Abstract: The rapid and dynamic information and knowledge transfer between designers during the conceptual phase of building projects can result in disorganised behaviour within the team. Team members can become frustrated by the lack of a common understanding of the manner in which the design activity is being performed and the direction in which the process is progressing. Evidence suggests that design teams are better equipped to undertake design activity when in possession of a general programme of events or activities through which they are likely to pass than when no such structuring concept is held. This paper describes the development of a structured framework, which has been generated to aid and support the interdisciplinary team in undertaking conceptual design.
