This is where the fun starts.
What we do
We will meet with you to discuss your ideas and vision for the project. Through sketches and three-dimensional studies we will translate your ideas into a number of options as there are often many possible solutions. It is important that this design process is carried out with you so that the best aspects of each option are carried through to the Developed Design.
What you do
You start to explore your project ideas. We suggest that you collect these in a scrapbook of images, a collection of relevant magazines or websites or a list of places that you have visited that you think are relevant.
Tasks for others
A structural engineer may start to investigate the design at this stage to address issues that have arisen out of the surveys and investigations.
