Designing & Building
THE PROCESS AND THE JOURNEY
In the early phases of programming and schematic design we create conservative financial models addressing construction, fabrication and professional fees. This allows for design and management time to be spent efficiently and effectively.
We begin with a close analysis of all project components. Academic study of project materials helps to inform the overall process. From there, we set a design direction that takes into account logistical obstacles, design preferences and financial considerations.
Design is meant to embrace the creative with the cognitive, always pushing for the best possible solution. We break down the process of design into phases, each one serving a specific purpose and leading intelligently into the next. The design decisions made early on are important for building upon, especially for larger and more complex projects. We closely manage this process to ensure quality and consistency.
The construction phase of any project carries with it an entirely new set of challenges. The firm engages building and manufacturing professionals that work towards the highest level of craftsmanship while maintaining strict management protocol. All construction entails change. We manage it effectively so that the end result is the best possible project.
