Our Practice Process

We've distilled our design process into 4 Phases – the same phases we have been using for more than 25 years, In these phases, you will work closely with a Principal-In-Charge as your point of contact.

1

Pre-Design

The first steps of a project are to gain an understanding of the proposed site and the comprehension of the client’s needs and vision.

We call that “programming”. Frequently, the program is clarified or refined in this phase, as general objectives and desires are articulated. Other basic parameters are established as well, including code research, rough budgets and time lines.

2

Design

Schematic Design:

Typically, several design options get evaluated in the schematic design phase.

The purpose is to find the right design concept without getting lost in details too soon. This process is informed by the site analysis in pre-design and the research of local building codes and elements.Site-specific concerns, combined with our experience form the backdrop for the creative process of translating the client’s program and preferences into a coherent design. The project begins to take shape, first as a loose sketch, and later as CAD plans and 3-D renderings. As constraints are encountered and various possibilities explored, we work closely with the client to focus the goals of the project into an innovative design that merges function, form, environment and budget.

Design Development

In the Design Development phase, the design that emerged out of the schematic phase gets refined, and the structure of the building evolves. There is still plenty of interaction with the client; In a commercial project, the focus shifts to issues such as space optimization or adaptability. Interaction with consultants intensifies, involving structural and mechanical, plumbing and electrical engineering. Larger, more complex projects might require geotechnical and civil engineers, landscape architects, lighting or interior designers, acoustical engineers, and so on. Bringing in a contractor early is wise for any kind of project, primarily to help assess costs and allow adjustments while it’s still relatively easy. At the end of design development, all basic parameters of the building are established in plan, elevation and section drawings.

Construction Documents

Our designers will meet the customer to gather more Information.

4

Construction Administration & Close Out

After the project breaks ground, it is the responsibility of the contractor to implement the plans.

However, a certain level of oversight is needed to ensure the proper execution of a design, and to make sure that a building reaches its potential. Requests for clarification or additional details may come from the jobsite. Good communication between the contractor and the architect is in the client’s best interest, and regular site visits during construction are of great value.
