Process Outline

As a full service firm, we are engaged in the architectural process from the very beginning to the very end. Starting with conversation, we seek client input throughout project development. As problem solvers, we overcome constraints such as site and budget, to develop designs that exceed expectations. As collegial professionals, we work with associated professionals through the completion of the project, to ensure design integrity and client satisfaction.

We begin by listening. Next we study the site, to position the project optimally upon the property. Once site selection is determined, we produce a variety of design alternatives based on client input as to lifestyle, needs and constraints.

We produce final plans according to client specifications and reactions to preliminary designs. Permits may now be drawn and construction bids solicited. At client request, we attend hearings and provide drawings necessary to obtain construction bids.

We work with clients as needed to procure a builder, finalize construction costs and provide schematic documentation necessary for construction.

We regularly visit the site, to ensure that design specifications are followed. We meet with both client and builder regularly. If desired, we work with clients and/or decorators for selection of final finishes. At project completion, we oversee a punch list, to ensure completion of all details.
