every project starts with an idea, a need, an opportunity, or a problem to be solved. no matter which it is, our goal is to learn and understand the dynamics driving each and every project.
every project is unique. every successful project's design is founded upon a solid foundation of study and analysis to ensure the final design balances all of your requirements.
reuse and adaptation of existing buildings requires accurate building surveying and documentation of existing conditions. we conduct careful and thorough visual reviews of existing facilities to understand constraints that will need to be considered for your project. existing conditions are photographed, measured, and documented for use during the forthcoming design phases.
every design begins with a concept -or many concepts. we begin the design process by taking all of our previous predesign steps and conceptualize various ideas to present to you. With your chosen concept we continue on to the next design phase...
a design concept needs to be further developed to incorporate building components -structural and other engineering system accommodations, code compliance, refined incorporation of the project programming , and further development of the architectural design.
schematic designs are further refined and developed to incorporate more information on engineered systems and structures; building finishes are preplanned; fixtures, furnishings and equipment are identified and all aspects of the building is coordinated.
the developed design is further documented for regulatory approval, and for use by contractors for procurement bidding, and construction.
the construction drawings and speciation are often used to procure competitive bids from contractors, vendors, and material suppliers. owner-selected contractors are then engaged and authorized to proceed with construction.
construction of your project commences over several months. we can assist you with specific activities to ensure the construction remains on track with the design intent. when the construction work is complete we can assist you with inspecting the completed work and following up with reviewing any warranty claims you may have.
