Issued February 10, 2014.
We propose five, sequential design phases: Schematic Design, Design Development, Pricing, Construction Documents,
and Construction Administration.
Schematic Design (SD)
During SD, we will create a thorough list of project objectives, measure the affected spaces, draw base plans, develop
schematic design options in 2-D and 3-D, and review options with the Owner. The SD phase includes the following steps:
Programming Meeting: Architect will review a checklist with the Owner to collect complete information
regarding desired size, function, and aesthetic of new or renovated spaces.
Architect will measure existing house and create base drawings in 2-D and 3-D for use during design.
Architect will create initial design options and review with Owner in person.
Duration of SD phase: 3-4 weeks
Design Development (DD)
The next step is to refine and revise. Once the Owner selects a design direction, the Architect adds detail and incorporates
requested changes. These are then reviewed in-person. The DD phase includes the following steps:
Architect revises drawings based on Owner feedback from SD phase.
Architect reviews changes with Owner.
Duration of DD phase: 1-2 weeks
Once the basic design is developed to the Owner’s satisfaction, preliminary pricing may be obtained from professional
contractors. During this phase, the Architect produces pricing drawings, assists in contractor selection, distributes
drawings, and receives estimates. Pricing drawings include:
A narrative description of project scope
Floor plans and 3-D views that describe extent of demolition and new construction
A list of specific products, fixtures, and materials to be included in the estimate as well as quantities of
significant materials such as flooring, counter tops, and tile
Instructions for preparation and itemization of estimates to facilitate comparison
Duration of Pricing phase: 2-3 weeks
