What are Pre-Concept Studies?

Pre-Concept Studies are the first phase of basic services for a project design. At this stage, the design professional describes the project three-dimensionally and a range of alternative design concepts are explored to define the character of the completed project and an optimum realization of the project program.

What are the Pre-Concept activities We do?

The Pre-Concept Phase may include site analysis, programming, construction cost analysis, taking stakeholders requirements including value engineering.
  • Site analysis includes site location and topography, geotechnical reports, and review of existing structures.
  • Programming defines the project needs of the main stakeholders, it includes cataloging the spaces and equipment needed, and functional relationships.
  • The construction cost analysis provides a pre-construction budget for the capital improvement budget (CIB) and a cost plan to assist in explaining the budget and in guiding project management.
  • Value engineering in the Pre-Concept phase scrutinizes the program, site selection, and project budget.
