Let’s discuss some common process step by step –
Step 1: Interview
Building a house is a dream of most of the people, so before starting the process architects are interviewed.
If there is a good sync with each other the process can start. Some home owners may already have their own friends or recommendations as finding architect so that they skip this interview process.
Architects shows their past project details and few other examples to get their clients.
Step 2: Gathering information and documentation
After a brief discussion with homeowner’s goals, needs and requirements, the architect visits the site.
It is to review the sites existing condition and take as-built measurements. On the basis of this as-built measurement, plans are created and a copy is provided to the homeowner for their reference.
These plans are just simple plans with a minimal set that shows what currently exists on site. Later, a surveyor is called to make a site survey.
This survey eventually incorporates into the as-built documents.
The architect then visits the government departments to review the applicable records that include as-built diagrams of an existing home.
The architects gather the information regarding agencies of city and state with reference to specific land and building code as well as pre-submittal and pre-permit procedures.
Architects create the work schedule plan to outline what to be done and when to be done.
Step 3: Schematic Design and Feasibility
As the Residential architects in Koramangala, we generate 2-3 designs that includes the information from step 2.
At the 3rd stage architects bring out the concept designs. The architect explores on how to approach the house and move through the house.
How the home feels is prime focus of this stage. The location of functions within the house is graphically drawn in the plan.
This simple plan is made to show the relationship among the space and functions. Materials to be used become part of this stage and budget is confirmed for overall project.
There are at least 2 to 4 meetings based on this. The architect guides home owners in taking decision on various schematic options.
Step 4: Design Development + Permit Documents
In this stage the graphics evolves into actual architecture. The architects make the schematic drawings into permit documents.
The drawings are made with regards to details and methods. Architects further define the window opening with mullion and opening locations.
The structural engineer and other consultants information is further coordinated with the design drawings.
The information on materials used, appliances and relevant code are further included into the project. The home may continue to make decisions at most of stages.
Step 5: Construction Documents + Permit Acquisition
Set of permit drawing is simply known as construction set. This document of permit is used to submit, coordinate and obtain the permit for building construction.
Most of the city/state doesn’t review each and every details of a home.
They just want to make you are constructing as per rules of the state, city and local codes. The drawing gets into more detailing at this stage after the permission is granted.
