Working Together

Step One – Programming:
A programming meeting is held with you to discuss your vision and priorities.

Step Two – Schematic Design: Based on the Programming Meeting, we present possible solutions in rough, conceptual drawings during a Schematic Design Meeting.

Step Three – Design Development: Once a design direction is decided, we refine the drawings to more completely reflect your goals. At this point, we’ll enter into a new contract with you for continuing services.

Step Four – Contract Documents: Once designs are finalized and materials selected, the studio prepares a thorough set of drawings and specifications that become the contract between you and your builder to price, permit, and construct the project.

Step Five – Contract Administration: Construction begins!
