Project Phases

Good design is the synthesis of many disparate ideas into a thoughtful whole, and while the steps listed below represent a linear path, the way we arrive at the final design isn’t always linear. It’s an iterative process, which leads to a product; it’s not a known product from the beginning. The product is the result of following the design process to its logical endpoint. This, we believe, is what makes custom design so exciting and memorable – we create it together based on your specific situation and needs. At the end of the process, you’ll have a thoughtfully designed project and the shared experience of designing it.

Architects, for the most part, all use a similar series of steps to arrive at a finished project. There are six general phases:

Phase 1 - Predesign

Site analysis, programming, existing conditions, budgeting, statutory code review.

Phase 2 - Schematic Design

Basic design concept generation

Phase 3 - Design Development

Refinement of the selected design concept from Phase 2

Phase 4 - Construction documentation

Detailed drawings, schedules and specifications.

Phase 5 - Tendering & procurement

Assist in contract award / negotiation with Builder

Phase 6 - Contract Administration

Observe construction + administration of the building contract                                                              

The phases are sequential and they build on the work completed and agreed to in each preceding phase.  We start with the general and refine the design to the very specific. There’s lot of decisions along the way and this gradation organises those decisions into manageable portions.
