The following is a general summary of our Residential Design Process. Every project is unique, and thus every project will have its own variation of the following:
Phase 1 | Start-up / Preliminary Design :
We'll measure and photograph your existing home and site (as necessary). We'll then produce as-built drawings of your existing home.
Concept Design : We'll then create Concept Drawings for your new design, including multiple option packages (as necessary) for your review and discussion.
Schematic Design : We'll then refine the Concept Drawings (based on your feedback), advancing design parameters such as site positioning, size, layout and general "style" of your new design.
Phase 2 | Design Development :
We'll then refine the Schematic Design drawings (based on your feedback), advancing all design parameters towards an approximate 75% completion.
We'll then assist you to Obtain Preliminary Construction Cost estimates. We are connected with a qualified list of General Contractors and can make recommendations as necessary.
Phase 3 | Construction Documentation :
- We'll then translate the Design Development information into technical drawings for Permit and Construction. Building Code compliance (and other project-related local ordinances) are carefully reviewed and incorporated into the final design.
- This includes drawings, specifications & schedules for your selected General Contractor(s) to finalize costs, apply for Permit(s), and build.
