The consultant's scope

The architect, in initiating the concept, will require early decisions to be made regarding specialist services in areas that are fundamental to the early design stages. Such decisions will have considerable bearing on the final design. The earlier that specialist advice is sought and decisions confirmed with the client, the more reliable and comprehensive the initial presentation will be and the more sound the basis for further development of the design concept.
