Concept development / Programming: Through client interviews, site observations, independent
research, and extensive interaction with the owners, operators, and users of facilities, we define the operational and functional
requirements of each individual project. In partnership with the client and the project team, we prioritize project
criteria from the most urgent to the most minute.
Schematic Design: Within the guidelines of performance, budget, and space we prepare
schematic floor plans to suggest possible solutions for each project. The pros and cons of various design solutions
are considered, summary equipment cost estimates are prepared, and architectural and engineering coordination begins.
Design Development: The approved schematic design is reconciled with architectural and
structural elements, code issues, and the details of workstation development. A client-friendly design document is prepared
for presentation and approval. Detailed coordination information is refined and documented for distribution to the project
Construction Documentation and Administration: An idea is only as good as its execution.
We work with the architect and the project team and, using cutting edge technology, provide detailed construction drawings
and concise equipment specifications. We review contractor’s submittals and provide on-site inspections to ensure
results that meet the strigent standards of our carefully prepared project documents.
