A Feasibility Study normally consists of an appraisal of a site or an existing building, together with outline design work to establish whether and how a project can proceed.
Outputs from a Feasibility Study normally include :
- a brief written report
- a measured survey and drawings showing the existing site and/or premises
- one or more outline designs (as agreed at the outset); these are not complete in detail but are sufficient to establish the general plan and appearance of one or more options for further development
- an approximation of the cost of the works
- information on further information required and on any issues not fully addressed by the study
A Feasibility Study can also include by agreement :
- co-ordinating the specialist input of other consultants
- 3D visualisations (see the projects pages) and
- liasion with a Quantity Surveyor in the production of a detailed cost estimate
If your requirements are aready clear - especially when making minor alterations to existing premises, or when proposing a clearly defined new building on a site where there are unlikely to be planning difficulties, a Feasibility Study may not be required.
