The Basics of a Good Property Plan

Engineers working on a planVegetation, topography, weather, culture, local policies and existing infrastructure influence the division, allocation, and design of any building. For many builders and construction companies, these are all factors that influence construction. Any form of construction requires a thorough site analysis, followed by a presentation that deals with the conditions of the site. For you to maximise space, and strategically design your building, it is imperative that you useĀ professional planning consultants. Here are some of the things you should include in a well-designed plan.

Property lines

Property lines set the stage for land allocation and planning. This ensures that you do not set up your building on an adjacent property. Failure to set property lines may see you spend additional time redesigning, conducting more surveys and more drawings, and in worst cases dealing with lawsuits from unforgiving neighbours.


If your lot is lying in a dense downtown setting or a commercial environment, then planning for a parking lot must be put into consideration. Parking makes your building a premium location, but only if done correctly. As such, ensure that your plan has parking diagrams, with accurate dimensions, appropriate signs, and mobility and accessibility features.

Fire Hydrants

Access to a building is not only important to the occupants but also critical when it comes to emergencies. Your local city codes provide the regulations of the distance between buildings and fire hydrants. Concessions for fire hydrants and other emergency water sources are essential when planning a building site. Site planning requires critical thinking and precise planning. Make sure you don’t leave any room for mishaps and consult a professional planning consultant who could give you the best advice when it comes to completing your building.
