Carter-Zub - Design feasibility studies

Feasibility studies are preliminary studies undertaken in the very early stage of a project. They tend to be carried out when a project is large or complex, or where there is some doubt or controversy regarding the proposed development. If an environmental impact assessment (EIA) is required, this may involve assessments best undertaken as part of feasibility studies.  

The purpose of feasibility studies is to:  

  • Establish whether the project is viable.

  • Help identify feasible options.

  • Assist in the development of other project documentation such as the business case, project execution plan and strategic brief.

  • Planning permission.

  • The likelihood that an environmental impact assessment will be required.

  • Other legal / statutory approvals.

  • Analysis of the budget relative to client requirements.

  • Assessment of the potential to re-use existing facilities or doing nothing rather than building new facilities.

  • Assessment of any site information provided by the client.
