Purpose of the Feasibility Study

  • A high-level effort designed to assemble necessary information as a precursor to more detailed planning
  • Provides the framework necessary to move the project forward into the more detailed planning process
  • An iterative process where stakeholders from various groups provide input and feedback throughout the development of the study
  • Development of a program statement that articulates the program rationale including intended goals of the program
  • Defines components, functions and/or activities of the program, which are intended to accomplish the goals and meet the identified programmatic needs
  • Defines the approximate size of each space, requirements of the space, quantity of each space type, number of people, programs, anticipated utilization and functional adjacencies
  • Preliminary conceptual cost assessment, potential location scenarios and recommendations—new construction (building or addition) and/or renovations to existing building
