The Disadvantages of Not Having a Schematic Design

Many real estate developers start their projects on the back of an envelope without having a clear vision of exactly what they are developing. This can result in the following:

  • Overpaying for a property because you thought you could build more. 

  • Setting bad expectations for your partners. 

  • Wasting too much time and money, having your architect start from scratch.

  • Going into a city planning meeting with no clear vision or idea of what you want to build.

  • Overpromising things to your local authorities that you can't deliver.

  • Inserting inaccurate numbers into your financial pro forma and realizing later that the deal is bad.

Develop with a Clear & Precise Vision.

Starting with a clear schematic design ensures your project is on the right track.  Visualize your project before it's even built and allow yourself to see the actual size of it, address potential issues in advance, and make necessary changes to your financial model and site plans.  This saves you time and money by avoiding costly mistakes later in development when it's too late.  In addition, by accurately seeing your project in advance, you can ensure that it's built to the best possible standards through your budget, meets the needs of your target market, and is financially feasible.  This will also help you secure the necessary green light from regulatory bodies to move ahead.  Moreover, having a detailed plan can demonstrate your understanding of the site's constraints and opportunities, making it easier to negotiate with the local authorities and navigate the approval process.  Don't leave your project's success to chance - take the time to plan it out with a clear vision and set yourself up for success.

Leverage Our Experience & Avoid the Mistakes

At BLDGUP, we understand the pitfalls of starting a project on a whim, only to realize later that it wasn't the best move. We've been lucky to avoid going broke from such mistakes, but we've heard horror stories from others who weren't as fortunate. You might think you can build one thing but end up with far less space than you hoped for. Perhaps you've sketched out a dream project on a napkin during lunch, only to crunch numbers on your smartphone and realize it's not feasible. When it comes to scaling up to large projects, those tactics won't cut it any longer. We've made those same mistakes and learned the hard way that hiring professionals to analyze the site and market and create a comprehensive schematic design with 3-D renderings, plans, and detailed unit matrices is crucial. Before we did that, we didn't realize how far off our initial numbers were. It took us years of experience and money lost to start approaching projects the right way. We're excited to share what we've learned with you through our experienced team. You don't have to make the same mistakes we did or burn through millions of dollars to gain our knowledge. Instead, use our team and streamline your development process. With our Optics Schematic Design, you'll not only save time that you can allocate to better use, like finding deals and raising capital, but you'll also avoid countless costly mistakes that can come from going at it the wrong way. So, toss out the napkin and take the professional approach. The Optics Schematic Design will give you a clear picture of your vision and help you communicate it effectively to those who need to support it.

​Why Waste Time & Money Visualize Your Project, so Your Numbers Make Sense

​If you're developing a property, not taking the proper steps costs you a lot. Before you even break ground on a project, you must do your due diligence and assess the project's viability. First, you're conducting a site analysis to understand the characteristics of your subject lot. Then, once you have a general understanding of the property, you should be doing a market study to learn what sells best in the market. With those pieces in mind, you're envisioning a project, so you need to create a schematic design to visualize it before you run a financial pro forma to determine if the project is worth pursuing. The schematic design is a preliminary visual representation of your proposed project typically created by an architect or designer. It shows the basic layout, shape, and size of the buildings or structures, as well as the surrounding landscape, parking areas, and other key elements of the development. The schematic design is an essential step in real estate development because it helps you, the developer, and other stakeholders, such as investors, partners, and local authorities, visualize the project and make key decisions about its design, function, and feasibility before investing more time and money into final site plans. That's where BLDGUP's Optics Schematic Design comes in. Our design team analyzes the site and market and creates a comprehensive schematic design that includes floor plans, unit counts, and common areas, allowing you to gauge the true net and gross square footage. The numbers will also be presented in easily digestible metrics that can be integrated into your development financial pro forma. The design can be refined over time as the project progresses and more detailed information becomes available. In addition, our team provides you with a 3-D massing rendering to help you communicate your vision to partners, investors, and municipal officials. Armed with this information, you'll be able to confidently negotiate, knowing and conveying that your investment is solid and your project is feasible. Even if you realize the project is not feasible, the Optics Schematic Design can help you adjust the design and perhaps even the use until it makes sense. Or, you may even decide it doesn't, pass on it, and go to the next one. By doing so, you can avoid costly mistakes and ensure that your project is a success. At BLDGUP, we understand the costly risks associated with real estate development, and that's why we're committed to providing our clients with the tools they need to succeed. So don't leave your projects to chance - get the Optics Schematic Design and start your project on the right foot.
