Schematic
Design

Kickoff the design phase with a weekly Studio meeting.

In this phase, our Studio team will rely on the client’s AOR to provide a variety of critical inputs like window legends, louvers, and roof loading. We’ll also provide an initial logistics plan, and end the phase with a schematic design sign-off.
