Idea Phase

During the idea phase, we bridge our years of training and experience with the desires and priorities of the land owner. Small or large, ideas are significant – especially if the ideas are for places where you spend valued time.

In this phase, a design professional works with you to make ideas that seem “out of reach” attainable. Through this creative process, a discovery of the overarching design intent takes form. Well-founded ideas during the design phase save mistakes and maximize success.

Idea Phase Steps:

  • Site visits
  • Defining the scope of project
  • Budget considerations
  • Site analysis
  • Existing conditions base plan
  • Exploration of potential ideas
  • Feasibility study of ideas
  • Settle on design direction

Concept Phase

In this phase, ideas meet design. Priorities discovered in the Idea Phase will translate into technical drawings that can be approved by the land owner, used for pricing, scaling, identifying the right skill set for delivery, and performing comparisons.

Concept Phase Steps:

  • Develop concept design
  • Master planning
  • CAD drafting
  • Perspectives
  • 3D modeling

Documentation Phase

After settling on final concepts, this phase allows time to test the concepts, prepare drawings, notes, technical specifications to receive bids, plan construction, and obtain necessary permits. Detailed blueprints are created so that contractors are prepared for the next phase in the design process.

Documentation Phase Steps:

  • Detailing plans
  • Quantities
  • Tendered to potential contractors

Management Phase

During the construction phase the team arrives to build and deliver your project. The designer and all allied parties work together toward a successful delivery. The designer is available to the build team and the landowner, assisting with verification of materials, transferring vision to the build team, communicating with you, comparing requirements to delivery, and redesigning should the unexpected occur.

Management Phase Steps:

  • Meetings with contractor
  • Site inspections
  • Transfer of knowledge
  • Redesigns
  • Changes, artistic direction
  • Quality assurance
