Site planning
Pain Points

Having explained your requirements to the architecture team but you couldn’t give them much information yourself?

The architecture team designs are beautiful, but it does not follow the guidelines you set for the projects. Or do you just want something quick, so you have something for your brochure? Are you limited by the output from the architect and need to test many design iterations quickly?

Site planning
Our Solution

Why not create a base design or information package and share this with your architect so you can provide a lot more information on what you would like to create on the site. This way, you and the architecture team can save time. Allowing you to test many options and compare
them side by side.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Answering your most frequent queries

What is site planning?

Whenever building design or urban design processes start, a site is to be selected, or it is appointed. Site planning is assigning functions to spaces in a site to properly utilise all the resources at disposal. It includes processes of research, analysis and finally, a synthesis of the results found. It includes a detailed study of various aspects like location and neighbourhood context. The zoning of the neighbourhood is crucial as it determines by-laws according to the purpose of the space. The by-laws include the FAR, ground coverage, parking norms, and restrictions. The subsurface features and climate analysis of the location help the design to be climate responsive. Circulation is examined to study important roads and linkages. Availability of utilities is also a factor checked upon under site planning. Along with this, the socio-cultural background study is also done to make the study the population.

What is site planning in urban planning?

Urban planning is a process focusing on development and design of land use and built environment, it also includes a whole set of social and economic activities. Whereas site planning is a subset of urban planning, arrangement and development of site of elements, like buildings, roadways, subplots, utilities, landscape elements, topography, water features, and vegetation. Site Planning is generally done by city planners to develop and design a clear organizational interior and exterior plan for a community.

What are the stages of site planning

“The art of arranging structures on the land and shaping the spaces between; an art linked to architecture, engineering, landscape architecture and city planning” by Kevin Lynch. Kevin Lynch outlines eight stages of site planning. The first one is defining the problem. This includes analysis of brief and requirements are given, and then to define a problem. The second stage is programming and the analysis of the site and user. This gives the idea of how could the site be addressed. Schematic design and cost estimate gives a preliminary idea of cost and design. Developed design and detailed costing confirm everything required for the design. Preparing contract documents with designs and cost estimates is stage five. Stage six is bidding and contracting. Stage seven is the construction of the building according to the site, followed by stage eight, followed by occupation and management of the building or space.
