Programming & Schematic Design Services

These services act as the springboard for most of our projects. Programming is the process by which we identify and systematically organize the functional, aesthetic and budget criteria which guide the decision-making in our designs. At this time consideration is given to architectural, interior, structural, mechanical and electrical disciplines.

The programming process seeks to illuminate those aspects of a project which make it unique. All programming techniques are basically similar, regardless of the project type, size or location. During this time the programming is intended to identify the problems, not necessarily the solution.

The schematic design is the analysis of the program criteria and the start of the solution process. It is during this time that concept sketches and diagrams are utilized to organize each primary function area in a manner that will best serve the clients needs.

These sketches are reviewed with the client and it is during this time that a design evolves.
