After the planning phase comes the initial design. Effective concept design makes our goals explicit, setting the scene for the final product. In this phase we assess the different directions your project could take which lets you identify what you like and what you don’t. Investing more into our concept design ensures that we don’t run into any problems as we progress through further stages.
Creating a concept design requires us to have a clear understanding of the types of issues we’d run into as well as the ideal aesthetic style to satisfy both the customer and design team. The concept design includes drawings, reports and other structured details related to the built asset. The final result of this stage is a fully outlined concept design report that records basic design concepts that are worth investigating in the next phase. It also identifies anything required from the client to steer the project forward.
