Architectural Design Services
Our architectural design services cover all phases of the design process, including:
Conceptual or Schematic Design Planning Services
Design Phase Services
Bidding & Negotiation Phase Services
During the Schematic Design phase, we review project objectives with the Client to collect complete information regarding desired size, function, and aesthetic of new and/or renovated spaces. We create initial or Concept Drawings and review options with the Client. After the Client’s approval of the Concept, we then prepare Schematic Design documents to define the general scope and conceptual design of the project including scale and relationships between building components.
During this phase we prepare Design Development Documents including an outline of Specifications for the Client’s review.
Here we prepare Construction Documents in accordance with the building codes and zoning ordinances and decide which drawings are necessary for construction and permitting. In this phase we develop drawings and specifications for Contractor bidding, negotiation and construction.
We will furnish to the local jurisdiction (the entity reviewing the project and issuing the associated permit(s)) all architectural information, data, and drawings required for procuring all necessary or desirable permits.
Bidding and Negotiation
We will work with the Client in obtaining bids or negotiated proposals and assist in awarding and preparing contracts for construction.
We will act as the Client’s advocate during construction by answering contractor questions, interpreting the construction documents, and assisting with final product, material and color selections. The Construction Administration phase occurs during construction.
