Site Assessment & Design

Our built environment is flooded with glass boxes that could be located anywhere, while many of the most successful and celebrated examples of architecture reflect and respond to unique site features. Whether or not a design team has a say in siting a project, carefully assessing the site should be on every project’s to-do list. Careful consideration of these factors can inform design and support not only sustainable design objectives but also the basic architecture of the building: onsite climate conditions unique weather patterns solar access water opportunities unique flora and fauna topography A site assessment early in design can reduce costs, allay potential risks, support the health and well-being of occupants and native habitat, and promote other unique site features.
