With every proposed venture a good business plan is essential. Likewise, with every proposed development a good Feasibility Study at the outset will steer decisions for any site, be that the range of development or indeed the approach to a particular type of project.
The Constraints for a site range from the obvious drainage, water supply and adequate road visibility and access to flooding, ground conditions, electricity supply or presence of high tension lines, rights of way, Development Plan proposals for roads, etc. In our Feasibility Analysis we examine cut and fill volumes and whether material is required to be imported or exported off site. Constructability is a hugely important cost factor and issues such as proximity to other developments, ease of access for cranes and machinery and local availability of materials play an important role. Topical issues in site selection include sustainability such as the possibility of on-site power from wind generation.
