Architectural services encompass a wide range of activities involved in the design and construction of buildings and structures. These services are provided by our in-house licensed architect.
The scope of architectural services can vary depending on the specific project and our client's requirements, but some common components include:
Initial Consultation: ADM’s architect meets with the client to discuss the project's goals, budget, and any specific requirements or preferences.
Site Analysis: ADM’s architect evaluates the site where the building will be constructed, considering factors such as topography, climate, zoning regulations, and any potential constraints or opportunities.
Design Concept Development: ADM’s architect creates preliminary design concepts and sketches that explore different ideas and spatial arrangements to meet our client's needs and aesthetic preferences.
Construction Drawings: Detailed and precise drawings are produced, including plans, elevations, sections, and details, necessary for obtaining permits and guiding construction.
Permitting Assistance: ADM’s architect helps with the process of obtaining necessary permits and approvals from local authorities to start construction.
Material Selection: ADM’s architect advises on suitable materials and finishes that align with the project's design, budget, and sustainability objectives.
Contractor Selection: In some cases, our architect may assist our client in selecting a qualified contractor for the construction phase.
Construction Administration: During construction, our architect will provide site visits and inspections to ensure the project is being carried out according to the design intent and specifications.
Project Management: We offer project management services, coordinating various stakeholders and ensuring that the project stays on schedule and within budget.
Sustainable Design: ADM’s architect may incorporate sustainable design principles to enhance energy efficiency and minimize the environmental impact of the building.
It's important to note that the extent of services provided by architects can vary depending on the specific contract between the architect and the client. Additionally, some projects may require specialized services beyond the scope of traditional architectural services, such as structural engineering or landscape design, which might involve collaboration with other professionals.
