Understanding development risks, early!

Thorough, accurate desktop studies are an integral part of new site investigations and play an essential role in determining if a site is suitable for development.

They’re also vital for identifying any remediation work that might be needed, and can provide an assessment of possible abnormal development risks prior to property and land purchase.

At Alan Wood & Partners, our teams are fastidious in hunting down every detail about a site, and this, alongside a visual assessment, enables them to produce in-depth desktop studies.

Once completed, developers are able to cost potential abnormals, and make vital decisions at an early stage, avoiding wasted spend and future delays to the construction programme.
