“The art of arranging structures on the land and shaping the spaces between; an art linked to architecture, engineering, landscape architecture and city planning” by Kevin Lynch. Kevin Lynch outlines eight stages of site planning. The first one is defining the problem. This includes analysis of brief and requirements are given, and then to define a problem. The second stage is programming and the analysis of the site and user. This gives the idea of how could the site be addressed. Schematic design and cost estimate gives a preliminary idea of cost and design. Developed design and detailed costing confirm everything required for the design. Preparing contract documents with designs and cost estimates is stage five. Stage six is bidding and contracting. Stage seven is the construction of the building according to the site, followed by stage eight, followed by occupation and management of the building or space.
