We embrace a culture of collaboration within our workplace and with our clients. This requires a disciplined, inclusive process with an emphasis on listening and results in work that is specifically crafted for each client and site.
AB – AS BUILT (± 03%)
We begin with thorough documentation of existing conditions (via survey and/or measuring) so that we have an accurate representation of context. Meanwhile, we ask you to describe your desires (via lists, photos, magazine cutouts or online ideabooks) and we translate them into your program.
SD – SCHEMATIC DESIGN (±25%)
Through ArchiCAD’s 3D modeling your program is interpreted and a collaborative exchange begins. Our design conversation is facilitated by a series of meetings which include discussion of probable cost (OPC), a review of green building strategies and your opportunity for input. At the end of the SD phase you will have approved the 3D model, the dimensioned plans and the OPC.
DD- DESIGN DEVELOPMENT (±10%) (± 03%)
Upon approval of the SD Model we begin developing a clearer understanding of material usage and detailing. Collaboration continues to be a rich exchange as we begin to define fixture and material selections.
CD I – CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS I (±45%)
From the 3D model we generate and refine the detailed drawings needed for bidding, permits and construction. We pride ourselves on accurate and thorough drawings informed by experience, your program and budgetary target. Drawings are accompanied by custom specifications to direct the bid process.
BN- BID & NEGOTIATION (±04%)
With drawings and specifications approximately 95% complete, we propose a list of potential contractors to include in the bid documents. Our primary aim is to facilitate your contractor selection and we can assist as much, or as little, as needed.
CDII – CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS II PHASE (±05%)
After the contractor is selected a “value engineering” process (with input from your chosen contractor) informs completion of the CD’s so that a construction contract can be signed.
CA – CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION PHASE (±08%)
Finally, PRP remains engaged throughout construction through site visits and ongoing communication with the contractor. Whether augmenting owner oversight or providing a comprehensive service we serve as your advocate, helping to ensure that the finished product meets or exceeds expectation.
