We leverage technology to layer in detail at every stage of the design process. Our clients experience early-stage opportunities to participate, review and get to know their product way ahead of the “final reveal”. This provides many decision-making opportunities that excel the design forward at an early stage.

I’ve been known to take my work home with me and rarely give up to relaxation. If I’m not behind a desk or hammer, I’m probably in the woods or chasing around my three kids.

EXISTING CONDITIONS/ BUILDING REVIEW
Onsite site review to document the existing architectural conditions in order to prepare a working background to begin conceptual or schematic design.
CONCEPTUAL DESIGN/ SCHEMATIC DESIGN
Early phase design planning to articulate the outline of function and form. This includes preliminary site planning, initial program layouts, and conceptual elevations to identify the relationships between program entities. Often includes delivery of floor plans, elevations, and 3D renderings to communicate design intent for early project estimates.
SPACE PLANNING/ PROGRAMMING
In depth analysis and design of programming needs specific to a project location. This phase explores programming using document templates and communicates feasibility through floorplan iterations.
DESIGN DEVELOPMENT/ ENGINEERING COORDINATION
Clear and coordinated description of all aspects of the project scope of work. This includes architectural and all services coordinated under the selected project delivery method. The design development deliverable may include plans, elevations, and 3D renderings, providing a basis of design for the preparation of construction documents.
Preparing all necessary documents to apply and submit for a building permit. Depending on the project type, this may also include separate submittals for planning and zoning review, local health review, and state or local licensing.
CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS AND SPECIFICATIONS
Certified plans that define roles, responsibilities, and scope of work under the construction contract.
Oversight of construction through a series of administrative tasks to ensure the timely execution and maintain the design intent.
