Schematic Design.

Once the decision has been made regarding what to build, rough sketches or schematic designs present this decision visually so ideas can be further explored and refined. A design direction begins to emerge through initial floor plans and elevations that identify approximate building size, orientation, wall locations, window and door placement, roof slopes, and major equipment and furnishing layout.

During the schematic design phase, we think and evaluate ideas in three dimensions using a variety of tools including architectural drawings, cardboard models, sophisticated computer modeling, and multimedia presentations. This visual planning makes it easy to evaluate needs and make any changes necessary before construction begins (when changes are much more costly).
