Programming is the activity of determining the “program”, or set of needs that a building must fulfill. When engaged for these services, we will work directly with you to establish and document these requirements to shape the project at the onset of the project. This is a collaborative and exciting process.
Takes the ideas from Schematic Design into detailed drawings to illustrate other aspects of the proposed design. Floor plans show all the rooms in the correct sizes and shapes. Outline specifications are prepared listing the major materials and room finishes.
Once Design Development is concluded, and approval of the design is final, we proceed to Construction Documents. The contractor will use these to establish actual construction cost and to build the project. The drawings and specifications become part of the building contract.
While the contractor will physically construct the building, we can assist you in making sure the project is built according to the plans. We can make site visits to observe construction, review and approve the contractor’s application for payment, and keep the owner informed of the project’s progress.
