A feasibility study is an early-stage assessment into the viability of a construction project to meet the end needs of a developer. Cost Consultants are often involved in feasibility studies to provide expert cost advice on a range of matters related to the project.

A construction feasibility study offers several benefits in evaluating the viability of a construction project. Some of the key benefits include:

Early Problem Identification: A feasibility study helps identify potential challenges and problems that may arise during the construction project. By conducting a thorough analysis, stakeholders can spot issues early on and develop mitigation strategies to address them.

Risk Assessment: Feasibility studies assess the potential risks associated with the construction project, such as technical, environmental, regulatory, and financial risks. This allows stakeholders to understand the risks involved and make informed decisions to minimise and manage them effectively.

Cost Estimation and Budget Planning: Feasibility studies help estimate the costs involved in the construction project and determine its financial feasibility. By conducting a detailed analysis of the project scope and requirements, stakeholders can develop an accurate budget plan and allocate resources effectively.

Market Analysis: Feasibility studies include market analysis, evaluating factors such as demand, competition, and market trends. This analysis provides insights into the market conditions and helps determine the potential success and profitability of the project.

Decision-Making Tool: Feasibility studies provide stakeholders with valuable information to make informed decisions regarding the project. This includes evaluating the benefits, disadvantages, and constraints, helping decision-makers determine whether to proceed with the project or explore alternative options.

Stakeholder Alignment: Conducting a feasibility study allows for effective communication and alignment among stakeholders. It provides a platform to discuss and evaluate different aspects of the construction project, leading to a shared understanding and consensus among stakeholders.

It is important to note that the specific benefits of a construction feasibility study may vary depending on the project and its unique circumstances. However, overall, a feasibility study serves as a crucial tool in assessing the viability and potential success of a construction project.
