Kevin Patrick O'Brien, Architect Inc.
"Architecture; the balance of Art and Science"
The Design Process is comprised of three Phases; Schematic Design, Design Development and Construction Documents.
Schematic Design: The Customer brings me their outline of Ideas, Images and Vision to the first Programming Meeting. The challenge is to combine these artistic elements with the technical requirements and then communicate the clients Dream into a graphic form.
Design Development: In this Phase we start the computer drafting work and further refine the design intent. Working out the numerous details in this phase allows for a smooth transition into the Construction Document Phase.
Construction Documents: In this Phase we produce the Technical Drawings that define the construction requirements. Working with your General Contractor you will be selecting specific materials, finishes, fixtures and developing the Construction Budget. Structural Design, Engineering and Drafting is not included in our Scope of Services.
