Home Project Development Feasibility Study

Feasibility Study


Because many factors shape a project, our first step is always the feasibility study. Knowing where your project will be impacted by regulatory and logistical parameters provides proper direction, and avoids wasted money and time on both our parts pursuing ideas that can’t receive approval. This is a small first-step while also being a wise initial investment.

  • We will review all the documentation you have, and then obtain copies of all the files your town hall has on your property.
  • Knowing exactly what existing septic disposal system conditions are and verifying that your municipality’s records are complete is usually key. Sometimes soil testing and civil engineering may come into play.
  • We serve several communities and each locality has its own bylaws and regulations with which we must be familiar.
  • If there are issues or questions on lot configuration, we may need to arrange for a survey to create a certified plot plan.
  • If site conditions and topography could have significant bearing, a topographical plan may be called for.
  • If you are in a private district or association, its restrictions must be reviewed and followed.
  • We’ll need to know existing utilities conditions and constraints. If any issues of concern are present, we may contact utilities providers to determine and create a plan of action for any needed modifications.

Knowing all this will allow us to design an approach that works and can confidently be expected to receive required approvals. On the rare occasion that some conditions exist that render your hoped-for project to be unworkable, we will know that early and without expending effort and hopes only for later disappointment.
