Architectural design: Our typical design process has four phases
Predesign - this is where we identify your project’s objectives, gather data on the your needs and identify what the
site offers as opportunities and constraints.
Sketch or Schematic design - we will meet with you to determine your projects program - what rooms/space you dream
of having - and start to put these dreams on paper. This is often done with hand sketches allowing us to quickly
explore multiple solutions. We approach this as a team effort where you are intimately involved in all of the decisions.
Pricing / Permitting or Design Development - adding detail to the chosen schematic design, providing more detail of
your design and working with the construction team to develop a preliminary budget. At this stage documents can be
reviewed by regulatory and review boards, if required.
Construction Documents - This is where we create the documents used for construction. We will detail in drawn and
written form the materials, products and assemblies decided on earlier to assure your building matches your initial
dream. Typically these drawings include: dimensioned plans, noted elevations, sections, notes of window and doors to
be used and foundation/framing plans. In more complex projects structural engineers, mechanical and civil
drawings may be added to this package.
This is an example of a typical process; we strive to customize the process to your needs as requested.
Construction administration- we are available to assist the construction team with achieving a job complete on time and on budget
