Schematic Design establishes the general scope, conceptual design, scale and relationships among the components of the project. The primary objective is to arrive at a clearly defined, feasible concept while exploring the most promising alternative design solutions. The Architect will prepare a series of rough plans, known as schematics, which show the general arrangement of rooms and of the building on the site. Models and/or illustrations are prepared to help visualize the project as necessary. The project proceeds to the next phase when the Owner approves the Schematic Design.
