This type of study is usually concerned with testing the capacity and viability of a plot of land or an existing building. Using our extensive knowledge, we can quickly test the quantum likely to be possible to enable clients to test the economic viability of a particular proposal.
Using urban design principles, we can quickly model various massing options for a particular quantum of developments, and with an understanding of the Planning context, can produce concepts to aid early communication with the Local Authority.
We are able to analyse any site, be it rural or urban, and asses the importance of aspects of access (pedestrian/vehicular), servicing, pattern of building use, pattern of urban grain / height, historical grain and references along with existing site constraints to provide a background study to help minimise the risks of developing more detailed designs.
