The 4 Phases of Your Architectural Project in Our Hands
August 29, 2019Where do you start an architectural project? Clients frequently ask this question when they want to plan a home, office or building. Our experts at echeverrimontes architects understand that professional assessment in project structuring and planning is necessary to analyze and identify the determining variables of a structure and delineate the objectives of a project.
The planning of an architectural project includes two fundamental concepts: assessment of variables, and systematic outlining of technical, financial, and legal aspects. To fulfill these concepts, our firm performs an integral analysis of the context of the project and predicts its success according to our clients' expectations. Later on, we design a process outline and a project phase to ensure optimal results and creative problem-solving throughout all stages.
At echeverrimontes, we meet the highest standards for quality and sustainability in all our architectural projects. In this blog post, we'll be sharing our knowledge about the phases of an architectural project, so as to provide you with useful information in case you want to start your own.
Stages of an Architectural ProjectAt echeverrimontes architects, our team members create a collaborative atmosphere where dynamic and creative interaction are favored. Our architects are committed to fulfilling clients' expectations by delivering integral designs.

As professionals in each area of architecture, we know that it is necessary to foster analysis and creative evaluation of all possible solutions while planning a project and maximizing its chance for success. These are the stages of an architectural project:
1. Pre-Design: Project Analysis and Planning
At echeverrimontes architects, we think that pre-design is essential for a successful architectural project since this is where the determining variables are studied and discussed by the team based on the client's expectations. This phase includes design and experimentation with several alternatives to find the ones that best suit the project.
We are committed professionals who put their creative power to the service of your project. In this phase is where clear objectives for the project's materialization are proposed.
Conceptual planning of a project is fundamental to clearly establish objectives. Once these have been formulated, brainstorming innovative ideas will create a space of design to evaluate the potential of the project and make conscious decisions in agreement with all the variables.
2. Feasibility StudyOnce the project has been formulated, it's time to consciously analyze all technical, financial, and legal matters involved in order to make accurate choices to fit any scenario of feasibility. This stage of the project involves the creation of different scenarios and the formulation of a joint analysis to fulfill all variables involved according to the clients' expectations.
3. Project Design (Schematic Design)Project design starts with a problem statement and an objective analysis of variables. The creative solution to the project is structured as research advances and new technical, architectural, financial, and legal ideas and options are considered.
Our team of expert architects has the ability to implement state-of-the-art technology such as BIM (Building Information Modelling) software. This is the type of computer-generated design that uses software like Rhino and Grasshopper with programmatic management of data. It allows us to have an objective analysis of the objectives to ensure the success of the project and promote environmental preservation.
Through computer design, echeverrimontes architects generate clearly formulated designs and experiments with innovative solutions that always satisfy our clients.
4. Design DevelopmentOnce the project's objectives have been defined and the conditions for feasibility have been ensured, the project is ready to be implemented and materialized. The experts of echeverrimontes architects are in charge not only of the design process but also the supervision of the project, to make sure that the clients' expectations and objective goals are met at every step of the process.
Our professional objective commits us to our projects from the initial stages to their final definition and materialization. Our teamwork perspective pushes us to make multidisciplinary workgroups to cover a holistic structuring of the project.
