The constant endeavor of The AEC Associates Architectural Drafting Services is to convert the dream castles of their clients into solid structures of brick and mortar, steel and concrete. Architecture is, no doubt, a creative profession, yet Architectural drafting services try to identify a few important phases of the design process to streamline their functioning and improve their efficiency. These phases hold a great significance not only for the design team but also for the clients as the final outcome of all these efforts depend a lot on efficient completion of each of them. Following is a brief discussion on some of the main phases of the design process.
- The conceptualization stage
Once you have identified the basic requirements, likes and dislikes, preferences and style quotient of the client, you start to work on the initial design scheme. This conceptualization stage is very important for Architectural drafting services as it sets the tone for the entire project. You prepare rough sketches illustrating the basic concepts of the design, spatial relationships and basic form of the proposed structure. One needs the client’s approval before moving on to the next stages.
- The design development stage
Having obtained the client’s approval for the schematic design, your design team starts to develop the design in more detail. You finalize the design in nearly all aspects, including planning, the exterior and the interior, material specification, general structural details, and placement of window and doors etc. The site plan, elevations, sections and views etc are prepared to have elaborate discussions with the client so the exact idea of the final structure is conveyed accurately.
- Construction documentation
Preparing the detailed construction documentation is the concluding phase of the design process for Architectural drafting services. You have to produce detailed dimension drawings with every conceivable detail for the actual construction stage, ensuring that general contractor and sub contractors don’t have any confusions or misinterpretations regarding the design. All the specifications for construction details and materials are prepared with utmost precision for construction process to be smooth and error-free.
