Requirement

Visual information to provide general principles of the design. Showing arrangement of system with their relationship to internal and external context, and key project criteria to suit a clients brief. General descriptions would be expected to communicate principles of materiality, scope, colour and context. Expect strategic coordination with other professions to show general principles of the design.

Purpose of information

To provide a visual representation of proposals at a Concept stage and support general spatial coordination.
