Project Development

How vision becomes reality. Clients frequently inquire about the step-by-step building process. While there may be some overlap and concurrent work for efficiency, here is a concise overview from conceptualization to completion.

1. Pre-Design Phase:

  • Project Initiation: The design team and the client come together to discuss the project's objectives, vision, and purpose. This includes understanding the client's needs, preliminary budget, timeline, and any specific requirements or constraints.

  • Site Analysis: Analysis of the project site is conducted to understand its physical characteristics, topography, climate, environmental factors, and any zoning or regulatory considerations. This analysis helps inform design decisions.

  • Programming: This involves gathering information about the project's functional requirements, spatial needs, sizes, relationships, and any special considerations.

  • Feasibility & Density Studies: Studies are performed to assess the project's viability, considering factors such as budget, site constraints, and regulatory requirements.

  • Stakeholder Engagement: This involves engaging with various stakeholders, including clients, end-users, community representatives, and relevant Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). Their perspectives are sought to understand needs and ensure alignment with project goals.

By the end of the Pre-Design Phase there should be a thorough understanding of project goals, site conditions, requirements, and budget. This information shapes the subsequent design phases, allowing the project concept to be developed and refined in greater detail.
