We can tailor our services to fit the individual needs of our client based on the project scope. We work together to MAKE YOUR PROJECT A SUCCESS.
Design: There are many steps in the design process.
- We meet with you to develop the scope of the project evaluating any site or budget constraints.
- We perform preliminary code research and discuss any issues that might impact the design and/or budget.
- We further discuss design options for space planning and begin developing floor plans.
- Once the floor plans are developed we begin to refine the plans and work on details along with finishes.
- Preliminary budgets can be developed along the way.
Construction Documents: Once you approve the design, we work to transform the design into a detailed set of plans used for permitting and construction. The contractor will establish actual construction cost.
Construction Administration: The contractor will physically build your project, however, we can assist you with making sure the project is built according to plans and keeping you informed. We can answer questions that arise during construction, review submittals, and perform construction site observation visits with reports. The contractor is soley responsible for construction methods, techniques, schedules, and procedures.
