A checklist can assist project teams in meeting their schematic design obligations. In developing a checklist for general applicability, it is necessary to decide upon some frame of reference; this checklist assumes a medium to large commercial project. The checklist could be trimmed for smaller projects, expanded for larger ones, and revised to be applicable to particular building types or specific projects.
