What are the steps in the design process?

The from conception to realization, the design process involves multiple phases. Depending on your project, different phases could be necessary to achieve the best results. Small projects may require fewer phases while larger projects may require more phases. Each of which is integral in the success of a project. A typical architectural design process may include the following.

  1. Pre-Design
  2. Schematic Design
  3. Design Development
  4. Construction Documents
  5. Government Review
  6. Bidding Assistance
  7. Contract Administration

For a project that also includes interior design, there are sub-phases of this process that may coincide with the architectural design process.

Each phase can have it’s own set of goals, challenges, and achievements. In the following weeks, Hauck Architecture will outline the different project phases in more detail. We will discuss what type of projects can benefict from the different phases with examples of real projects . If you just can’t wait, the Process section of our site gives an outline of what to expect.
