SCOPE OF ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN
With the new revolutionary changes due to AutoCAD software, all building projects are using itfor its architectural designing.However any 3d visualization is base work for any architectural drawings. Visualization is the first step before any drawings are created.
Architectural designing process begins when owner approaches architectural firm with a concept.And its primary responsibility of architect to understand owners thought process and frame his design matching all local,state and federal guidelines.On completion of architectural drawing,architect submits set of drawings to local building departments for approval so that final process of construction can be initiated accordingly.Also he makes sure that construction works according to specified guidelines in architectural drawings.
Architectural designing have 5 major steps:-
Schematic Design–In this phase it’s very crucial for architects to develop clear precise concept so that client can understand it easily.Also an architect researches any current problem prevalent and future upcoming problems. Architects works closely with clients to understand programme objectives, building specific needs, projects goal, design expectation, construction cost, budget with site requirements.
Its very clear that client expects 3d work from architects at this early stage.However architects usually provide concept sketches with the help of hand or through cad. Such low details 3d perspective rendering can easily be performed by any qualified efficient architects for satisfying their clients so as to give visual representation. Main documentations which are performed in this phase are:-
This after completion of such documentation part, it becomes main responsibility of architects to seek approval from clients after satisfying them clearly. So that next step of design process can begin.In many cases if clients want 3d services on projects in SD Phase then it’s their mutual decision to decide about future cost of 3d changes or level of details to be provided.
Other remaining steps are
DESIGN DEVELOPMENT – It’s all about designing set of architectural drawings like floor plan, roof plan, building sections, exterior elevation, reflected ceiling plans, wall sections and details.
CONSTRUCTION DRAWING-This phase is all about construction documentation part. It must include all information related to city, country and federal guidelines.
BIDDING AND NEGOTIATION– In this phase, work of architects are almost over. Constructers are invited to bid on a project.And the best one gets selected.
CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION – Being the last phase, its all about submitting construction drawings to building department and once project is fully developed ,last changes can occur in the designs .
