Facility programming is the process of gathering and analyzing information about a problem before trying to solve it with design. Facility programming provides the WDI Group team with information about building user needs and patterns of use within the space. This information is utilized in the process of architectural design decision-making.
Initial meetings will be collaborative, working together to create a detailed design brief that will determine the needs, wants, and overall style of the new facility. It’s during this time that any design inspiration images, or examples, are reviewed and incorporated into the new building space design, as well as taken into consideration for future space planning. This is also a suitable time to discuss timing and budgets.
