Transcript of SITE ANALYSIS

Step 1 - Establish the Development Context
Step 2 - Understand the Site
Step 3 - Prepare a Site Analysis Plan

Site Analysis Requirements
Planning and Development Objectives of the Site Clarifying the Development Plan requirements.
Relationship of the Site to the Local Environment
Relationship of the Site to Adjoining Properties
Physical Characteristics of the Site

Step 1 - Establish the Development

identifying and explaining graphically:
a) The key influences on the design
b) How the proposed development will relate to the immediate surroundings.

Step 2 - Understand the Site

Step 3 - Prepare a Site Analysis Plan

The site visit is one of the first things in the design process. After the completion of a site visit, a detailed site analysis has to be done so as to really grasp the features of the site, which will be very important during the design. Here are some of the points one must pay attention during the site visit as well as during the site analysis and study.

*Temperature & sun path
*Soil type & condition
*Vegetation & natural features
*Infrastructure facilities
*Surrounding land uses & buildings
*Prominent vision lines / visual linkages
*Locally available resources

What is involved in a site analysis?
The purpose of the site analysis is to record and evaluate information on the site and its surroundings, and to use this evaluation in the design response.
Site analysis is more than just collecting information about the site.
The site analysis should identify issues that will influence the design of a development in order to make a considered response to both site opportunities and constraints, to provide a good quality living environment, and respect, acknowledge and improve the character of the area.
*The site analysis results in a site context plan, which is then used as a prompt in developing the design for the site.
a) Orientation, direction and angle of slope

How does the sun move across the site?

b) Trees and other significant vegetation

*Are there any trees or other significant vegetation on site (including shrubs, grasses etc).
*Are there any opportunities to include these assets as features of the development?

c) Buildings
Indicate existing buildings on your site.
Are they worth retaining and incorporating in the development

d) Facilities and Utilities

Note the location of services, including the facilities and utilities including the street poles, pits, garbage storage sheds, landscaping and others surrounding the building

e) boundaries and easements
*Where are the boundaries and easements?
*Will the development be contained within the lease boundaries with setbacks?

The location and use of surrounding buildings

*What height are the buildings?
*What implications are there for your development, for example in relation to limiting potential overlooking or overshadowing, protection of views or setbacks for landscaping?

The built form, scale and character or surrounding
and nearby development

* Is there any obvious character to the streetscape or village in
terms of height, bulk, setback, building detailing or vegetation
character that can help influence or guide your design

f) Access points
Where is the potential access to your site?
Where do neighbours access their site?
What are the street and on-site parking conditions?

g) Building Element
