It's no secret that the most critical phase of every project is the pre-design planning process where you gather, organize, analyze, and COMMUNICATE the requirements that become the basis for the project design. A single mistake in this phase of your project could easily spell disaster.

Don't leave anything to chance! We've just released a brand-new Guidebook that gives you a complete "toolbox" of procedures and techniques that will ensure the pre-design phase of your project is as complete and thorough as it could possibly be. It's called Creating Facility Program Requirements: A Pre-Design Guide for Project Owners.

This book provides you with a complete set of tools and case examples you can use to:

  • Develop pre-design performance criteria for facility projects and attain team buy-in
  • Maximize the VALUE in a facility design, system, or service
  • Choose the optimal solutions to problems involving form, function, cost, quality, energy conservation/sustainability, aesthetics, and much more!

The ultimate success of any new construction or remodeling project, facility relocation, or even major repair depends on how well you do your planning. And with the help of this new book, you'll be confident that your pre-design plans dont overlook a single thing.

From the outset, you'll take control of costs, schedule, scope of work, quality, political issues, and environmental issues, while making sure the actual design meets the needs of all the stakeholders.
