Comprehensive site design

Site design needs to start with a brief. In the outdoors, especially in wilder places, the site survey information collected at the survey/inventory phase may lack precise detail. Site protection measures, especially when working in sensitive areas, must be adhered to. The site and its surroundings, the highways and nearby communities had reached saturation point. As the site is a scheduled ancient monument it is not possible to excavate, and so the new furniture has to sit on the ground surface without anchorage. The design team may consist of recreation planning specialists, landscape architects, engineers, architects and building surveyors, artists, ecologists and wildlife biologists, as well as accountants and economists. The design team should consider a wide range of ideas in seeking both well-tried and original ways of solving problems and maximizing opportunities. Designs were developed that are too heavy to be easily lifted or stolen.
