Thus if you are planning to do a project you have to start meeting with the Architect at least three months prior to the time that you want to start construction.
These key questions upon starting a project dictates the process: 1) How big or small is the project? 2) What is the budget for the project? and 3) How long it will take to execute the project? The answer to all is “It depends”. However a generalization of the process involved is as follows:
Design of project with client: 2-3 weeks (depending upon size of the project)
Construction Documents: 4-6 weeks (depending on the size of the project)
Bid Process: 2 weeks
