Dillingham Ranch

Project Description
A 2,500-acre cattle ranch with a 150-horse boarding facility, equestrian center, 300-acre coconut tree plantation, local water district and 10-room inn overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii.

Scope of Work
DWC conducted a comprehensive analysis of the property. As part of the accounting, DWC analyzed contracts and renegotiated with a variety of vendors and suppliers. In order to rehabilitate and operate the asset on a limited budget, DWC implemented stringent business and cash management plans. Additionally, DWC coordinated with various County agencies to resolve environmental concerns, permitting and planning issues, as well as issues related to operation of the local water district. DWC helped to assess, quantify, and remediate environmental concerns relating to past property uses (land fill, horse pasture) and potential groundwater contamination, and was able to remediate any environmental issues in order to enhance the sale value of the property. DWC was able to preserve the property’s assets which resulted in a successful sale for above the expected sale price.
