Project Phases
Architectural services and the design and construction process can be categorized into four distinct phases that are industry standards: Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documents and Construction Administration. Each project has its own requirements unique to the client's needs and location of the site. Some of the architectural services within each phase may be modified, limited or eliminated depending on the client's budget.
Schematic Design Phase
  • We will work out alternative approaches to the design with you based upon your program.
  • We will prepare schematic design drawings, sometimes referred to as the master plan, usually freehand, informal drawings based upon the mutually agreed-upon program, schedule and construction budget requirements. These will describe the project and provide a basis for discussing budgets, etc. The drawings at this phase usually include a floor plan and a site plan. Once the design is approved by you we will move on to the next phase.
