Design Process

Generally, their are three steps to our design process. This is what you can expect for our residential or commercial design process from Myles Nelson McKenzie Design.

Design Process

Residential Design Process-Client Meeting

Reviewing proposed project design concept plan.

1) Project Proposal & Development

Phase one includes an initial meeting with the client and or the project Builder at said property. At that time, our clients usually outline their desires for the project design. We will offer possible design suggestions. Review and examine all restrictions inherent to the project lot with the local City and or County Planning & Building Departments.

2) Concept & Design Development

We will provide a preliminary design concept plan based upon our discussion together of the project with the client or builder. The floor plans will be generated along with a site plan and exterior relevant elevations. The approximate room sizes and  square footage will be presented. Upon reviewing the concept design plan, we further develop the design develop phase. Upon the client’s final approval of this phase, we move forward to the project construction documents.

3) Construction Documents

At this point, the design development phase is completed. Although, their maybe a few minor changes by the owner or builder may yet make during the construction documents phase. But it’s time to start the construction documents. Any required engineering will start at this point as well. The completed plans will include the project notes, dimensions, details, and sections for the project plans.

As the design phase and the development of construction plan process is now completed! 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.
