Schematic Design Phase

Schematic design includes assisting the client in the development of the owner's program requirements statement. An accurate and thorough program statement is a necessity to assure an accurate schematic design. This is followed by the schematic design of the floor plans which are the layouts showing site design, spatial relationships, sizes of spaces, and the beginning of material selections.
