For any relatively complex project, Pinnacle Consulting, Inc will perform a Feasibility Survey to investigate the overall viability of the proposed project. Such a study is designed to analyze the project from financial, enviromental, and overall business standpoints. Feasibility surveys are designed to objectively review the details of a project and provide decision makers with the details and information to make an informed decision. Often, this work offers comfort and peace of mind to those deciding whether or not to move forward with a project.
Feasibility surveys include a SWOT analysis of a proposed venture, meaning its Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. Our experiences professionals are highly trained in the areas of environmental considerations, labor and materials, construction practices, real estate and location limitations, and numerous other items to evaluate.
Feasibility studies generally precede any technical or design work. In simplest form, a feasibility survey provides a sound and rational review of a project’s costs versus the value to be obtained. To this end, we perform careful review of any historical records, accounting statements and financial information, industry and competitor analysis, and other items of concern.
There are eight general areas of feasibility analysis we are concerned with:
- Technology and system feasibility
- Operational feasibility
- Schedule feasibility
- Market and real estate feasibility
- Resource feasibility
- Cultural feasibility
- Financial feasibility
- Legal feasibility
