Once the Envisioning process is completed, the architectural design phase of your project can begin. The importance of the proper design for your dental practice cannot be overstated. Your office design, if developed correctly, will
- Increase the productivity and efficiency of your practice
- Enhance the patient experience
- Create an environment you and your staff enjoy working in
- Reflect your personality and work well with the way you practice dentistry
- Let patients know you can be trusted
Regardless of the architectural style you prefer, your office must tell your patients—first and foremost—that they can trust you, that you are a capable practitioner that can take care of their needs.
The Architecture phase of your project includes several steps and has several deliverables:
Space Plans: napkin sketches, if you will, showing a basic floor plan (or site plan) for your practice
Schematic Design plans: preliminary plans that further develop the space plan you like best
Design-Development plans: further details are layered on the schematic plans as the design takes shape
Interior Design: (see next section)
Construction Documents: final plans used for bidding and the physical construction of your office
Building Systems Engineering: mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems design
Our architectural design team—trained and versed in designing all types and sizes of dental offices—will help turn your vision for your office into a functional, aesthetically-pleasing architectural plan set ready for bidding and construction.
