Step-by-Step Design Development

Those who have worked with an architect before know that there are many steps between the first consultation and the first day of construction. One of these stages is the design development (DD) phase.

The design development phase accounts for roughly 20% of an architectural firm’s work with a client. After completing the schematic designs for the project, the client and architect work together to select materials for the property. Examples of these materials and considerations include:

  • Fixtures
  • Appliances
  • Windows
  • Doors
  • And more

Revisions and Refinement

After making decisions related to appliances and other specifics, our team returns to the original schematic designs and makes the appropriate changes. The revisions ensure that all contractors take these unique demands into account during the building process.

Preliminary Engineering

With these revised sketches, our team will start to take the electrical, plumbing, and ventilation systems into consideration. We may also conduct an energy analysis to ensure that all operations progress at a sustainable level.

Start-to-Finish Project Management

With so many ideas making their way into your designs for the future, it can be hard to keep track of the mounting costs. Thankfully, we are skilled project managers. We take note of costs every step of the way, ensuring we never go over budget.
