This service includes all phases of design and construction drawings. This service takes the Client and Architect's ideas, budget, and site conditions and combines them into numerous small scale initial design concept sketches.
Working with the Client, the concepts are fine tuned into final design layout. Communicating the design concept onto paper is a very important part of the process, and thus all client contact and design work is done personally by George in order to best understand his Client's desires, and to get the most creative solutions.
After final design, construction drawings are started on AutoCAD by the Project Managers. These drawings include a site plan, floor plans, exterior elevations, building sections, full structural layout & details, interior elevations & cabinetry drawings, all material specifications & details. They also include plumbing, mechanical, electrical layout & product selections, specifications and engineering fees.
Assistance with contractor selection and project bidding occurs after the construction drawings are complete. During construction, periodic job site visits will occur to monitor construction and to create a team relationship with the Contractor and Client. This service is perfect for out-of-town or other Clients who want a fully designed home, and also want the Architect to act as an advocate for them during the entire home building process.
This service is intended to create a shell set of drawings as needed for bidding and construction.
We usually begin with some type of concept or plan provided by the Client. This plan is then discussed and modified by George to fit into the Montana environment, and is incorporated into a final design layout. This set of construction drawings includes floor plans, exterior elevations, building section, and structural layout.
The service does NOT include product selection, specific detailing, interior or cabinetry drawings, electrical, mechanical, plumbing layouts, site plan, or construction observation, etc. These interior selection items are to be selected and/or completed by Owner and Contractor. This level of service is designed for the Client who wants professional design service, yet is comfortable with working on his own to make decisions and selections with their Contractor.
