In addition to the specific training provided for the use of Optimix, we can provide training on a variety of topics, including:
- The development process
- How to carry out financial appraisals of a development scheme
- The factors underpinning financial viability
Training can be integrated into a wider package of work delivered by Beacon Partnership. This could include training on how to create and interpret financial appraisals as part of training on the use of Optimix or to help embed new policies and procedures developed by Beacon Partnership.

Unlocking Unviable Sites
With rising works costs and wider financial uncertainty, it is becoming increasingly difficult to develop financially viable schemes. We are aware of the challenges faced by Local Authorities and Registered Providers in delivering their development programmes. A training workshop run by Beacon Partnership and FBM Architects to help you understand how to identify unviable schemes, how design and tenure type can contribute to viability and strategies for developing a viable scheme.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Optimix – Basic Introduction
These sessions are for people that are new to Optimix. The session covers inputting schemes and analysing performance of schemes and individual unit types. The session will include an overview of assumptions, finacnial hurdles and reporting.
Optimix – Intermediate
These sessions are for people that can already input a basic scheme but want to learn about more advanced features. The session will cover using Optimix for stock transfers, incorporating rent loss from demolition, adjusting cashflows for income strips and/or taxation. It will also cover importing old appraisals and creating bespoke input and output sheets
Optimix – Consolidator
This session covers consolidations of schemes and phases using the Optimix Consolidator. It will cover reporting on monthly/annual spend, completions, programme viability and importing into HRA and RP business plans.
Building a basic viability model
In this fast paced session we will build a basic rented viability model from scratch in excel and explain how the model is put together. By the end of the session attendees should understand the inputs and assumptions that feed into a viability model and how they combine to produce and calculate loan calculations and net present value.
Building Shared Ownership Appraisals
In this fast paced session we will build a basic shared ownership viability model from scratch in excel and explain how the model is put together. By the end of the session attendees should understand the inputs and assumptions that feed into a viability model and how they combine to produce and calculate loan calculations and net present value.
In this 2 hour session we will build a basic Shared Ownership appraisal in front of attendees. We’ll run through how shared ownership works and why it typically performs so well in NPV terms compared to other tenures.
