CDS carried out the initial feasibility study, assessing the demographics of the region and identifying the optimal site for a crematorium. Once a site had been selected,CDS carried out a detailed need assessment report which identified, through detailed drive time analysis and statistical assessment, the likely cremation numbers for the identified parcel of land. A financial model was then created to assess the feasibility of the development including profit projections and running costs.
The chosen site had proven to meet a strict need for a crematorium, therefore, CDS were instructed to undertake all aspects of a planning application for the proposed development, which included air quality assessments, ecological appraisals, archaeological investigations, highways assessments and many other detailed reports required for a large scale construction project.
The CDS design team developed the full design scope, landscape and layout drawings for the Crematorium - landscaping, drainage, road layout and the proposed cemetery area. Working closely with our design partners, concept drawings for the new crematorium were designed by the appointed architect for the project following design brief meetings with the client to ensure their requirements were fully understood and met within the detailed design.
