This is where the ideas are laid out in the form of Sketches/Visuals/3D Models. The concept in mind is illustrated with the help of basic site plans, simple elevations, rough sections and floor plans. The sketches also include dimensions to get an approximate cost estimation of the project. In this phase, the design should meet the client’s vision as well as space requirements of the workplace. After frequent meetings with client and revisions, a design will then be finalized.
The schematic design that is finalized in the previous stage is further developed in this stage. The floor plans, sections and elevations are developed with accurate dimensions. More importantly, additional details including location of windows and doors, colors, material, finishes selection, furniture, etc are also included in the design. The final design (usually in 3D views) is then presented to the client and his approval is taken.
