​Post Occupancy Evaluation
​Contracts often call for the Architect to perform a Post Occupancy Evalution. Usually this service is performed about ten months after construction completion and is intended to highlight any potential warranty issues that may be occurring prior to the expiration of the standard General Contractor's one-year warranty period.

​​​SERVICES

Project Close Out
​The close-out of a construction project from an Architect’s perspective entails a number of services. The creation of a project Punch List provides the Client with a list of work that is either incomplete or in need of correction. The verification of the completed punch list is usually sufficient to issue a Certificate of Substantial Completion which is a legal document with a number of contractual consequences. Architect’s can also be asked to produce Record Drawings of the project for the Client's use by utilizing the contractor’s field modified documents. 

Programming
Programming is a process of assisting clients in the development of a set of standards for the spatial design of a future building and/or development.  This process provides the client with a tangible look at the scale and magnitude of their proposed project, and can be used to assist in establishing baseline budgets for planning purposes based on current construction trends and assumed levels of quality and efficiency.

​Adaptive Re-Use

Feasibility Analysis

Feasibility Services are performed to assist clients in understanding whether or not a proposed project is technically achievable for a particular piece of property. Services may include local zoning research, Environmental Site Assessments, site analysis/design and building diagramming one or more concepts, as needed.

Construction Administration (CA)
​​During the Construction Administration process, the Architect serves their Client by observing the construction process in an effort to verify compliance of the work with the intent of the Construction Documents. The Architect typically reviews contractor submittal information on proposed products, verifies compliance of the selected products, attends construction progress meetings, answers questions that arise, and issues field reports highlighting the progress of the project, as well as any potential deficiencies that are observed. Architect services can be limited, or extensive, during this phase of a project. 

​Sustainable Design

​Bidding and Negotiation (Bid)
​​
This is the phase where the Architect assists the Client in acquiring and reviewing construction bid proposals for their project. The Architect may also be asked to assist in the Negotiation of the contract between the Client and the selected building contractor. Other services may be involved, as well. 

​​​​​3D Visualization

Schematic Design (SD)
The information assembled during the programming phase is used in the Schematic Design process.  Schematic Design interprets the data assembled during the Programming phase and incorporates it into spatial concepts that can evolve into a final design.​​

​SERVICES

Master Planning

Master Planning can include Feasibility Analysis but is more extensive. Focusing on larger scale and/or multi-phased developments, Master Planning aims to address a variety of designs and planning issues including, but not limited to, site connectivity, infrastructure planning, environmental impacts, budgeting by phases, and building program development.​

​Project Budgeting
​Call for details

 ​Design Development (DD)
The Design Development stage builds on previous phases.  It is during this phase that the Schematic Design is developed inclusive of specific details related to the development of the particular spaces and/or uses. This phase takes the broader Schematic Design and adds layers of detail and coordination of project-specific data.

​​Construction Documents (CD)
​Construction Documents are the ultimate instruments of service that Architects offer their clients. These are typically the final legal drawing and specification documents necessary to bid, permit and construct a project. Construction Documents may include Civil, Architectural, Structural, Mechanical, Plumbing, Electrical, and Fire Protection drawings. Other specialty drawings can also be included as part of the Construction Document Package, as needed.
