Development of initial statement of requirements into the Design Brief by or on behalf of the client confirming key requirements and constraints. Preparation of Concept Design including outline proposals for structural and building services systems, outline specifications and preliminary cost plan.
Information from clients in form of Design brief for the project. During this phase, we will also visit the project site to do an analysis. This will include views, topography, climate, microclimate, vegetation, soil test, access to the site. (These can be with local authorities).Once we have all information related to the project such as design objective, spaces, room, etc. are determined.
- Basic Plans – Inform of Sketches,
- Plans indicating the layout of the building,
- The setbacks of the building within the site.
- Services layout,
- Method of construction,
- Solar paths and shading,
- Prevailing wind,
- Patterns of circulation,
- Relationships between aspects of the site and so on.
These drawings give the Client an idea of the design layout of his building, the circulation spaces, the positioning of the rooms with reference to each other, and the approximate sizes.
- Rough cost of estimate & budget as per selection of design that meets your requirements.
*Rough cost of estimate includes Hard cost & soft cost. Hard cost is construction related such as material cost, labour and constructor overheads. Soft cost is non-construction such as consultancy fees, banks, etc.
Development of concept design to include structural and building services systems, updated outline specifications and cost plan. After the approval of the client, we take to next phase.
