6. Inspections

Site inspection and analysis is called for to prove or disprove something in an objective way, and in a way that can be proven true through peer review. A site analysis looks at what exists on a site and the immediate and wider surrounding area. It is an audit of the existing situation. An inspection may look at more specific aspects relating to condition, integrity, maintenance and other aspects that make up the existing condition of a site and buildings on it. These inspections can include factors such as visual effects, amenity, climate, soil, flora, fauna, surface and subsurface water and drainage. They are often the first step in a report or assessment. Inspections from a number of consultants are only effective if they support each other and provide a fine fabric of objective views that stand up to scrutiny.
