Understanding and Analysis

Prior to beginning any project, the total consultant team must conduct initial research of the site and context, review previous studies, prepare and confirm overall goals of the project with the client – here the City of Richmond.  During this phase, the Community Consultation process is also defined and an overall outline of the first phase of the overall project (Concept Design) is approved.
