Project Consulting & Planning
Production Builder Design
We specialize in production builder design, creating homes that are both affordable and efficient without sacrificing quality or style. Our team of experienced designers and engineers work closely with clients to develop models that are tailored to their specific needs and preferences, and are value engineered.
This type of design is geared towards large-scale production and efficiency. It involves designing and constructing homes that can be replicated quickly and easily, often using a limited number of floor plans with a multitude of pre-designed optional configurations. Designs are created with the goal of minimizing costs and maximizing efficiency, while still providing homebuyers with a broad range of options and personalization opportunities that meet the needs and wants of the marketplace.
Our proprietary software and in-house workflow management allows us to offer a variety of home options that require no additional time to process orders into a permit set of lot-specific plans. We are committed to providing our clients with the highest level of service and quality, and we take pride in creating homes that are both beautiful and affordable.
Our Design Process
For each project, regardless of scale, AgeWave Solutions envisions the design process as an open dialog between our clients and the architect, creating a collaborative experience where possibilities are explored, and solutions are crystallized. Our goal, through active listening and understanding, is to produce a unique design for each client.
Our design process involves the following phases:
During the programming phase, we work closely with you to gather information about the project’s purpose, scope, and intended use. This involves conducting a discovery interview to understand the functional requirements, spatial needs, technological considerations, and any unique constraints of the project. The goal is to create a detailed and accurate program that outlines the project’s objectives and defines the key features and spaces that need to be included in the final design.
Your expectations for locating your building on the site are evaluated for compatibility with respect to local ordinances, zoning limitations, setbacks, landscaping, natural topography, sun studies, views from approach and from the building. Opportunities that arise from this discussion and research are explored to develop the strategy for the siting of the building and it’s supporting spaces.
In this initial design phase, based on information gathered during programming and site analysis phases, and close collaboration with the client, producing a conceptual design will define the overall arrangement of spaces and definition of the project. Our use of renderings and animation further help you understand the architect’s design and vision.
Listening to your comments, we further develop the schematic design concepts. The plans and elevation are refined, providing more clarity and detail. Product and material selection are discussed, and preliminary engineering begins on your project.
Once the design is established, the production of the technical documents commences to describe the project in drawings, details, and specifications, outlining material, components, and systems suitable for permitting and construction of your project by the contractor.
When you engage AgeWave throughout the construction phase, you can be assured that the final delivery of the project is as smooth a transition as possible. We can provide construction administration services for:
- Periodically observe construction progress, quality and advise the client.
- Responding to Contractor’s questions: Request for Information (RFI).
- Review scope and proposed cost changes requested by the you, or the Contractor.
- Review and advise you on Contractor material, product, or system substitutions.
- Revise permit documents as required for clarification, or changes.
