If there's one thing your team should do to ensure long-term success for your next project, it's to start with a Feasibility Assessment. The Turner Group's holistic approach to assessing existing facilities empowers project owners to gain a better understanding of what is needed for their space, and what action items should be prioritized. This, in turn, enables you to construct the most accurate budget and timeline for your project long before breaking ground.
What is a Feasibility Assessment?
Feasibility Assessments are comprised of two main parts: the facilities assessment and feasibility of occupants program.
During the facilities assessment, the Turner Group has a team of architects, engineers, and building scientists on-site to visually inspect the condition of the facility and all building code issues. Each of the design professionals will focus on their area of specialty. All team members will be on-site at the same time to work together and collaborate on items that may require multiple disciplines. At the end of this study, a report will be prepared with all items found, recommendations to fix these items, life span until upgrade is needed, and approximate cost to fix or replace items.
The second part is to meet with the occupants to better understand how their spaces currently work and how they could be adjusted to meet their future needs. This could involve adding space, moving space, or making current spaces more efficient. Based on these meetings, we will prepare a spreadsheet to show square footage of both current space needs and the space needs of any other desired options.
