Successful design is the result of combining various distinct concepts into a well-considered and properly executed unity
The journey we take to the final design isn’t necessarily linear, even though the processes mentioned below show a linear path.
It is an iterative process that results in a product; the product is not known from the start. The end outcome of taking the design process through to its logical conclusion is the final product.
The fact that we jointly construct custom design based on your unique scenario and requirements is what makes it so interesting and memorable.
You’ll have a well-designed structure and the shared experience of designing it at the conclusion of the process.
Site analysis, programming, existing conditions, budgeting, code review.
Basic design concept generation
Refinement of the selected design concept from phase 2
Detailed drawings, schedules and specs
Aid in contract award / negotiation with GC
Oversee construction + administration of the contract.
The phases are ordered sequentially and build on the work completed and agreed to in the previous phase. We begin with the broad and work our way down to the specific. There are numerous decisions to be made along the way, and this gradation organizes them into manageable chunks.

How it Works
Site visit to evaluate current structure or proposed work
Explain the process and the proposed work to be done
If other professionals are recommended we can refer you to them
Provide a letter or drawings for the repairs and define scope of work
Construction observations to ensure integrity throughout the project
With decades of A&E experience, we use engineering analysis of structures and our judgment to create solutions to unique problems.
Projects vary widely in scope. We usually need to evaluate the current structure to be able to evaluate the project scope. We meet on-site to inspect an issue and discuss possible solutions or designs to address them. Design is an iterative process, so we continue dialogue with our clients throughout the process as we refine our preliminary design ideas into a final working solution.
