asquared studios is traditionally engaged in a full service arrangement to design and manage a project from conception through to construction completion. To those who have never participated in the architectural process, the journey can seem complicated and time consuming; So, we like to approach the journey by identifying the distinct phases required to achieve a successful outcome. We have taken our professional expertise and distilled our services into 3 general categories or phases of work.
Pre-Design • Schematic Design
The Pre-Design phase is centered around the project program (or your wish list) and overall project objectives.
Design Development • Construction Documentation
Design Development expands upon the approved schematic design, refining and cultivating creative solutions to the project specific goals and moving into greater architectural detail, materials, and building systems.
Bidding • Construction Contract Administration
During the bidding and negotiation phase we will assist you in creating invitations to bid, instructions to bidders, and in evaluating and understanding the bids received.
