Architectural Design & Construction Process:
Typically the architectural design and construction process at ARCH-AIDE, LLC is a series of six sequential phases. The scope of each project, as well as, the client's individual preferences will determine the services that are provided. The entire process for Residential projects typically takes approximately 3-4 months from initial design to project completion depending on size, complexity, and scope of the project.
Phase 1 - Pre-Design
The Pre-Design Phase is the information gathering phase. At this point we are deciding what to build. In the beginning of each new project we take the time to listen to our clients so that we understand the design goals, objectives and parameters of our clients in order to make good design decisions. Much of this phase is completed on paper so changes can be made easily and inexpensively.
Phase 2 - Concept Design
The Concept Design Phase is the exploration phase. We are developing rough sketches and layouts based on the information in the first phase. During this phase the architect and client work together as a team. We also begin developing the floor plans and elevations in a basic format to start the process of preliminary pricing.
Phase 3 - Design Development
In the Design Development Phase, concept drawings are advanced to a higher level of detail and refinement. During this phase, a more comprehensive set of Design Documents is developed.
Phase 4 - Construction Documents
During the Construction Documents Phase we complete a structural analysis and specify materials and products. The construction documents contain very detailed information and become the basis for your contract with the builder.
Phase 5 - Bidding & Negotiation
After construction documents are completed, drawings are printed and distributed for bidding. After bids are received, construction contracts are prepared, revised if necessary, and reviewed by our firm on the owner's behalf and construction is scheduled.
Phase 6 - Construction Administration
During construction we make frequent inspections to make sure everything is in conformance with the original design. We also work with subcontractors and make recommendations as needed. At the end of phase 6 your design on paper will become a reality.
