A Feasibility - Master Plan becomes a strong foundation from which to make decisions to proceed forward with your building program.
A feasibility - master plan from Wardergroup will incorporate a number of important features.
1. Preliminary Cost Estimate – to construct at today’s price.
2. Building Sketch Plan – showing the preliminary floor plan of the proposed buildings or additions, with side views of the building from the exterior (elevations).
3. Preliminary Site Plan – created by our associated civil engineer. This site plan would show a footprint of any current building, parking and general site layout as well as the footprint of what is being planned now and possibly later.
4. Written Report – addressing a range of zoning, preliminary county and other jurisdictional obstacles, and other considerations that must be incorporated into the final project planning and budgeting.
There are four major objectives to the Feasibility - Master Plan Phase
***To create a visual representation of enough design and layout features so that the decision makers and the congregation can see their vision. We will provide an architectural quality drawing suitable for framing and presenting to the membership.
***To enable the Building Committee and Congregation to define what they want, need, and are allowed to build. A dream is one thing. The reality may be different.
***To understand the approximate cost to build, in order to determine if and where the necessary funds can be obtained.
***To create a plan, not necessarily just for now, but for the future generations, so the Building Committee and Congregation can plan the creation of their entire vision, one affordable step at a time.
One cannot underestimate the importance of this part of the Feasibility/Master plan process. If you are planning for more construction down the road, you won’t want what you are doing now to overlap or interfere with what you are planning for later. For example, if not accurately planned, parts of Phase One might have to be torn down in order build Phase Two. Or, Phase Two might not realistically fit on the lot after Phase One is built.
It is always best to plan in advance. This way, you are planning not just for the present, but for future generations as well.
Wardergroup would be happy to make a Feasibility - Master Plan a priority for you!
