In the schematic design phase the architectural program is tested against site constraints and performance goals. In this stage, LEED targeted credits are identified and responsibilities for these is assigned to the appropriate project team member. Whether or not a project is targeting LEED certification, the LEED framework provides a robust metric for high performance results; RCS encourages owners to register and certify projects to realize the full benefits of LEED.
Rider Consultant Services can assist in facilitating this process, select, engage and direct energy modellers and commissioning authorities and (as appropriate) construction managers.
We can assist in the production of a Schematic Design Report that captures all pertinent design information for a costing milestone.
