Schematic Design - This is the same as preliminary design. Many times we will assist clients by coming up with a preliminary design, that the client will then use for fundraising or marketing purposes. The project development can be put on hold until the client is ready to move forward. This is very similar to the work done to help Churches start a fundraising campaign, or to help schools promote a bond issue.
Code Review - We can assist clients with code review of existing buildings, to determine what kind of improvements or updates will be required, for a buildng to be in compliance with current building codes.
Masterplanning - This is similar to schematic design. In masterplanning, often times we explore multiple design concepts, particularly as the building or buildings could fit onto a particular site in different configurations, to determine the best possible use of the land. We always take into account the "what if" scenarios, such as what if the building needs to be expanded in the future. Traffic patterns, parking, pedestrian access, landscaping, and other variables are all taken into consideration.
3D Visualization - We have the tools available to give you a very realistic look of your project, before the drawings are ever finalized. This way, you have a very good idea of what you are getting, before construction ever begins.
Full Architectural Services - This is the a full blown, traditional set of architectural services. This includes schematic design, design development, and construction documents (commonly called blueprints). Once the construction documents are complete, we will assist you in bidding the project out to multiple contractors. Afterwards, we will write a contract between you and your selected contractor. Finally, we will stay involved through construcction, to ensure that the building is build as planned, and that you are getting your money's worth from your selected contractor.
(Please note that the services provided can be customized to your specific needs. We would love to speak with you over the phone or in person, to get an idea of what services you need, prior to providing you with a fee proposal.)
