Initial planning develops the long-range goals and objectives that build a framework for project development. Products include uncovering the project mission, developing a program and formulating design guidelines within a generalized development plan.
Feasibility studies identify the suitability of sites and buildings for a particular development program. Alternate conceptual designs are explored with budget planning, market studies, cost analysis and other research, helping to establish implemantation strategies and phasing.
Design begins with the development and approval of a concept that will guide and inform all subsequent design activities for a particular project. Ideal Land architect's talanted staff focuses significant effort during this phase to ensure a coherent and unified approach to problem solving.
Design development refines the approved concept and sets the stage for critical aspests of project implementation, including construction technologies, materials selection and landscape element.
