Ensuring your site is suitable for development is one of the first steps that should be completed when preparing for any housing project. This may be as simple as reviewing your site layout and recommending the best house fit for your land, or more in-depth analysis of the section and any factors that may impact your ability to complete further development.

To provide peace of mind, our In-house Design team can create a customised report for your site that will ensure you are able to make informed decisions about your project, and move forward with the confidence that you will avoid any unplanned or costly surprises.

Feasibility Studies

The purpose of a Feasibility Study is to give you a greater understanding of the costs you will face undertaking a project, be it a relocation, an on-site shift or a broader building project. This will in turn allow you to identify whether the project is a feasible financial investment.

There are two options here:

Desktop Feasibility Study

By using price guidelines as provided by Local Councils and Suppliers as well as our own expertise, we can provide a Desktop Feasibility Study that calculates a rough cost based on the specifics for your project.

This is a useful tool if you are needing financial guidance for your bank or lender, or are new to the Relocation game and want a better overview of the types of costs you may encounter.

Please note this is an estimate only and for more accurate figures, a Due Diligence Feasibility Report can be conducted.

Due Diligence Feasibility Study

This report gives you the most accurate cost estimates you can receive to ensure completion of your project within budget. Our team will use site visits, set plans and design layouts to find the actual costs for all services required. Additionally, they will look at the infrastructure and associated costs – such as trees, power poles etc that might need to be removed or handled.
