Our team understands your goals and then assists you in selecting the right site. The criteria for site selection is the Location, Climatic Conditions, Distance from the suppliers and the market, cost and size of the project. On the basis of your organizational goals we would get an idea about the prospective building design which would be a crucial factor in identifying the right site. The neighbours are also a crucial factor in site selection. A magnificent building surrounded by ordinary structures may stand out but may not be a run away commercial success.
One of the biggest mistake that is done is not having an architect on board before selecting the site. In most of the cases the site is selected and purchased before you hire an architect. The following teams should be working in close co-ordination before you choose and finalize a site - market research team, architectural team and the project team. Wrong site selection can ruin your business and hit the bottom line. You do not want to be stuck with a project which fails to take off despite your best efforts and one of the key factor could be the site.
A commercial building will house several organizations with large workforce and therefore the site should be selected keeping in mind the accessibility of the building through public and private transport. The traffic pattern must also be kept in mind as traffic jams along the route will ruin the reputation of the building and ultimately the prospective prices of space would go down resulting in huge losses for the builder. Many of these organizations would be dealing with customers and would like their branding to be visible. Visibility of the building from a distance is another important criteria for site selection.
A large number of patients visit the hospital outpatient department and not all of them commute through their personal transport. A lot of these patients come through public transport and therefore the distance from train station, bus station, airport and internal city bus station is extremely important for hospital site selection. The ambulances have to rush the patients to the hospital and therefore competing with commercial buildings for space is not a good idea for a hospital building . The hospital should be closer to the residential areas and away from commercial areas to save time in transporting critical patients from home to the hospital.
Budget hotels should be located closer to the bus and train stations so that the budget traveller can come easily, corporate hotels should be closer to commercial buildings so that the corporate traveller can save time in commuting. The corporate hotels can also be closer to the airport so that the travelling executive can land at the airport, check into the hotel and keep all the meetings at the hotel itself. Leisure luxury hotels should be far away from the din of the daily life and closer to the nature be it sea, river, forest, mountains etc. The hotel should not be very far from the commuting points like the train, bus stations or the airport.
Neighbourhood is one of the most important criteria in selecting a residential site be it a private bungalow or a gated group housing. Most people would love to have cultural homogeniety while selecting a residence for themselves. A sprawling bungalow amongst thatched houses is not a good idea as the owner would always be a target of envy. Group housing requires to be closer to public transport so that the last mile connectvity is not a problem. Any site within 500 meters of a metro station or city bus station would be a great hit with the potential home buyers.
