Architectural Feasibility Studies

We take pride in offering our clients an in-depth and versatile feasibility study aimed at ensuring that every aspect of their project is meticulously evaluated and planned.

Our service begins with a thorough on-site evaluation, followed by a comprehensive study of site context, existing planning conditions (if any), legal covenants, planning constraints, and potential environmental impacts.

We consider every possible facet, including density options, construction costs, anticipated project duration, return on investment, and other potential market trends that might inflate costs or demand.

Each feasibility study is accompanied by a detailed report, informing you of the various opportunities and challenges they might encounter along the way.

What is a

Feasibility Study?

An architectural feasibility study, as its name suggests, is a feasibility study that examines the practicability of a proposed project, idea, or plan. It delves into the details of whether a project is technically achievable, financially justifiable, and economically viable, taking into consideration all factors at play – legal requirements, site conditions, market trends, potential risks, and more.
 
In an architectural context, a feasibility study involves a comprehensive evaluation of a site’s potential or a building’s capacity for redevelopment or renovation. We closely scrutinise site constraints, contextual relationships, regulatory compliance, environmental impact, construction methodology, and potential return on investment where there are commercial interests involved.
 
The feasibility study acts as a pivotal decision-making tool, enabling clients to thoroughly understand their project’s feasibility from multiple perspectives – be it architectural, economic, or regulatory. Therefore, this step acts as a point of focus, influencing the project’s trajectory and overall success.

Our expansive knowledge and extensive experience ensures that your project begins on a solid foundation.

Development of preliminary design options based on the project’s requirements and constraints.

Evaluation of the viability of the designs with regards to planning policy, building regulations and the construction process.
