Design Brief

When first instructed, a "design brief" is taken indicating, in general terms, what is required. The "design brief" is basically a statement of intentions. It is then our job at EAP, to transfer this general statement into shapes and sizes.
On some occasions assistance will be required in the preparation of the brief, EAP will be pleased to assist having first made a thorough study of what you want to achieve.

Sketch Scheme

The first key event in EAP's design process is to obtain approval of a sketch scheme which consists of:
- A set of easily understandable sketch drawings.
- An explanation of the drawings and their relationship to the "design brief".
- A description of materials.
