Here is an outline of a typical design/construction process. As with design we can adapt this process to each individual project.
1 Predesign- identify project’s program objectives, gather data on the client’s needs and the sites offering and constraints, establish a design outline and organize wants from needs.
2 Schematic design- Synthesizing the information gathered in Predesign into a first round of formal design ideas.
3 Design Development- adding detail to the chosen schematic design, providing more detail of design scope and working with the construction team to develop a preliminary budget.
4 Permit documents- drawn and written documents for review by regulatory and review boards. This includes submitting and acquiring required permits by either the design or construction teams.
5 Construction documents- the creation of final drawings used for construction.
6 Preconstruction – meeting of the design and construction teams to finalize budget, schedule and set up to begin work.
7 Construction administration- we are available to assist the construction team with achieving a job complete on time and on budget

Adaptdesign believes that good architecture can have a positive effect in your life
Good architectural design, to us, is a process that works well over time, expressing and enhancing how you live, work, and grow your efficiencies along with your comforts. In the end, a design is only sustainable when its use and comfort are enjoyed by many generations with minimal alteration.
