Pre-design proposals are a set of primary design documentation, which is usually carried out at the initiative of the Customer and defines the main architectural, planning and spatial solutions of the object, its main parameters and technical and economic indicators. These materials allow already at this early stage to evaluate the project and clarify the requirements for its further development and are especially important for large facilities.
In addition, in a number of regions, for example, in Moscow and St. Petersburg, such documentation is mandatory in the regulations for obtaining approvals for the construction or reconstruction of the facility as a whole. At the same time, without changing the essence, it can be called differently depending on the region: architectural and urban planning (AGO), architectural and urban planning (AGR), etc.
The “The Institute of Contemporary Construction Technologies “ recommends Customers to order the development of pre-project proposals, even if such development is not required by regulation. This will allow overcoming many difficulties associated with the further design and construction of the facility, and, ultimately, will save the Customer’s money.
At this stage of the project development, the design, layout of the object, its technical and technological equipment, and architectural solution are determined. The result should be a clear idea of the layout, volumetric structure and appearance of the building. In the design process, a detailed refinement of the sketches is carried out and brought to the level of completeness, which allows us to take them as a basis in the creation of design documentation in the future.
The materials of the pre-project proposal are also the basis for negotiations with potential tenants or buyers of the building space. That is why this stage should be given special attention, since errors in its implementation can lead to serious losses during further design. The pre-proposal includes, as a rule:
