Site Review & Consultation
Initial project consultations help our design team understand your needs and goals. Don't worry about having too little or too much information. Depending on the project we may recommend starting with a Site Review to better define the buildable space or identify any special considerations before the design phase starts.
Once our team has a clear understanding of your design goals, the first part of the design phase is a preliminary floor plan. Getting the spaces of the home laid out to your specifics is the critical first step. After the floor plan is fine tuned, exterior elevations are created. Each step of the design phase your designer will engage you for feedback and approval.
When the design phase is completed (floor plan and exterior elevations are approved) our team gets to work on the construction documents that support the design. Construction Documents consist of the Foundation Plan, Roof Framing Plan, Floor Framing Plan (if any), Sections and Details, plus a suggested Electrical Layout.
With the construction documents prepared it may be time to bring in additional professionals to move your project forward. From our extensive experience in the PNW, Associated Designs can recommend additional professionals whether it’s a structural engineering, truss manufacturer, or other professionals necessary to obtain a building permit.
The last step before breaking ground! Building departments are moving towards electronic submittal. We can provide additional support for homeowners and builders needing assistance with the process. For building jurisdictions still accepting plans over the counter, we also provide printing services to ensure you have enough copies to get you on your way!
