Feasibility Studies & Constraint Analyses

image10061Feasibility studies and constraint analyses offer workable and realistic information on a project’s viability in terms of potential cultural resources. These studies should be viewed as detailed initial property investigations to uncover potential problems or project constraints. The duration of the study depends on the size of the undertaking, the intensity of the effort required, and the extent of the information required. These studies rely heavily on research in available records, historic, and environmental material. They may include a physical inspection of the project to verify the research information; this may include limited subsurface testing. The resulting project report summarizes the information SouthArc obtained about the property and provides a recommendation as to whether additional study is needed. The data from a feasibility study is used to develop the scope of work for any further research recommended.
