    Clients Brief

    Comparison in the dashboard

    At the bottom we have the clients brief section. Here we can input the requirements from the client so we can see how far or close we are to achieving their goals.

    This can be in the form of a fixed number or percentage. We can also identify how the parking rates will be effected based on number of units compared with the authorities required numbers.

    Areas can also be checked against gross area ratios if your building authority provides this information.
