NIFES Chartered Building Surveyors are often instructed to carry out feasibility studies for many different types of schemes. The feasibility studies can range from the reconfiguration and modernization of a dated 1000m2 office building to the space utilization and upgrade of a hospital ward or the construction of a new outpatient department to the relocation of a team of say 150 people to new locations.
The feasibility studies will look at all aspects of the buildings and any potential issues. The study will assess construction type, structure and fabric, electrical and mechanical installations and any relevant infrastructure issues. The study will offer recommendations on all best practice installations for modernization and upgrade schemes.
