The scope involved setting out to scale all aspects of the site masterplan and estab­lish­ing the required references, coordinates, and dimensions. Site development included rough grading, finished grading, filling and transitions to adjacent grade levels. This stage resulted in a set of drawings that defined the scope of work for the preparation of the preliminary design drawings and, subse­quently, the detailed design.
