WHAT DOES DIVCON OFFER?
Site ComparisonDIVCON can develop a site plan to include parking and traffic circulation with a building location to maximize them. This is the time to look at soil composition to see if it’s suitable for the proposed building’s foundation. DIVCON can also review the existing infrastructure to determine cost implications on the proposed site’s feasibility
Code Zoning AnalysisIdentifying the applicable building codes and zoning regulations is essential to anticipate issues a proposed building will run into. An analysis of local code and zoning requirements will limit permit delays and corrections down the road.
Test Fit PlanningDuring a test fit, DIVCON will examine how a proposed, or a number of proposed, buildings and the interior layout will work for it’s intended use(s) and how the building would fit on a potential building site. This is essential to maximizing the site and a building’s interior space.
Preliminary Cost EstimationOnce a proposed building and site are selected, DIVCON can establish a budgetary estimate. This is will be done using historical data and collaboration with trusted trade partners that DIVCON has a history of working with.
Is there access to utilities (e.g., electricity, sewer, water, gas and phone) for the building type that is being considered? DIVCON will estimate your building’s utility needs and the implications of getting them onto the site if they are not there already.
Lender, Real-Estate & Appraisal Assistance
With a preliminary budget, an owner/developer can look into financing with lenders, banks, or investors. Many times, there are changes that need to be made to a preliminary design for financing purposes. DIVCON estimates/budgets the impact of these changes and discusses the cost implications.
