Process: Envisioning, Designing & Creating Places

Phase 1

Master Planning

FROM SITE EVALUATION TO COLLABORATIVE WORKSHOPS

Strategy meets site analysis during this initial project phase. We conduct a comprehensive site evaluation to inform successive, interactive workshops that gather designers, architects, consultants, and stakeholders. Together, we explore and refine the character, quality, and building strategy to match our clients’ goals. The process is productive and deeply collaborative.

Phase 2

Architectural Design

FROM CONCEPT DESIGN TO CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS

Ideas begin to take shape in rendered site plans, land use, and massing models. We establish the building layout and develop the architectural character and program. Key building elements and urban spaces come to life in plan and elevation, while the marketing strategy moves forward with renderings, illustrations, and digital movies.

Phase 3

Implementations

FROM BIDDING TO CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION

We create a complete package of construction documents to secure all necessary permits. Our team also manages the bidding process, issuing drawing sets and Bills of Quantities, and we work with you to choose the right contractor for the project. Once work begins, OBMI construction management experts conduct site visits, issue instructions and updates, and ensure the work meets our exacting standards.

CONTINUOUS CLIENT COLLABORATION

Our collaborative, flexible work process engages both our clients and the stakeholders needed to complete a project from beginning to end.

Designing the Luxury Hotel Experience

OBMI Associate & Lead Hospitality Designer, Herick Wolfgang Rodriguez, shares the evolution of luxury hospitality and how as an architect he works with clients to design authentic experiences to impress even the most discerning traveler.

Making it Real
