Owner, Architect, and General Contractor Collaboration

2m 28s

Russell Buchanan of Buchanan Architecture walks us through the schematic design phase of his residential project in Crested Butte, CO.  He discusses the importance of capitalizing on views and solar orientation, and how they influenced the building layout. He also sketches out a bubble diagram to illustrate the spatial and functional relationships as well as the structural grid.

We, as the architect, prepare all of those documents and when we are done and it's been approved by the owner, then we distribute those to the general contractor. The general contractor, then, has the responsibility of distributing drawings and soliciting bids from said contractors. He collects those bids, adds his fee and that is the cost of construction or the cost of the work.
