Schematic Design

is also known as Preliminary Design. This phase implies the transition from the initial concept to the beginnings of building design.

In this phase design concepts will be sufficiently developed in detail so the client is able to evaluate the feasibility of a project, the development potential of a site or even select the best conceptual approach.

This stage of a project is carried out to minimize the likelihood of error, manage costs, assess risks, and evaluate the potential success of the intended project.

The Concept Design Phase is likely to include the following tasks:

  • Environmental impact assessment: wind speed, acoustics. etc.
  • Preliminary Architectural, MEP & Structural analysis / design
  • Evaluation of alternatives
  • Preliminary sizing of primary/key elements
  • Preliminary review of utility supply capacity: electricity, gas; telecommunications; water; waste water
  • Indicative specification
  • Value Engineering Review
  • Estimates on a ‘square meter rate’ basis
