PHASE 1: DISCOVERY
First let’s meet and discus your goals and needs. Maybe you have a specific vision of what you’d like your project to be, maybe you need a bit of inspiration and guidance.
We call this phase discovery because it’s a shared exploration. Perhaps an idea you have had will be shaped by us relating a previous project experience. You may know only that you want to remodel, but not know what that might look like. That’s where through the shared mutual process of discovery, we can begin to shape what this project would entail.
Let’s talk about your goals, ideas and inspirations. This phase is fun, engaging and will inform the decisions as we move forward. At this point, everything is changeable, adaptable and possible.
PHASE 2: CONCEPTUAL DESIGN
Here is where we take those visions and those inspirations and make them start to take shape. Working with the ideas and inspirations discussed in the discovery phase, we begin to conceptualize what the project can and will look like. Now those ideas that were just loosely formed before, begin to become visual. You can see how your project would fit and flow with your existing space.
Since this all in the concept phase, changes and revisions don’t mean demolition and destruction. Breathing life into your project and being able to see the design unfold, will provide you with the assurance that your project is custom and catered to your specific needs.
PHASE 3: PRELIMINARY DESIGN
When we have a good and agreed upon concept, it’s time to move it into the preliminary design phase. This brings the project from being a rough sketch and moves concept to concrete. Not really concrete, that’s a little ways down the road but, here we get to flesh out what the project would actually look like and we get specific about dimensions and things that go into the build.
We consider this taking it from the conceptual to the possible. Say it’s a kitchen remodel project; we start to see where cabinets would hang and at what depth and the size of the kitchen island in relation to the rest of the space.
These preliminary design plans will inform the next phases and is where the reality of your
remodeling or addition project becomes visual and tangible.
PHASE 4: FINAL DESIGN
Once we’ve agreed upon the preliminary designs and satisfied concerns and revisions, we can move the plans into the final design phase. This is where things are really tightened up. Details are solidified, and we create for you a stunning visual representation of what the final project will look and feel like. Your remodeling project will be custom to your needs and these plans will feed directly into the build phase.
The advantage of the DESIGN BUILD process is that the build is considered throughout the entirety of the process. You will see your remodeling or addition project come to life here. If we are doing a kitchen remodel, a bathroom remodel, a second floor addition, a master suite addition, when we complete the final design you have a visual representation for how the project will turn out. With careful review, these will stand as the road map for the next steps.
PHASE 5: PLANS & CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS
When we have complete, finished FINAL DESIGN plans, we integrate those design plans into a production based plans and construction drawings. This is the beauty of design build. There is a seamless relationship between the design and the build. It virtually eliminates the budget busting change orders that plague traditional construction.
We design with the build in mind and this means that considerations for time and process are at the forefront.
We plan around your schedule and make an outline that is flexible, fast and focused on making your remodeling project work for you. These plans will be the guideline and roadmap for your project. It will all be laid out and transparent, so that with the anxiety that often surrounds home remodeling, you won’t have any surprises and the project is on-time, on-budget and crafted to needs.
