Conceptual Design & Design Development

This phase of the project takes the verbal descriptions and the outline of the project created in the Programming Phase and transforms them into the sketches that will eventually evolve into the final product. During this phase, it's essential to have the Client participate with the team in design charrette's. These charrettes are basically brain storming sessions that really allow the project to take on its own unique character. Floor plans, elevations, sections, reflected ceiling plans, material selections, budget and schedule are developed further. At the end of this phase of the project, the Client will have a perfect understanding of what the entire project will look like, how much it will cost and when it will be completed.
