Forth Wines- Site Engineering Appraisal

News Date: 21st May, 2013

Forth Wines are seeking planning permission to change the use of their existing warehouse and
office premises into a site for residential use to facilitate their relocation to more modern premises nearby.

To assist in understanding any potential engineering issues associated with the redevelopment, Forth Wines appointed Pharos Consulting to undertake an engineering appraisal for the site to assess whether any major engineering constraints or issues which may affect the proposed redevelopment or planning application existed and to advise on the order of priority of any investigations to achieve certainty on engineering issues in a best value manner.

Following completion of the services, Forth Wines were left with in principle agreements with utility providers in respect to gas, water, electricity and sewerage requirements. Further investigation requirements were identified and ranked in terms of risk, with quotations for undertaking investigations for two issues of potentially higher risk to achieving planning approval provided.  Overall our engineering appraisal service provides confidence at an early stage on viability. 

On being provided a copy of the report, the planning consultant for the scheme commented on how the broad coverage of the report significantly simplified the preparation of the planning application.

A project information sheet on the scheme can be found here.
