Our services include five design phases from Schematic design, Design Development, Construction Documents to Construction Administration.
Schematic Design is similar with Concept Design which involves sweeping, suggestive lines on the page or the quick organization and re-organization of 3D materials, while the schematic design stage is more precise. In Schematic Design Stage client is heavily participate in the process.
The purpose of SD is to produce drafts based on the initial discussions between designer and client. Another words this stage determines if we are on the same page with outlined idea of the project overall. This allows both parties to respond immediately and visually to a client’s description of what they want.
Developing these sketches or drafts, designers take into account the area and arrangement of the rooms on site, as well as local zoning rules urban exterior design codes and any other physical specifications that were made during the programming strategy phase.
Development design stage should include information about building systems (structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, HVAC) and potential finishes, both exterior and interior. While most of the drawings made during the schematic design phase are likely to be plans these should be accompanied by elevations and sketches of suggested details, windows/doors schedules and other schemes and calculations.
For interior design also includes: Interior building materials and finishes, furniture and equipment selection and layouts, lighting and technology designs, cabinetry and custom fabrications, mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems (some commercial projects requires engineers professional involvements).
The Construction Documents stage builds upon the Design Development work by updating the Basis of Design and producing the plans, drawings, and specifications needed to price and build the project.
For drawings developing our team utilizes the BIM system
