Our Design Process
Generally, there are three steps to our building design process. The following information is what you can expect for residential or commercial building design process from Myles Nelson McKenzie Design.
1) Project Proposal & Development
Phase one includes an initial meeting with the clients and or the project Builder of the said project property. For today’s environment, our clients can feel safe by communicating thru our live online Zoom meetings arrangements.
Additionally, at that time, our clients usually have outline of a wish list or there desires for the project design. We will review these and discuss these items together. Offer any possible design suggestions.
Once we have had our initial design consultation meeting with our clients, we will review and examine all restrictions inherent to the project property with the local City and or County Planning & Building Departments.
2) Concept Design & Design Development
At this point we will develop a preliminary design concept plan based upon our discussion together with the client or the builder. We will present it to the client or builder for further input. Upon reviewing the concept design plan, we will start to develop the design further in the design develop phase.
Once the design develop plans has been approved, we develop a set of presentation design plans. They will include floor plans along with a site plan and any relevant exterior elevations. Approximate room sizes and square footage will be presented as well.
Upon the client’s final approval of this phase, we move forward to the project construction documents.
3) Construction Documents
It’s now time to start the construction documents!
Clients and or the builder can make minor changes during the construction documents phase.
Normally, at this point we develop construction documents enough so that any required civil, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and structural engineering can also start their process as well.
In our design studio, as we complete the project construction plans, the design phase and the development of construction plan phase is now completed!
The completed construction plans will include the project notes, dimensions, details, and sections for the project construction plans.

It’s time to take the construction plans and all other required documents into the local governing building department for review and to receive your building permit.
