The design team will prepare floor plans (including options), building exterior elevations, and general layouts of major engineering systems, to confirm the function of the building and how it will integrate into the existing site and context of buildings. The building structural system and grids are established at this time. As schematic design takes form, it is regularly examined in relation to the program, schedule and budget to insure compliance, and modified as required.
