Concept Design

Concept Design is the crucial first step in the design process.  It establishes a vision for the project to be shared by the entire design team and determines the way forward as the design progresses.  Fish Mackay Architects provides Conceptual Design services for a variety of project types and purposes, including:

  • Determination of development capacity of site
  • Site planning-determination of relationship of building to site features and surrounding context.
  • Preliminary cost estimatation
  • Community outreach
  • Communication to financial partners and lenders
  • Initiation of entitlement process

Great decisions made during the Conceptual Design phase will benefit the project throughout its duration and are necessary to ensure the result of a creatively-designed, high-quality environment.
