process

The process begins with the initial conversation discussing the client’s needs. This includes considerations for site selection and location, use of the site for a proposed building, or specific request for a renovation/ fit-out for an existing building. The discussion will cover general concepts for the design of the building, probable cost and duration of the construction process for the specific project and the clients budget. From this discussion, an introduction meeting is set to continue the discussion covering the design and construction process including:

 

  • Conceptual design ideas

  • Site planning

  • Building program analysis

  • Preliminary design

  • Interior and exterior materials

  • Township/City zoning and planning considerations

  • Construction costs

  • Client budget considerations

  • Construction documentation

  • Selection of contractors

  • Architectural and engineering fees

 

From this meeting, a proposal for services is generated, and the design process begins and follows through with Schematic Design, Design Development and Construction Documentation.
