Find that you're spending much longer than planned on a feasibility study? Or that you have drifted into detailed design without formalising an appropriate form of appointment?



This practical guide details the benefits of a feasibility study. Once you've secured the commission, how do you ensure you're following current best practice?



Aimed at architects, it identifies the pitfalls involved in undertaking a feasibility study and explains how to set boundaries, organise the process and manage clients' aspirations.



By featuring recent live projects, alongside advice from successful architectural practices, it illustrates how a feasibility study can help achieve positive outcomes and avoid the dangers of a poorly defined brief and service proposal.



Presenting the client's, as well as the architect's, perspective, this publication highlights why a feasibility study is a sensible way of establishing viability prior to committing to a full-service commission. It underlines the significance of 'adding value' as an architect.
