New Home Design Process
The design process can be broken down into four phases: Preliminary Design, Schematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Document phases.
The Preliminary Design phase consists of a review of the owner’s Program Outline, budget , and floorplan, if available, and/or assisting the owner in developing these criteria; researching applicable local city zoning and building code requirements for the project; and developing concept floor plans from the previous criteria to establish spacial relationships and approximate square footages for the project.
The Schematic Design phase consists of producing presentation drawings of refined concept floor plans, including approximate square footages; producing rendered elevation sketches to describe the material’s stylistic character, and overall massing of the of the proposed residence; assisting the owner in selecting a contractor, if needed; and assisting the owner in selecting any required or requested consultant, i.e. structural, lighting, landscape, etc.
The Design Development phase consists of translating the approved Schematic Design floor plan with any owner-requested modifications into a computer-generated format and reproduce at 1/4″ = 1′- 0″ scale, with precise square footage information for owner’s review; and producing a roof plan and designing the rear and associated side elevations based upon the schematic front elevation, which will be coordinated to create a logical, holistic crafted structure.
The Construction Document phase consists of finalizing building and zoning codification, and review with authorities having jurisdiction; producing a Construction Document package for pricing and construction of the project; and participating in owner, contractor, and inter-professional conferences as required for the timely and effective completion of the project.
