Concept design

Concept design comprises two phases: pre-design – the research and information-gathering phase – and the design phase. During the design phase, you will arrange, attend and record meetings with the client, authorities, consultants and other relevant parties; undertake a preliminary assessment of authority regulations and requirements; prepare sketches, diagrams and other information to adequately explain the concept; prepare design briefs for other consultants; undertake preliminary selection of materials and finishes; and coordinate preliminary cost forecasts appropriate to the size of the project for the client’s consideration.
