What Your Infrastructure Analysis Should Include If You Are Developing in a Remote Site

If you've bought a plot of land with hopes of developing a remote resort or retreat, there is a lot to do, and before you break ground on your buildings, you need to start with a site analysis. A site analysis can take into account numerous pre-building factors from legal issues to geological or climatic concerns.

However, if you are building in a remote place, you should also have your site analysis focus on infrastructure. Here are some of the issues you may want to be covered in the analysis:

1. Accessibility to Utilities

Remote locations are often off the grid, and that may be great in terms of creating the feeling of a peaceful, unplugged experience. However, in most cases, you want basic utilities for your development.

An infrastructure site analysis can look at the availability of nearby utilities including electricity, water and sewage. The analysis should include information on the work and cost concerned with connecting to the grid.

If that is not possible, the site analysis should cover the feasibility of alternatives. For instance, the analysis may look into the costs of installing and servicing generators, water tanks and septic tanks.

2. Transportation

Your infrastructure site analysis should also look at transportation concerns. It should summarise available options for tourists who want to reach your location—for instance, are there airports, trains or buses servicing nearby areas?

As most remote areas are ultimately only accessible by road, the report should also cover the condition of local roads. That can include things such as accessibility in different weather conditions, whether or not 4WD is necessary and similar factors. At the same time, a site analysis can also create estimates on what impact your property's customers will have on local traffic flow and congestion.

3. Adjacent Land Uses

Finally, a site analysis focused on infrastructure should also cover what the adjacent land is used for.  That can have an impact on the overall appeal and profitability of the resort or retreat centre you are developing.

For instance, if the nearby land is used for hunting, you may want to take that into consideration as you develop your site. Similarly, if the land is earmarked for drilling, logging or other industrial activity, you may also want to know that. If the purposes of your retreat are to give people access to natural beauty, the business may be hurt if that type of activity is happening just next door.

Hello, my name is Lisa. Welcome to my blog. The topics I will cover in my blog are to do with construction. I should be clear from the outset, I do not work in construction myself, but I recently hired a team of construction workers to carry out some work renovating and extending my business premises. I was dreading the day work started because I didn't understand anything about what was going on. Thankfully, the guys were great and they explained everything they were doing to me. My business is much bigger and better than it was before. Enjoy my blog!
