Initial Site and Feasibility Studies

Initial Site and Feasibility Studies


Unlocking potential

Initial site analysis and design can prove invaluable when deciding to purchase or rebuild a home. We can assist by providing clients with a better understanding of the development potential of their site.

Our process is tailored to each situation and typically involves site visits, research on planning controls and the creation of a 3-D model of the site and surrounds to analyse impacts on surrounding properties as well as the development potential of a site.

Concept design studies are then developed to evaluate our client’s ambitions in relation to the opportunities and constraints of each site. This process can unlock opportunities to maximise  numerical, environmental and spatial outcomes for the site whilst meeting key planning objectives.

We frequently see well beyond obvious design solutions to make best use of each property.


Commercial Property Development
Creating value and managing risk

Each existing or potential property in an investment portfolio requires rigorous analysis to understand its full development capacity and subsequent potential for additional value.

A simple mathematical application of the planning controls may often be misleading as it fails to take into account the full complexity of a site’s specific physical, urban and natural conditions, or the possibility of overlapping and contradictory planning controls. We analyse these specific conditions and through design test a variety of planning, spatial and commercial opportunities.

Specialist consultant input and the early engagement of stakeholders can be critical to the process of unlocking development potential by maximising numerical, environmental and spatial outcomes in the context of achieving planning objectives.


Government Agencies
Shaping sustainable and liveable urban futures

Tzannes has provided urban design and architectural feasibility advice to many government and public institutions.

As part of this advice we have assisted in the preparation of planning policy, strategy and development controls as well as participated in design excellence assessments, particularly competition jury services. We have provided property assessments of public assets for development or disposal and advised on the design of urban infrastructure including major transport systems.

Our work has underpinned the orderly development of major urban precincts in Sydney, Newcastle and Canberra. Tzannes brings to government led development an acute understanding of financial, political and design considerations. We work collaboratively with our clients to deliver implementable design proposals that are in the public interest.
