Programming is the first step and is a process during which information about a project is collected, analyzed, and clearly stated to provide a basis for design. Programming is broken down into two phases:
Design is the second step in the process and is driven by the information obtained in step one:
Preliminary floor plan creation – Schematic drawings of a site plan, floor plans and exterior elevations are created and presented to the client. These schematics are then refined until project requirements are satisfied and floor plans are approved by the client. Upon approval of the basic floor plans, a 3D model will be created to help visualize the exterior and interior of the project.
After the completion of the design phase and approval of the design, a set of working drawings that will be used for bidding, permit approval and construction are completed. During this phase an engineer will be consulted and a structural review will take place. Floor plans, floor coverings, ceiling details, exterior details, electrical, and lighting will be reviewed and finalized during this phase. Prior to completion of the drawings, an approval of final working drawings is recommended.
Upon completion of working drawings, the bidding process can start in which the client’s selected contractor(s) will present construction proposals based on the working drawings & client specifications. The selected contractor or owner will submit the working drawings to the city for the permit approval process.
Construction of the project begins. On site meetings with designer may be arranged as needed. On site job observation is optional and will help to ensure construction is in accordance with working documents & specifications.
Basic working documents & drawings prepared from owner’s working designs (existing floor plans, mail order plans, owner designed plans, etc.). Plans will be created utilizing a 3D model and a final color rendering is included. Standard construction methods, materials and/ or site.
