Architectural plans

Richard Avelar & Associates offers a variety of in-house architectural design services including reviewing, administering and facilitating key aspects of new and existing building construction. Our evaluation and assessment of design and construction documents, existing building conditions, bids and contracts provides the necessary oversight to minimize adverse risk to our clients, the design and construction professionals involved, and the project overall.

Schematic and Design Development

During the initial stage of a design project, RA&A will meet with the owner to understand the project goals and requirements. Our team can then conduct the appropriate research and produce schematic design documents outlining the concept of the design. These include drawings, an outline of specifications and other documents that illustrate the scale and relationship of the project’s components. Once approved by the owner, the project can move forward to the design development phase.

During design development, RA&A will produce design documents with more detail. We’ll refine and develop various aspects to include additional details for the architectural, structural, mechanical and electrical systems, as well as materials and other elements needed for the project. Once approved by the owner, the project can move on to developing construction documents.
