The purpose of feasibility studies is to establish whether the project is viable, help classify feasible options and assist in the development of other project documentation such as the business case, strategic brief and the project execution plan.
On complex projects, there may be a number of different feasibility studies carried out, sometimes requiring different skills, and considering issues such as:
The possibility that an environmental impact assessment will impact planning permission or other legal/ statutory approvals that change with little to no notice by Government Authorities
Analysis and alignment of a budget relative to client requirements and specifically the developer costs for Authorities, Legal cost for Project Contracts – SPA, HMA, TSA and Operating costs inclusive of Maintenance and Integration
The benchmarking of the product cost also includes for market place selling income and rental income.
Various stakeholders, statutory authorities and other third parties may need to be consulted in the preparation of feasibility studies.
