February 27, 2023by Sterling Homes0

The process of designing and constructing a commercial or residential building does not just commence out rightly.

There are many crucial factors and stages involved that will enable you to have the perfect or ideal building that fits your lifestyle.

Below are the most important things that you must bear in mind if you want to have a good site to design and construct any building.

Traffic Counts & Access
A traffic impact study can serve as a key role in evaluating potential development sites. Showing the surrounding streets whether they’re main arteries, avenues, or dead ends—will help illustrate the impact the design of your project will have on the traffic around the site.

Environmental Factor
The topography of the land will determine how you move forward with your project, so it’s important to choose a site with less porous soil and levelled with uniform slopes from one end to the other, so as to provide good and quick drainage of rainwater.

Policies and Regulations
No matter where you want your site, there will be government regulations to consider. Some sites have government limitations bounding on them, such as vacant space that must be left in the front and sides of the site, the proportion of the plot that should be built on, and the required height of the building that must be erected. Learning the laws and following them effectively will ensure that your project is within state and federal law.

Natural Features
The gift of nature offers value and aesthetics to a site when it is properly utilized. There must be unhindered access to natural light and air wherever the site is situated. Determine the direction of the wind and construct a climatologically responsive building that the inhabitants will find comfortable.

Endeavour to know the address and every piece of vital information about the place the site is situated.
..Can the site be located via Google Maps?
..Is it easily accessible?
Being able to find answers to questions, will give you a head start.
