BUILDING WITH STEEL STRUCTURES
The Steps in the Design Build Process
We at Ecosteel are here to help you through every step of your project. From the initial design development phase, through construction drawings and onward, we will be there every step of the way, guiding you through what may seem a confusing process.
5 Phases of Architecture & Steel Design
If you’re an Architect you’re probably familiar with the Five Phases of Architecture. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) defines them as:
1. Schematic Design
2. Design Development
3. Contract Documents
5. Construction Administration
In order to better help you understand how we help within each phase and why architects organize contracts around them, we’ve put together this brief overview to give you a better sense of where your project fits in.
If you like to be in the thick of things and your projects are tailor-made to suit your specific client needs then Ecosteel is the solution for you. We take an approach that is grounded in listening, asking questions, and understanding how your project will help advance sustainability. We do this through our unique design process with steel. The result is that we get to know you and your business so that together we can design a space uniquely tailored to fit well into the community and meet all the needs of your client.
Starting the design process can be overwhelming. You need help envisioning how your project will develop and how it will look after it’s completed. That’s why we work directly with you to determine the perfect layout, design, and structure of your project to deliver a truly personalized experience that surpasses all your client’s expectations. This is where you have the opportunity to make changes to your plan, add in new ideas and see your vision come to life. Design Development is also when we review all aspects of the project — construction cost, maintenance, material selection, and more — to ensure you are getting what you need for the best experience possible.
