At the pre-design phase, the Architect collects legal and site information, and develops a preliminary building program.
At the design phase, the Architect develops the information from pre-design into its visual interpretation. The Architect and Client then work to develop the formal design, composed of plans and exterior architecture.
The construction document phase is where the Architect develops detailed documents and specifications that communicate the approved design. The proposed project is detailed according to professional architectural standards and within the codes of the local permitting institution.
Construction administration is where the Architect performs site observation, communicating thoughts to client and contractor(s). Site meetings and appropriate documentation are coordinated, allowing all parties to stay informed and monitor construction according to approved plans.

A master plan is a dynamic long-term planning document that provides a conceptual layout to guide future growth and development. Master planning is about making the connection between buildings, social settings, and their surrounding environments. A master plan includes analysis, recommendations, and proposals for a site’s population, economy, housing, transportation, community facilities, and land use. It is based on public input, surveys, planning initiatives, existing development, physical characteristics, and social and economic conditions.
Sustainable design seeks to reduce negative impacts on the environment, and the health and comfort of building occupants, thereby improving building performance. The basic objectives of sustainability are to reduce consumption of non-renewable resources, minimize waste, and create healthy, productive environments.
