Conceptual Design

The Designer creates “The BIG IDEA”

The Designer creates a design that correctly implements the requirements of the Client.  

It is the first phase of the design process.  It is programmatic, problem-solving and a creative visualization of the ‘BIG IDEA’.  This is the phase where the creative side of the Designer is tested.

During this stage the Designer and the Client/s will either agree or disagree upon the concept/s presented, finishes and materials recommended as well as the costs. 

The scope of work which includes, but is not limited to:

  • conceptual images
  • conceptual drawings – floor plans, elevations, sketches
  • 3D model/s (project specific)
  • preliminary cost estimate
  • concept schedule of materials and finishes

Upon agreement by both parties the project will proceed into the Schematic Design.
