EXPLORING THE OPTIONS AND UNCOVERING THE POTENTIAL
Concept Design Services or a Feasibility Study may be right for you if:
At the completion of the concept design services phase, you will clearly understand how your project can be realized, in multiple ways, arming you with the information you need to make an informed decision on how best to proceed. The services summarized below outline the typical process, and I am happy to customize these services to best fit your project needs.
1. PROGRAM + SITE ANALYSIS
This first phase includes a thorough program and site analysis, which involves conducting a site visit, documenting existing conditions, and reviewing and summarizing zoning and regulatory considerations.
2. VISION + GOALS
Following the initial analysis, the focus shifts towards establishing the vision and goals for the project. This phase involves visioning exercises and the development of a project program, which outlines the required spaces and their respective functional requirements.
3. CONCEPTS + LAYOUTS
Typically during this phase, two to three concept design options are generated, accompanied by 3D models and massing studies for visual representation. The chosen option undergoes a refinement process, ultimately resulting in the creation of the Concept Design and Feasiblity Report.
FROM DESIGN THROUGH CONSTRUCTION
Comprehensive architectural design services from start to finish; I am with you each step of the way. The typical architectural process is divided into 6 phases as described below. These architectural phases provide a structured approach to design and construction, helping to ensure that the final built project aligns with your vision and meets your functional and quality requirements. I am happy to customize these services to best fit your project needs.
FULL ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN SERVICES:
1. PREDESIGN PHASE
This initial phase is essential for establishing a clear project vision, understanding the existing conditions and context, and defining the project parameters before moving into the detailed design stages. It lays the groundwork for a successful architectural design project by providing a solid understanding of the project’s scope, constraints, and opportunities.
2. CONCEPTUAL DESIGN PHASE
The main objectives of this phase are to create a clear and cohesive design concept that aligns with your needs and objectives and provides a strong foundation for the subsequent phases of the project. It is a collaborative process that requires effective communication to ensure that the project aligns with your vision and objectives.
3. DESIGN DEVELOPMENT PHASE
After receiving your input on the concept design, I will further develop the chosen concept, considering functionality, aesthetics, and budget. Together we will develop the look and feel of the project, make initial product and material selections, and strategize the lighting layouts.
4. CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS PHASE
I will create comprehensive and detailed construction drawings, product specifications, and documents required for obtaining permits and for constructing the project.
5. CONTRACTOR SELECTION ASSISTANCE
I will assist you in meeting with contractors to describe the project and answer questions, provide contractors with digital files of the documents, review contracts, and review estimates and pricing.
6. CONSTRUCTION PHASE SERVICES
Throughout the construction phase, I will provide on-site visits to observe the construction progress, answer questions, and ensure that the project is built in accordance with the design, specification, and industry standards.
