Assessing Your Ideas
This is an investigative process which is used to generate early ideas for a project to determine its eventual feasibility. Various factors contributed to this study include building size, anticipated building cost, and some basic stages of programming and conceptual design.
If you are not quite sure where to start before your project is designed, this is a step in determining needs of the project – rooms, functions, purposes, considerations, limitations – all before the first drawing is started. This step is an easy transition into Conceptual design.
