Equal develops innovative, appropriate and cost-effective design solutions on both cultural and corporate sector projects. We encourage compatible working relationships with like-minded people applying an integrated team approach to maintain close communication with our clients through a single point of contact.
With the appropriate project team in place we commence the iterative design development process through the following phases.
RIBA Stage 1 Preparation & Brief
We audit the project status and work together to understand and agree project aims and aspirations. This is carried out alongside the parameters of the existing site and building services.
RIBA Stage 2 Concept Design
We propose an initial outline of the project content alongside the spatial design, access requirements and communication media.
RIBA Stage 3 Developed Design
We enhance the team with additional specialists to develop proposals in more detail against an allocated budget.
RIBA Stage 4 Technical Design
We define the final design elements enabling information to go to tender or negotiated contract.
RIBA Stage 5 Construction
We co-ordinate the fit out with the contractor and client representatives. This process closely follows RIBA work stages for any architect-led projects.
