After the initial analysis is complete, we begin working and refining the design, first in sketch form, then eventually in more formal drawings. Throughout the design development phase, are discussions and meetings so the client can weigh in on the decisions being made, both aesthetically and financially. This is a very exciting and collaborative process, because the client can see in real time the budget impacts that each design decision makes. Once the design is fully refined and the budget agreed upon we move on to construction documents, and contracts. From there permits can be filed for and once issued construction begins.
