overall risk.

Benefits of the model

creating and delivering value

Combining real estate development with our sustainable decentralized infrastructure platform creates tremendous values well beyond the sum of the parts. The business model produces a unique value through self-controlled resources, then removes industry constraints and barriers for delivering that value, while creating a unique value proposition that allows us to efficiently capture that value.

Our business model is an improvement over the traditional real estate development model in several important ways:

1. We are able to lower our land cost by locating on raw land un-serviced by utility grids.

2. We convert the usual up front cost centers of infrastructure into long-term profit centers via self-owned resources .
3. We diversify and strengthen our income model with the addition of multiple new products and services.
4. We eliminate uncertainty and delays posed by the entitlement process.
5. We leap-frog over the barriers of overburdened or non existent utility service infrastructure.
6. We reduce risk and lower the capital requirements of master planned community development via standardized pre-engineered modular infrastructure.

From the consumer's view Sustainable Lifestyle Communities are far superior to a traditional neighborhood. They perform better and are less expensive to operate for the homeowner while providing a dependable sustainable and resilient supply of their most critical resources. 

We are building master planned communities at some of the world's most beautiful locations where our residents live sustainable lifestyles surrounded by pristine natural environments and outdoor recreational opportunities. We endeavor to integrate the essence of each location and deliver memorable customer experiences that inspire, invigorate, entertain and educate while providing the meaningful escapes, unscripted discoveries and the immersion in nature that our customers desire.

monitizing

Our proprietary modular infrastructure systems are monetized through our "Sustainable Lifestyles as a Service" business model.

We build, own and manage all infrastructure with resident home owners under long-term service and supply agreements resulting in asset-backed income streams and attractive financial returns.

Contract rates increase over time above inflationary adjustments while cost factors remain steady or even decrease over time. We monitor, maintain, and upgrade systems to maximize return on investment. After certain pre-agreed financial return hurdles are met, residents are given an opportunity to slowly acquire equity interest in the systems by applying some or all of the savings realized on their water, energy, food, and fuel.

Built in tandem with our real estate development projects our sustainable infrastructure systems produce and deliver all required utilities and services by capturing and converting all waste, sewage and trash and using only the renewable resources on site.

This is a modular and scalable system creating a sustainable, zero waste, carbon positive neighborhood that liberates our residents from the global supply chain for their most critical resources. 

"Sustainable Lifestyles as a Service" provides home buyers with the hassle-free sustainable lifestyle they desire and creates additional profit centers for our company while delivering positive social and environmental impacts that address some very important global issues.

NextGenUrban is creating the first institutional quality real estate portfolio comprised of self-built "Sustainable Lifestyle Communities" to be united under the NextGenUrban brand.
