This phase consists of generating a design concept and schematic design for the intended program. This is demonstrated by creating scaled free hand drawings of the site design, in floor plan at each level, exterior elevations, and various perspective sketches as needed to communicate the design intent.
Once the schematic design is finished a schematic design pricing set is developed to present to several builders so that schematic budget pricing can be produced. The schematic design pricing set of drawings consist of: site plan, floor plans, exterior elevations, roof plan, lighting plans, perspective sketches, design details, architectural specifications, finish allowances, and design details.
