Site Analysis and Survey
After a successful consultation a site analysis and survey will need to be carried out. The success of the final design depends upon a thorough knowledge of the site.
The site analysis aims to describe the various features of a site. These include access, soil, existing plants, layout, views, orientation and existing features. There may be other matters to address such as TPO’s (Tree Preservation Orders). A qualified designer should be aware of all aspects of an existing site before any design begins.
A survey will accurately record the physical aspects of a site such as boundaries, utilities and levels. The survey is carried out by a professional land surveyor.
All subsequent drawings will develop from these initial investigations. The design process begins with the surveyors plan, site analysis and client brief.
