The process we follow is a highly creative and exciting one providing for us a means of understanding the project, and a framework to make our ideas real. Our process is designed to reach objectives in order of priority so that the highest priority items and large design decisions are arrived at first and details are designed and developed as needed.
Schematic Design focuses on spatial relationships, scale, and form. It starts to give shape to your ideas and produces something we can start to get really excited about. We’ll look at buildings and ideas you love, talk about what it is you love about them, and examine how to best incorporate these into your project.
With an approved schematic, scope, and budget we produce detailed design and permit drawings. We review for compliance with codes and applicable regulations. We review components, materials, and systems. We can have your contractor review to discuss potential changes for cost savings and constructibility.
During construction, I review to see that work has been performed in accordance with the contract documents. I will be available on-call to answer questions and provide additional detail as needed. I attend on site, provide information, issue details, review shop drawings, discuss strategies, and when necessary propose or review changes.
