For a project to be successful it must achieve 3 goals:

  • It satisfies the client’s needs,
  • It is within the client’s budget,
  • It results in something beautiful.

Unfortunately, we’ve found that the traditional path of project delivery – Design/Bid/Build or Design/Build – typically only achieves one or two of these goals.  In order to achieve all three, we believe it’s critical to build a team from the start that is dedicated to working together.

Our PROJECT TEAM APPROACH was created for this specific purpose and succeeds by realizing the following:

TIME SAVED

through Better Coordination and Communication

MONEY SAVED

through Fewer Changes during Construction

A TRUSTED RELATIONSHIP

between the Client, Builder and Architect

A HAPPY HOMEOWNER

and a Beautiful Finished Project

Here’s how it works:

START-UP

It’s important to start off right – we help you organize your thoughts about the project and recommend a selection of skilled builders to choose the best fit for the team.

PREPARATION

Time to lay the ground work – we research zoning issues, create base drawings and, together, the project team will balance the scope of work with your budget.

DEVELOPMENT

As we explore the various design options for your project, the builder provides detailed pricing feedback to keep you in touch with the potential cost impacts of your decisions.

DOCUMENTATION

With the design approved, we start on the creation of a detailed set of construction drawings while the builder, and their trades, provide feedback on the required systems.

ADMINISTRATION

With the drawings complete, the builder provides their final pricing as we assist in the process of acquiring all necessary construction permits, variances, or special approvals.

CONSTRUCTION

We collaborate with the builder throughout construction to create solutions for the inevitable issues that arise and, together, we bring your project to life.

Are you a builder looking for a better way to achieve your client’s goals?
