  • Consultation & Proposal
  • The Charette
  • Design Development
  • Construction Administration

We start with a consultation to discuss your needs, look at your site or building and assess the scope of the project. By establishing and nurturing the collective communication of ideas, it will ensure a successful design process. From that point we will put together a fee proposal for the scope of the project for your consideration. That often begins with a Letter Agreement for a stipulated sum.

Our team of architects will meet in the studio and charette your project to arrive at several design solutions which are then refined and presented to the client. Sustainable design is discussed and encouraged throughout the process as we ultimately work towards a zero impact building. This process can exhausting but an unbelievably productive way to establish a shared vision for your project.

The most critical step. We accelerate ideas, suggestions, and alternatives accepted during the Schematic Design phase with the goal of establishing a preliminary construction costs. In order to create and maintaining the project, we guide that vision through the design process as we address challenges, take advantage of opportunities and meet the needs of the project program.

This is when we make sure all of the earlier decisions are documented properly and by creating a set of drawings that clearly guide the construction process. Then followed by the most challenging step:  Building it. Today’s construction environment is much more demanding on your architect than in prior decades. It is important that our Architectural Team ensures project management continuity in order to deal with the myriad of challenges of today’s construction arena.
