Process

HM3 Process:

Design begins with inspiration, an idea, a thought. Then the process begins. At HM3 we develop our architecture in 5 distinct stages. Working as a team with the owner and associated consultants we begin.

Pre-Design

We gather the facts, develop and evaluate the program, your needs and desires. We inspect, analyze the site and develop a feel for the land. We verify codes, conditions, and restrictions, then we begin. Consultants are engaged, concepts gathered and then we get to create!

Schematic Design

The concepts hit the paper here. Working with the topography and the environment, the design takes shape. The program takes form, floor plans elevations are developed and site plans evolve. Form, shape, flow, and function form the site to building plans.

Design Development

The designed, refined, developed and enhanced. Volumes studied and alternatives explored. The team works together with all disciplines, Architecture, Structure, Landscape, Mechanical, Electrical, and Energy. Final designs are completed.

Construction Documents

The technical aspects of the design are concluded and produced. Outside consultants designs are completed. Plans for construction are finalized and produced for submittal to the governing agency. It is all pulled together here.

Construction Administration

Permits are secured and construction can proceed. In-field confirmation of our work is performed. Problems are handled and solutions determined and processed.

Architect/Builder and Architect/Owner communication assures the quality result desired.

HM3 Architecture acts as the lead team. Our integrated talents are combined and choreographed throughout the five stages of our work. It is your dream, our vision, and skills, all encompassed in bringing it to life.
