We start with an initial consultation meeting where we can discuss your design needs and requirements. This will enable us to gauge the scope of work you need from us and will result in a proposal for our services as well as a breakdown of our fees.
Once we have come to an agreement, we will document any existing conditions through field studies and gather any relevant architectural data to define the parameters of the project and initiate a brainstorm of ideas.
During this phase of the architectural design process, we will take the information we’ve gathered to create two to three design options for your consideration. We will generally present these options in the form of sketches, so you can visualize the different routes your project could take.
We will also attach a rough cost estimate to each option to aide you in selecting a design that meets both your aesthetic preferences and budget requirements. You will also have the opportunity to request any modifications you’d like us to make to your preferred design.
Once you have selected a design option that best suits your needs, we will begin the process of refining the design.
At this point, we will take the schematic design you selected, as well as any requested modifications, and revise the design as necessary.
This phase may require additional give and take as we work with you to finalize the details of the design before moving into the next phase.
By now, we will have settled on a final design and will begin preparing drawings, notes, and technical specifications necessary for bidding, construction, and permit application. This includes structural, architectural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and electronic plans. This is the phase that many people think of when they picture the work of an architect – the creation of blueprints.
Contractors will use these detailed drawings and specifications to prepare for the next phase in the architectural design process.
Having an architect on your side during the bidding phase of construction is of great advantage to you. At minimum, we can aid you in developing a list of qualified contractors for your bid list and submitting bid packages to bidders. But we can also review submitted bids, provide analysis, and help you compare the cost figures that you receive from your bidders.
This phase will ensure the contractors you are considering for your construction project are reading the blueprints correctly and are providing an accurate bid for your project.
Finally, once you have selected a contractor and construction is under way, we will administer the construction process to assure conformance with design intent, visit the site during construction, and address any field conditions as they arise.
Our work is done when there is a smooth and satisfactory completion of your project.
