Brief Writing – Design & Development Briefs
The quality of a design or development brief is critical to gaining the most from your built environment project. Design consultants can misinterpret poorly written briefs. Failing to address the real issues of the project or diluting its original aspirations. A well written brief is essential to a successful project. Maximising the value good design can add to the process.
Working closely with you & your stakeholders. We’ll develop your initial thoughts into a clearly defined vision & brief. Collating this into a well-designed & articulated briefing document. This can help raise awareness, provoke discussion or procure funding for your project.
