- First, the owner selects a “Design Intent Coordinator” to orchestrate input to the Tool by all stakeholders.
The Owner or Coordinator completes the "Owner’s Goals & Project Info" and "Team Contact Info" Tabs, and, if desired, selects an
appropriate Template File.* These steps provide the design team with a conceptual framework and guideposts.
- The design team then develops the project’s Design Intent Document Tab by adding/deleting/modifying the
Design Areas, Objectives, Strategies, and Metrics (including “+/- Details” and “Assessment Records” sub-pages).
- The Design Intent document is finalized, with input from all stakeholders.
Reports generated in MS-Word and MS-Excel can be fed into the design program, specs, and other documents for easy modification.
