Frequently Asked Questions About Work Design
What Are the Stages of Design Prior to Construction?
You must complete several phases of design before you can move forward with construction work. Work design stages should be completed in this order.
1. Pre-Design and Feasibility Analysis
First, it’s essential to determine whether a building project is possible, which involves doing the necessary research before ordering supplies for a project and building. Finishing a zone analysis is a crucial part of the pre-design process. This phase will confirm what type of structures you can build in a location.
The pre-design phase also includes setting a spending budget and deciding the project’s scope.
2. Schematic Design Phase
The schematic design phase involves investigating the building codes of an area, performing site analysis and establishing the structure’s size and shape. Designers create a detailed outline of what a building will look like and how much space is in each room or zone. The property owner can then approve the drawings.
3. Design Development
The design and development stage is where property owners and designers decide on materials for the project. Review the types of doors, windows, floors, sinks and fixtures you want throughout a space. You can update the drawings to reflect your choices. You’ll also confirm the blueprints for electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems.
4. Construction Documents Phase
A designer will gather all finalized drawings for review by officials in your area. The drawings provided should outline the following:
- Heating and air conditioning systems
- Ventilation systems
- Gas hookups
- Electrical systems
- Plumbing networks
5. Bidding Phase
Bidding describes the process of selecting a contractor to see the project through. Once you find your contractor, the party will sign legal contracts.
6. Construction Observation Phase
A designer follows up with the project to ensure everything is going to plan. The construction observation phase is the final stage in the pre-construction process and is helpful for making sure builders are following the architectural designs as closely as possible through completion.
What’s the Difference Between Work Design and Design-Build Services?
Work design involves mapping out the tasks and responsibilities for completing a job. Think of work design services as creating accurate descriptions for the group carrying out the construction project. Contractors will decide whether they possess the skills, abilities and equipment needed to fulfill the duties described.
Design-build services describe situations where one group or business completes the project design and construction phases. This structure is convenient, as there is a smooth transition between creating architectural drawings and making the final building come to life.
How Do I Choose the Right Designer for My Construction Needs?
Select a designer who understands your vision and has a history of working in your location. You’ll want to find impressive example projects the designer has completed to see whether your idea aligns with their experience level and past work.
Another essential factor to consider is how well a designer will communicate throughout the design process. You should know where your projects are at all times, so rely on professionals willing to keep you in the loop for peace of mind. The designer you choose for your construction needs should be well-reviewed, too.
