Wilson Architecture + Design, LLC is a full service architectural company that believes the built environment should support how we live our lives. To do this, our team of experts collaborates with our clients to develop projects that influence and accommodate what they do in their space.
Programming & Pre-Design
Programming begins with our initial consultation, a general discussion of your project goals, and budgetary expectations, and a review of our contract terns and fees.
After we have established and Agreement for Services, we move forward with Schematic Design. It involves a more in-depth discussion of your project goals and requirements.
From this discussion we establish the required functions of the project and estimated square footage, referred to as Programming. Then the architect develops study drawings to illustrated concepts of design, spatial relationships, scale, and form for your review. The architect will also research zoning requirements and jurisdictional restrictions.
Design Development further refines the Schematic Design documents. During this phase, the structural engineer lays out and size the structural framing. Doors and window types and locations are reviewed and established. A supplemental, written description of the project, referred to as outline specifications, is also prepared to supplement the drawings.
Deliverables: Floor plans with overall dimensions, exterior views of each building facade, building sections, outline specifications and door, window and finish schedules.
Once the Design Developments are approved by the owner, the architect will produce drawings in greater detail and revise the Outline Specifications. Construction details and material selections will be provided as required for permitting and construction.

Contractor Selection and Pricing & Contract Negotiation
The Construction Documents will be used to obtain final pricing from the contractor(s) and apply for a building permit. Construction may begin once the owner is satisfied with the pricing, the permit is obtained, and an Owner–Contractor Agreement is signed.
Construction Administration & Observation
Construction Administration services are provided during construction.
The architect will interpret the Contract Documents, answer questions, and develop clarification sketches as required. The architect will also visit the site, review progress, and review the work for compliance with the Contract Documents.
