Space Needs Assessments
The space needs study answers these fundamental questions:
During the study, a thorough analysis of relevant factors to be taken into account is performed in order to test the extent of constraints, the potentials of the site, space program, available building technology, sustainability and the means of utilizing the budget to maximum effect. Options are then developed, compared and a preferred option is established. We aim to produce a document that will guide our client’s through the next stages of their project.
Site Planning (Analysis & Selection)
The program will define anticipated staffing and equipment needs, square footage, types and uses of interior rooms and areas, anticipated exterior and outbuilding features, and future expansion, as well as aesthetic goals for the project. Mechanical and electrical requirements are also included.
