DESIGN PROCESS

Some projects have “Must-Have” priorities others are more flexible where Owners will rely more frequently on our ideas and expertise. Yes, experience and talent are important qualifications for a good designer but we also believe Design is a process where realizing an Owner’s vision starts with understanding the “Purpose” of the project.

Primary Purpose of a Project Could Be One or More of the Below:

  • A Necessary Function to be Accommodated
  • Accommodating a Lifestyle
  • A Decorative Makeover
  • Investing to Add Value to a Property
  • A Safety Requirement
  • Or a Typical Electrical, Mechanical, Plumbing Requirement

PHASE ONE: SETTING THE PURPOSE

Our Design Process Starts with understanding the “Purpose”
We listen, ask, consolidate the information, collaborate and deliver
The Outcome of this process is typically:
• A Space Plan
• A Preliminary Budget and Schedule

PHASE TWO: FINALIZING THE SCHEMATIC DESIGN

Once the preliminary ideas (The Purpose) have been set, we continue to further develop the design by communicating with you by providing floor plans, initial construction details, sketches and renderings to identify additional details regarding the desired final product.

The outcome of this process is typically a finalized Schematic Design Set of plans and a preliminary budget and schedule

PHASE THREE

Producing the Permit/Construction Plan Sets:
If the project requires detailed specifications, detailing and a construction permit, a Permit/Construction set of detailed drawings and specifications would be put under production to meet the authorities’ requirements.
This would be the most detailed thus the proper plans set that could be priced for a final fixed-price contract.
Deliverables are a Construction Plan Sets, Final Price Proposals and a Schedule

Construction

Survey

A thorough survey of project related spaces is critical to finalizing the design and construction plans. Our expert staff will diligently survey your property to identify critical items that will influence the efficiency of the design. This will also assist us in identifying any potential issues, which may affect the design, and assist us with proposing necessary design changes or financial contingencies, which should be included in the project budget.

Project Management Tools

Our client’s piece of mind is of paramount importance. Therefore, we strive to provide our clients with as much information as is possible concerning the status and progress of the project.

We provide easy to read project management tools for Owner’s use updated on weekly bases outlining the status of the budget and the schedule.

At the conclusion of the project, we will provide a binder for the client with the Certificate of Occupancy, Warranty Information, Information on the Installed Products and As-Built Plans (when requested) of the final product.
