Preliminary Assessment

Project Flow of Envisioned Project

Design Phase Construction Phase Residential Architecture Residential Architecture Residential Architecture Council Approval

Appraisal and definition of the project: 

During the first stage, we will assist you in defining the scope of the project.

We will also identify any Town planning and Title Deed restrictions, identify other stakeholders/consultants which might be needed, set up a preliminary project flow, and assist in projecting costs.

Concept Design: 

Here the project scope is developed into a more advanced stage. As your Residential Architectural Professional, we will use conceptual 3D drawings, in which we will consider the orientation, space organization, circulation, and site layout.

At this stage a preliminary project budget, preliminary project construction programme (and in some cases a preliminary cash flow forecast) will be prepared. But because it’s still early in the project it will prove difficult to make conclusive project projections and/or calculations.

Design Development: 

During this stage the design is developed into a set of plans, sections and elevations which explicate the end-result of the envisioned building.

Attention is given to materials and finishes - the cost implications of finishes can be investigated during this stage.

Once this stage is approved by you, the architectural professional will continue with the “working drawings” which takes us to the next stage.

Technical Documentation: 

The working drawings are the nuts & bolts of the project process.

These are technical documents which show such things as set-out dimensions, materials, levels, wall heights, beam sizes and window and door locations.

These drawings are often coordinated with civil, structural and mechanical engineer’s drawings.

Contract Administration and Inspection: 

This is the practical stage of the building where once again, as your Architectural Professional we will prove very useful.

As your Architectural Professional we will assist you in selecting a competent Project Manager, set up and handle the contract documents and do the general administration of the project.
