One of our most popular services is our “feasibility package“.

Our designers will visit your home and talk through your ideas with you. They will discuss possible ways for you to create your vision.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Feasiblity Study?

MAPL will analyse your property and project needs to determine whether your project is feasible. This is achieved with a feasibility survey, discussion with yourselves and a desktop study, after which the findings are presented as a feasibility report.

Why Do I Need A Feasibility Study?

With a feasibility study, your needs can be fully recognised and we can identify the unique aspects of your property. From this, we can ensure that you end up with the best solution to achieve your project requirements.

You will gain clear, relevant and professional advice, leaving you feeling confident about what to expect and how to proceed with you project.

What If I Already Know What I Want, Do I still Need A Feasibility Study?

You may or may not have an idea of what to do. Even so, the feasibility study will take a fresh look at what options are available to you.

The feasibility will also provide you with an understanding of how the process works, what to expect and how long it will take.

You can rest assured that you will receive a recommended solution that works best for you. It will meet your needs, be cost effective and be achievable technically based on our expert knowledge.

How Is The Feasibility Survey Carried Out?

The feasibility survey, or feasibility meeting, will take place at your home for a time and date that is suitable for you. The main objective is to understand your requirements and answer any initial questions that you may have.

We will sit down with you, listen and provide some relevant guidance and advice where necessary. This is often followed by a quick tour of the area of your home which you would like to develop. We will take a few measurements, but nothing obtrusive, and possibly some photographs with your permission.

Should you wish to proceed into the design stages, we will collect all information in detail at that time.

The feasibility survey often takes around half an hour yet rest assured that we are always available to answer any questions you may have after the meeting.

What Do I Get Within The Feasibility Report?

As everyone’s building project is unique, a feasibility report will be issued that is relevant to you. The report will explore relevant options and provide a recommendation. It will also contain concept sketches, cost estimates, timeline predictions and explain how to process works.

In addition to the above, ‘further knowledge’ will be provided to help you gain a better understanding of the processes and options available should you wish, such as a description of each statutory approval, options to accelerate the timeline etc.

When I Receive The Feasibility Report, Can I Make Changes To The Recommended Concept?

Absolutely – the recommended concept is seen as a way to prove that your project is viable. Yet, you will certainly have the opportunity to make changes or go with a different solution altogether should you wish.

We understand how important the overall spaces to be created are to you, along with the costs associated with the works. Also, it is our philosophy to think designs through and ensure they work before we ever propose them. So, you can be confident that the recommended concept is comprehensive enough to allow you to take it forward into the design stages.

We will then work with you to finalise the specific details during the design stages, such as window and door placements, internal layout tweaks, material finishes etc. During this, you will have the opportunity to meet and talk over the details and changes that you require.

How Much Does A Feasibility Package Cost?

We charge a small fee for our qualified designers to come out to your home and advise you about your project.

For extensions where you instruct us to proceed to Planning Approval, 50% of your feasibility fees will be reimbursed.

Just before we issues your feasibility report, the balance is due.

If you instruct us to proceed to obtain Building Regulations for you, a further 50% of your feasibility fees will be reimbursed

Extension 3d image

Using Building Information Modelling (BIM) we “build” your design in a virtual world before any building work commences on your home.

Designing in this way means that you;

  • You can see clearly what your design will look like once it is completed
  • Can be sure the design is right, less chance of costly surprises as the build progresses
  • Makes it easier for you to see the cost impact of design changes.

Really Engaged With Us To Understand Our Needs

“It was really useful to have a home visit as a feasibility study to make sure what we were thinking about was practical.

It was also really good to have another meeting after the initial designs were produced to refine our requirements – really engaged with us to understand our needs. 

Also the planning appeal was handled efficiently and we had great confidence in the process”

Mr and Mrs Portsmouth, Finchampstead

Helpful And Knowledgeable

“Michael Aubrey Partnership were recommended to me to help with my drawings and application to the council. 

A feature of the service I found useful was the 3D image of the project and being able to ‘walk around’ the new extension was useful both in seeing the project and making changes. 

Also, coming into the office to talk through with Jamie and Andy on the screen, the changes I wanted to make, helped me see things clearer. 

Michael Aubrey Partnership stood out from their competitors due to their communication and time taken to discuss our project, within our timescale. 

I found everyone very helpful, knowledgeable and able to stick to a timescale, if there were any problems with meeting a deadline then this was explained in advance. 

I found everyone professional and good at what they did.  I would recommend to friends and use again if need be”.
