Creating Your Design

This phase involves the schematic design and design development work by the design professionals. This can be overwhelming because it is at this point in the project when you will be called upon to make the most decisions. Various layouts will be presented and you will be asked to select the one that you like the best. Alternative types of materials will be presented and you will be asked to select the ones that best fit your needs.

To support you, we facilitate the creation of:

  • A time line with milestone dates so that you can track the project during this phase when it is very difficult to judge how much progress is really being made.
  • Formalized information about your needs, goals, desires, and budget so that the alternatives presented to you are in keeping with the decisions you have already taken.
  • Budgets and controls so that you don't feel the project is operating on a blank check basis.

We will be with you every step of the way to be your sounding board and your guide. You will not be left out on a limb, being asked to make decisions without having all the alternatives and implications presented to you

At the end of the phase you will have a finalized design, construction documents, a budget and you will be ready to begin contracting for the actual construction.
