Our Process

  • Phase 1
  • Phase 2
  • Phase 3
  • Phase 4
  • Phase 5
  • Phase 6


  • Meet with key project individuals
  • Familiarize ourselves with existing reports, zoning and code constraints
  • From this information, we then talk further with the Client, Agencies, and Community (if deemed appropriate) to finalize the scope of work, the site and building program
    • We use Take-Part Workshops as a methodology for building group consensus for large projects


  • After the program is firmly established, we develop two or three schematic designs
  • We hold discussions with individual Clients, or staff and relevant decision makers to determine the preferred scheme
  • We have the capability to represent schematic ideas with drawings, diagrams, or computer aid methods or models, if desired
  • We establish the First Estimate of Probable Cost at the schematic design phase


  • Design development takes place when the Client approves the schematic design
  • We produce hard-line drawings to describe the size and character of the project
  • We review a copy of the Design review submittal package with the Client
  • We represent the Client through the Design Review process, sometimes involving neighborhood or community meetings to explain the project and answer questions as required


  • The major portion of our work begins after we receive design review approval
  • We produce detailed construction drawings and coordinate with consultants
  • When work is 50% completed, we coordinate w/ Client’s GC to establish a cost estimate for any value engineering that may be needed, addressing any budget concerns
  • Also at the 50% stage, there is a client/staff review of the construction documents


  • We continue to assist the Client in the bid process
  • Respond to questions, assisting the Client in administering the bid
  • Once the bid is awarded, we hold a meeting with the Client, the Contractor, and our Team to agree on processes and goals for the construction phase


(limited to full service available, depending upon scope and size project)
  • During the construction phase, we can answer requests for information, administer submittals, meet with the Client and the Contractor on a regularly established basis
  • We would review change order requests and make payment recommendations to the Client
  • We will remain very detail-oriented during the construction phase, assuring that each project stays true to the design vision and remains cost-conscience, creating the optimal result for each job
  • Provide & coordinate with General Contractor (GC) for final inspection/close-out services, if necessary
