Explain phases to non-Architects
Rather frequently as a team, we must begin working together with this level of information. A level of information that is wrought with unknowns, assumption, and variables that will affect the outcome of the project.
The red and blue coloring represents the phasing plan associated with the construction of the master plan.
Our initial challenge was to define the multiple bldg types represented in the project. Dormitories, classroom bldgs, office/administrative bldgs. Etc. We used these project data sheets to capture high level assumptions with respect to each bldg type and the characteristics that we would find common across similar bldg types. Information such as interior partition ratios, finish types, foundation types, structural types, et.c
