Professional Architectural Design Services

Rowland+Broughton offers a comprehensive range of residential architectural services, including interior design, to ensure a successful residential construction project. To help you reach your project objectives, we collaborate with reputable partners, suppliers, and service providers.

We also work closely with you to ensure that every step of the process meets your expectations, budget requirements, and schedule.


Our Design Process

Our architectural design process consists of five phases. We use this process to guide you and the architectural design team step-by-step from initial planning to project completion.

We use this same process for all architectural services to streamline and direct all activities toward a single project objective, eliminating the waste of time and money.


Our architectural service starts with you to ensure that we bring your vision to life. During the pre-design phase, we work with you to develop a  detailed description of your ideal project. We will then use this information to create a project brief and program document that you can review and approve.

In addition, we will also review all relevant zoning codes, regulations, and bylaws. We will then conduct a thorough site analysis to gather the information we need for the residential designing phase. 

Schematic Design

With the information we gathered during the design phase, we formulate different preliminary design concepts in the form of a rough sketch to give rise to new ideas. After reviewing these concepts, you can select one that matches the result you have in mind, and amend as needed to fit your lifestyle and needs.

Design Development

Using the initial design drawings, we will create an architectural drawing with the project details, including door and window sizes, wall thicknesses, and construction assemblies. At this stage, we will also get cost estimates from qualified contractors to ensure that we meet your budget requirements.

Construction Documents

Next, we will create the construction documents and gather technical information for the contractor to use during the bidding and construction phases. These construction documents include:

  • Site, floor, and foundation plans
  • Building specifications
  • Electrical plans
  • Ceiling plans
  • Outdoor elevations
  • Engineer’s structural plans

In addition to generating these documents, we will also help you prepare a building permit application and negotiate the construction contract on your behalf.

Construction Administration

We monitor the construction process closely to ensure the complete and accurate execution of our design so it aligns with your expectations. Our design team will also collaborate with the contractor, check for potential issues, and document progress. We communicate with you every step of the way, so you have the same information as we do.
