The Design Partnership design process evolves from the client's program and site, moving through the following phases:


•Programming & Planning  (PP)




•Schematic Design  (SD)


•Design Development (DD)


•Construction Documents (CDs)


•Construction Observation (CO)


Ideally the first step in beginning a project is a site visit.  While not always required, it can be beneficial to the final design.  The inital visit ensures the design will incorporate all of the site's features, including:




•Sunshine - for both natural lighting and heating.


•Wind - for both natural cooling and for blocking undesirable gusts and chills.


•Shading - designed using the existing trees, positioning of the home, and with roof overhangs.
