An architectural feasibility study is to investigate and also evaluate a potential site plot or building. The study itself will clearly set out a brief history of the site or building, and the overall condition and significance. This will determine the constraints and opportunities. There are many qualities of work to think about when it comes to a feasibility study, such as; care taken to understand the site history and the context, many years of experience and knowledge to create inspiration. When it comes down to a feasibility study it is always important to put the clients best interests at heart first, providing them with many options and discussions. This will enable an architect to identify the sites potential uses and outline schemes that can be developed, costed and reviewed in regular meetings with the client. To conduct an architectural feasibility the first thing is to meet with the client (s) and discuss their ideas, their needs and wants. After it will be a visit to the site to conduct an initial site assessment. Designs will then be created on the plot/building. The designs are then used to explore the feasibility for the project before detailed costly and complex drawings. When undertaking an architectural feasibility study the development vision to be tested and examined. Each factor of the project can be examined through the study.
