Before starting the design, the designer collects all basic information by visiting the site. The identity and character of the client will be greatly dealt with to materialize the cultural demand and reach a suitable architectural response.
The building program provided by the client will be properly studied and the consultant will present possible suggestions, if present.
2. Preliminary Design Stage
The scheme design, which is a single-lined, dimensioned and labeled floor plan, shows major sections and is envisaged with volumetric composition and discussion. This is prepared based on the collected data and data given by the client. After this proper drawing, well-furnished floor plans will be submitted for discussion to our engineering team.
As per the comment and suggestions given by the engineering team, the preliminary design will be prepared and checked by the members before it is sent to the client.
The preliminary design includes all the requirements set by the client. Floor plans, elevations and sections in appropriate scale showing building shape, dimensions and room sizes, openings, locations, size and access to buildings, room occupancy and furnishing and building materials for structure and architecture shall be presented.
It also includes a design report including a provisional cost estimate and electrical and sanitary draft drawings. A three-dimensional perspective rendering presentation of the major volumes will accompany the preliminary design. Model of the building can also be constructed with additional agreement as per the client’s further requirements
3. Final Design
The final design work will continue and serve as basis for construction. After the approval of the preliminary design by the client considering the necessary comments (If any) the final working drawing will be prepared in scale.
Based on the final architectural design and other engineering designs, structural, electrical, sanitary designs and all necessary construction detail drawings will be started.
