Whether home or business, before you purchase, it can be a wise move to obtain a professional analysis of the site you are considering. We look at the myriad of issues affecting building design, soils quality (including bearing capacity and seismic issues), solar orientation, site access, regulatory issues (including local, state and federal requirements), jurisdictional permitting requirements, and such things as wetlands issues, tree ordinances, utility availability, setbacks and easements.
In addition to the above, we review your initial programming requirements and insure the building size you require and the necessary parking and lot coverage restrictions will fit the site. This due diligence process can solidify your purchase decision, or save you thousands of dollars and prevent the misfortune of buying a piece of ground that will not work for the uniqueness of your home or business.
