feasibility & concept design

After commissioning or undertaking a survey of the existing site or building, we develop an initial proposal in a ‘sketch’ form to test and examine the possibilities of meeting the ‘clients brief’. We can also develop this in 3-dimensional CAD form to study scale, mass and the appearance of the initial proposals, this helps both the designer and client in understanding the designs but also useful to begin early consultation with local planning authorities, seek budget cost viability from quantity surveyors, contractors or valuations from estate agents. Once the client is satisfied that the brief has been met and that the project is viable in terms of costs etc. the formal statutory planning submissions can begin.
