What We Do
This is a data-gathering phase. We start by exploring your vision for the project, including character, aesthetics, and a list of spaces and their intended use. If your project is new construction, we visit the site to evaluate the landscape, views, solar analysis, access, utilities, and your vision for siting the structure.
During this phase you share images collected from magazines, books, Houzz, or Pinterest—we use your inspiration to generate ideas. Additionally, ADB Design Group may take you on tours of built projects to gauge your reaction to layout and design elements.
ADB Design Group draws concept designs based on pre-design. This is the time to dream, thinking of all possibilities. Schematic design evolves over a series of meetings and is intended to explore a range of potential approaches to consider. We generate 3D renderings as well as preliminary drawings, which may include a site plan, floor plans, building sections, exterior, and interior elevations, preliminary structural systems, and energy evaluation.
ADB Design Group prepares detailed drawings to illustrate the proposed design, including plans, elevations, and sections, as well as mechanical, plumbing, and electrical system concepts. We also present material options for exterior and interior finishes. Our 3D model allows you the chance to “walk” through your home so you are confident in the design before construction starts.
At the conclusion of design development, ADB Group will produce a set of drawings specifications used to solicit preliminary construction pricing estimates from contractors. This is the time when you begin to test the fit between what you want, what you need, and what you want to spend.
This is when final decisions are made. Based on the pricing, budget, and evolution of the design, ADB Group develops a set of architectural drawings that the contractor will use to establish actual construction costs, obtain permits, and build the project.
There are a number of ways to select a contractor. You may already have a contractor or ADB Group who can make recommendations; this contractor can join the owner–architect team early in the design process. Alternatively, This Group can conduct a formal bidding process with multiple potential contractors, and we will assist you in evaluating the bids prior to contractor selection. This phase concludes when a permit is obtained and a contractor is hired.
This is when your project is built. During construction, ADB Design Group makes regular site visits to ensure the built structure matches the design intent. We review all contractor requests for payment and any change order requests, and we keep you informed of construction progress. At completion, ADB Group conducts a final project closeout with a punch list, and we do a detailed review of the contractor’s final payment request.
This is the moment you have been dreaming of—construction is finished and it’s time to enjoy your new space!
