We understand an architect’s design intent and support them with Architecture design services as the design evolves through the following inputs –
The inputs are converted into 3D models and 2D drawings.
Our Architecture Design services include the development of Detailed Plans, Elevations, and Sections across the following stages –
Concept Design is the first phase of design. The proposed system is represented by solid models or drawings at this stage. The representation is based on integrated concepts and ideas to depict how the system behaves and appears. We can correlate this stage to the LOD 100 Revit model.
At Pinnacle, we present multiple design alternatives (e.g., 3 facade options or 2 bathroom options) in a single model through the Design Option feature in Revit during concept design. The number of design options that architects can generate is unlimited.
This ability to generate multiple design options in a single model expedites the entire architectural design process.
The schematic design stage can be considered as an initial design stage in the architectural design process. The general scope, including the scale and relationship between various components, is defined in this stage. This stage can be correlated with the LOD 200 Revit Model.
LOD 200 models comprise generic components. These are characterized by their width, enabling quick generation of Quantity take-offs.
This architectural design stage adds more detail to the schematic design. In addition, clients can obtain drafted to scale drawings to illustrate the project’s appearance after construction. This stage corresponds to the LOD 300 Revit model.
LOD 300 models contain fully defined assemblies. These models can be used to analyze specific systems viz — energy analysis.
The Construction Documentation stage of the Architecture design service includes the creation of drawings and specifications which specify the detailed requirements to facilitate construction. This stage corresponds to the LOD 400 Revit model.
LOD 400 models accurately depict size, location, shape, quantity, and orientation. It also contains fabrication, assembly, and detailing information.
At this stage, we generate –
