This service is offered at the earliest stages of project development, where developers require a general overview of their site(s) and an assessment of how feasible the site(s) may be. GL Garrad Hassan usually delivers a multi-criteria study of a proposed site, combining an analysis of the wave and tidal resource, interconnection potential, construction complexity and environmental and/or social sensitivities. If various sites are being considered, GL Garrad Hassan can also provide a weighted ranking of sites, to assist developers in choosing the best one.

GL Garrad Hassan has the unique ability to combine all the required disciplines and come up with a site feasibility study that enables the developer to take a well-informed decision.
