Architecture Design Services
At Core Design Impact, our integrated design approach is at the forefront of each of our processes through the design and construction phases of our projects. The "one team, one direction" focus of our project management, architectural and engineering teams creates a holistic solution for each of our clients unique design problems.
The following project design phases help bring clarity and order to what can be a pretty complex design process. All phases may not be a part of a project's standard scope, and length may vary upon complexity of project.
Pre-design services include site analysis and selection, feasibility studies, programming, as-built drawings and code analysis.
Research and determine the owner's criteria for the project.
The concept design phase includes test-fit layouts, preliminary construction cost estimates, building massing studies, and RFP responses.
Explore design concepts and present options to client for approval.
Schematic design takes the curated information from the pre-design and concept design phases, and begins to lay it out into floor plan form. The deliverables of this phase include a site plan, floor plans, fundamental elevations, sections and details, area analysis, 3d perspectives or renderings, and outline specifications.
Refine and develop design while incorporating the impacts of most major decisions, and major coordination of structural and MEP systems.
Design development consists of finalization of room sizes, equipment locations, and product, materials and systems selection. Additional deliverables may include enlarged plans, reflected ceiling plans, interior elevations, supplementary details, and specifications.
Final preparation of technical documents required for construction and approval of authority having jurisdiction.
The construction documents phase consists of the full detailing of all of the documents in the previous phases along with additional documents and specifications as required.
