Data, Data, Data: The Basics of Site Research
Site research is not for the faint of heart. Our architects pour endless hours of painstaking research into compiling data-driven reports on behalf of our clientele. On any given lot, we will dive into the fine print of:
- Geographic location
- Site boundaries and dimensions
- Circulation and accessibility
- Climate conditions
- Legal information
- And more
All of these minute details will have a direct impact on the future construction and long-term operation of your new-build. Therefore, each one deserves careful attention and thoughtful consideration—and that’s precisely what our architects offer.
The Site Visit
Analyzing the black-and-white data of your site on paper is important, but nothing beats the power of an in-person visit. Once our architects have done the background research, we’ll wait for a good-weather day to tour the lot. Equipped with professional cameras, we’ll take pictures of every view from every angle. We’ll take measurements and note sensory details. This firsthand look at the site will go a long way in contributing to a design that blends in seamlessly with the area. Our architects will capitalize on every site advantage and develop design solutions to workaround every site-specific challenge.
Creating an Informative Site Diagram
Finally, our architectural staff will synthesize the large quantity of our data into visual diagrams to present our findings to you. These diagrams will represent the site’s features using an easy-to-read legend. It can be challenging to digest the whole trove of information in one document, which is why our team will walk you through the visual indicators and their significance one by one. Together, we’ll discuss the site’s overall feasibility and offer invaluable insight into each detail.
