Feasibility Studies

At the initial feasibility stage of a development MGM Partnership advise on broad cost implications such as site suitability, building position on site and economic design solutions.

An agreed budget can then be established based on the preliminary design information available and this budget becomes the benchmark for the project as the design develops.
