A Proposal for Consulting Services Implementation and Design Program for Fukuoka Sea Life Park


Fukuoka-ken (Japan); Public marine aquariums; Design; Business planning; Economic research


In July 1988, Harrison Price Company completed an analysis of the feasibility of developing a world class oceanarium in Fukuoka, Kyushu, Japan. The findings were strongly positive and it was concluded that operating profits would support an order of magnitude investment of $300 million, which in turn, would be sufficient to construct the finest marine life park in the world. The study concluded that the next steps to be taken in the implementation process would be: 1) Refinement and development of the attractions and exhibit content of the proposed park as a prelude to design development, 2) Preparation of design schematics, and a physical master plan from which accurate construction costs would be prepared, 3) Preparation of comprehensive operating and capital budgets, along with an implementation program for the project.
