We provide comprehensive architectural and design services, meticulously tailored to suit the unique scale, requirements, and preferences of your project. Our structured design process comprises the following key stages:

  1. 1 Schematic Design

    During this phase, we transform the insights gathered from our initial consultation and review into preliminary design concepts. Schematic design drawings are generated, offering a clear overview of layout, basic dimensions, and initial furniture placement. Depending on your project, we may explore multiple design options at this stage.

  2. 2 Design Development

    Building on the selected design direction and client feedback, we refine the design further. This pivotal stage encompasses the development of both interior and exterior elevations, offering the flexibility to craft 2D and 3D models and sketches to comprehensively investigate diverse design elements. During this phase, we delve into the intricacies of interior design and into the tactile aspects of the project. This includes the exciting process of material sourcing and sampling, allowing us to bring the project’s interior to life with carefully selected materials and textures.

  3. 3 Permit Drawings

    Once the final design is established, we create the necessary drawings for obtaining permits. Permit requirements and processing timelines are project and location-specific, and we adeptly manage the coordination with essential consultants, including structural engineers, mechanical specialists, and arborists, throughout this phase. Our commitment is to facilitate a smooth and efficient journey through this regulatory process, ensuring that your project progresses seamlessly and without delays.

  4. 4 Construction Drawings

    In parallel with the permit submission, we produce a comprehensive set of construction drawings and schedules. These encompass a wide spectrum of crucial details, including interior elevations, precision millwork specifications, interior and exterior details, material selections, electrical layouts, and more. These finalized drawings serve as the contract documents for tender and construction purposes.

  5. 5 Tender

    If needed, we facilitate the submission of our meticulously crafted construction drawings and schedules to prospective contractors, inviting them to provide pricing quotes and proposals. Our collaborative approach extends to assisting our clients in identifying the most suitable contractor for their specific project needs, ensuring a harmonious match between the project and the contracting expertise required.

  6. 6 Contract Administration

    This pivotal phase involves continuous engagement in the construction process to ensure its alignment with the approved construction documents. We conduct multiple site visits during construction, offering support, addressing inquiries, and resolving any on-site challenges that may arise. Our collaborative approach fosters a seamless working relationship with both the contractor and our clients, facilitating a smooth and efficient construction process. This stage is instrumental in ensuring the project’s successful realization.

  7. 7 Post Construction

    Our commitment extends beyond the construction phase. We assist in finalizing the project, including activities such as conducting the final inspection, securing occupancy permits, assessing project deficiencies, and ensuring your complete satisfaction with the finished project.

    Our comprehensive approach ensures that every aspect of your project, from initial ideation to post-construction, receives the utmost attention and expertise, resulting in a successful and gratifying architectural experience.
