Conceptual Design

Conceptual design is the first stage of our Design & Engineering services, which includes:

  • examination of an identified client need
  • definition of requirements for potential solutions 
  • evaluation of alternative solutions
  • development of system specification (e.g. technical requirements and environmental targets)
  • forecasting of investment costs 

This results in a document that governs all future development.

For the client, benefits from concept design includes:

  • lower Life Cycle Cost (LCC) 
  • lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) 
  • possibility for a change of direction (if required), without affecting project delivery schedules

The overall aim is to maximise function and minimise cost for the client.
