What to Expect When Working with Chris Cooke Architecture
Conversation & Study Phase
Before we begin any work, we meet with our clients to discuss what they want to create. Whether that’s a new commercial or home design, or transforming their current space with a renovation.
After we have familiarized ourselves with your commercial or home design wants and needs, we will move into the study phase. This approach executes a study-level, schematic design package that helps us determine where the building should go on a proposed site, what the overall massing will look like, how big of a footprint the building will occupy, and how the floor plan will function. If needed, we will also engage with a contractor for initial feedback on pricing and schedule.
Construction Document Phase
Once the study is complete and the client is satisfied, we proceed with the Construction Document Phase. This phase turns our research into a working set of construction drawings for the build phase. We draw out the building details such as the structural requirements, wall sections, window and door styles and perform the final code review.
Construction Administration Phase
Once the construction documents are complete, we move into the construction administration phase, where we work with a contractor to coordinate the project. The construction administration phase can be included in the base contract or performed as needed per the owners request.
