Analyze Clients Needs / Functional Relationships
/ Program Goals and Alternatives / Project Delivery Method
One of the first steps in any project is to analyze
the client's needs and/or present facilities and operations to
determine where they fail to meet those needs. Landes-Benson-Parkins
can assist the client in determining the relationships of the
functions which will be performed in the new facility
and the size of the spaces which will house those functions.
Once the program goals are established, Landes·Benson·Parkins
can assist the client with decisions regarding the scope of the
project by providing projected cost and feasibility studies for
the various alternatives which may include renovation,
addition, or new facility.
At this time, LBP can assist the client in
determining which method of project delivery method - Traditional
Bid Process, Design/Build, Construction Management, or Partnering
- will best serve the client's needs.
Site Evaluation / Vehicular and Pedestrian Flow
/ Land Use Study
Landes-Benson-Parkins will evaluate selected
sites with regard to zoning, vehicular and pedestrian traffic,
topography, utilities, and soil conditions; and assist the client
in choosing the appropriate site for the planned facility. Site
plans will then be prepared showing the building with the
driveways, parking lots, service access, utilities,
etc. to determine the best land utilization.
