Start Up Services (SUS) - "look before you leap"


If you want to look before you leap, you'll find zedd's Start Up Services (SUS) feasibility study the perfect place to start. You may already own a property or are looking to purchase one for a particular project. You may have a property to sell and wish to assess the value based on it's development potential.

Our SUS initial evaluation covers the zoning and planning constraints for development whether a vacant site or one with an existing building and explores what can be built, the scale of the building and optimum configuration of the development taking into account the coverage, density, parking requirements, hazards and special conditions that may apply.



Our SUS Steps are as follows:


Step 1   We commence with a client meeting to ascertain goals followed by a site visit to understand the physical aspects and context of the site. Depending on the complexity of the site, a boundary plan or topo survey is typically required and will be one of the first things we ask for in preparation for us to get started.


Step 2   We assess the zoning, bylaws and official plan for the site location to determine the building constraints and development potential as well as the applicable building codes and any 'design guidelines' affecting the site location. We also discuss the potential for rezoning and its affect on the value and development viability.


Step 3  We then prepare preliminary site and base floor plans together with a 3D massing model to explore the scope and scale with various building configurations and their resulting statistics towards the optimum solution.


If the feasibility study is deemed viable, we then advance the project design and prepare drawings towards fulfilling the required marketing or planning submissions, such as:


   • Pre Site Plan Consultation

   • Re-zoning

   • Formal Request submission for Site Plan Consultation

   • Site Plan Approval Submissions

   • Urban Design Review

   • Public Site Plan Meeting


We also work together with your realtor or other professionals such as appraisers, planners, financial consultants and legal advisors towards assisting in the production of a pro forma for lending or investor's review.
