The starting point of a building comes long before design. We work with our clients to explore their options, assess the feasibility of sites and assist in development of a business case. We address future scenarios and verify their sustainability to ensure that work proceeds on a strong foundation.
Our staff participate in existing programs to understand how an organisation works and how the building will function. We put together a project team comprising building management, end users and staff. Workshops with this group explore objectives and the desired life of the building. These are presented in diagrammatic form as Design Ideas. We then assess the site and decide on a strategy to deliver the most sustainable solution. This stage confirms the adequacy of the budget.
