- Managing the process of translating business strategy into development briefs for major projects
- Formulating and assemble detailed project requirements from high-level business objectives through workshops and interviews
- Developing clear and comprehensive design strategy documents to ensure consistency and quality
If a development programme or project is to deliver the right business outcome the right brief is essential. This brief must demonstrate that it is focused on high-level business objectives.
Forster Associates have extensive experience in developing clear, concise and comprehensive briefing documents for major development programmes. These briefs ensure that a project will deliver on the business vision and strategic direction.
A full brief will include business outcomes driving the development, operational requirements for each section of the development, and detailed technical briefs for systems.
Where developments have been large-scale and complex we have promoted the development of design and engineering guidelines to ensure appropriate quality and consistency of approach.
These guidelines are important tools within large design teams to help the individual designers to work within an overall context. They also prove invaluable tools in negotiating with local statutory planning authorities for staged approval of large ‘campus’ developments.
