Initial meeting

If you are ready to start or if you just want more information, let’s schedule an initial meeting. This virtual initial meeting is free and typically lasts between 30 minutes to an hour. It’s gives you a chance to get to know us and gives us a chance to get to know you and your project.



Your Architect and/or Project Concierge work with you to define and understand your goals, concerns, and budget as well as the regulations, limitations, and feasibility of available options. We explain what is required, when and why it will be needed, and the process and timeline you should expect.



At this step, your design team, led by your Architect, puts the puzzle together. Everything is reviewed with you and revised until it meets your approval. Your project team presents options and recommendations, and your Project Concierge ensures you have the information you need  to keep the project moving forward.



Once the look of the project is finalized, it’s time to define the how the project will be constructed. While the Construction Documents are being prepared by the Architecture team, the Engineering team work out the technical aspects of the project.



In the long run, the cost of energy consumption of most buildings outweighs the initial construction cost. We ensure your project is not just compliant with current energy regulations but that it is as energy efficient and cost effective.



Your project has reached a major milestone and you are ready to apply for a building permit. The plan review process can be the most frustrating step of any project and sometimes the longest. Your Project Concierge will keep you informed of the status. 



Finally, the time has come to turn all the effort into reality. Your Project Concierge continues to be available to provide information, answer questions, assist with decisions, and to coordinate with your contractor. We’re not finished until your project is finished.
