The Turner Group has worked with numerous clients to develop concept plans and opinions of costs for design options. Many of these options are based on building new facilities or conducting renovations and building additions.
We can provide design solutions and opinions of cost for each of these solutions that meet the needs of the client. The opinions of costs are based on initial cost of construction, overall building envelope, and performance of the building over time.
The Turner Group has a holistic approach to assessing existing facilities. There are two main parts to the Feasibility Assessment: the facilities assessment and feasibility of occupants program.
During the facilities assessment, the Turner Group has a team of architects, engineers, and building scientists on-site to visually inspect the condition of the facility and all building code issues. Each of the design professionals will focus on their area of specialty. All team members will be on-site at the same time to work together and collaborate on items that may require multiple disciplines. At the end of this study, a report will be prepared with all items found, recommendations to fix these items, life span until upgrade is needed, and approximate cost to fix or replace items.
The second part is to meet with the occupants to better understand how their spaces currently work and how they could be adjusted to meet their future needs. This could involve adding space, moving space, or making current spaces more efficient. Based on these meetings, we will prepare a spreadsheet to show square footage of both current space needs and the space needs of any other desired options.
