The first site visit allows for the discussion of the design and the site, in order to further develop the clients brief and their requirements. The initial meeting also allows for the discussion of the design process and project timescales.
Based on the brief developed after the initial meeting, Conceptual design proposals are prepared for discussion following the development of the clients brief. This design pack includes a design plan, sketches, 3D visuals, planting and material mood boards to help visualize the scheme.
The next layer is to work up the design details and prepare a hard and soft landscape package, which includes drawings to be shared with landscape contractors to prepare the cost estimate. The full construction package is prepared during the Tender stage of the project.
During the build, regular site visits are included to monitor and manage the build quality as well as oversee deliveries and plant setting out.
