It may have transpired that the initial hopes written into the agenda at the end of the inception stage may have proved impractical, or that different criteria have emerged during the research process. T h e feasibility study may have shown that the whole exercise is not viable, or the study itself may have been reworked on new or revised criteria. Of course, the ultimate viability of the project will not be known until tenders (bids) have been received from contractors on an agreed, detailed design, well beyond the scope of this Guide: similarly, the commissioning client may wish to keep open the question of feasibility until a more thorough appraisal of needs and possible solutions has been made at the end of the current phase.

Be prepared to conclude that at least some of the perceived problems are not necessarily 'architectural', and that they may be more readily resolved through administrative or programme changes. Realize that diagrams and concept sketches may be part of its content, but that it is not the purpose of the feasibility study to offer fully worked-up designs. Appreciate that it cannot resolve all conflicts - indeed it may pose certain painful questions. 1 Surveys Surveys are an essential means of acquiring a factual basis about the life of the church community under investigation, the area (and buildings if some already exist) in which it is located and the work of other local churches.

T h a t framework should set out: 1. 2. 3. 4. Responsibilities of those involved with the study. Working methods to be employed. Means of collating and analysing information gathered. Ways of presenting options for concept selection. The first part of the study will be occupied with collecting survey data (local audit) and assessing needs, resources, constraints and objectives (initial briefing). T h e agenda for the study may well have been written without the help of any architectural advice, but as the work starts to focus upon buildings, some help with such matters is essential.
