Initial discussion between the contractor, designer, and the client to gather information, establish the scope of work and determine the budget goals for the project. This time together will also help us all to determine if we feel comfortable enough working with one another to undertake building the dreams that have been discussed.
Using the information obtained from initial discussion to develop a floor plan for client review. Upon approval of preliminary design, a Design Agreement will then be drafted & signed in order to proceed with drawing the specific details of the discussed scope of work. This phase will require a design fee to be paid (cost to be determined based on each individual project).
Further develop the details and non-structural specifications of the project. At this stage we will also be finalizing the construction details and creating the 'working drawings' to be provided to the city. The overall project proposal will be based on & created in tandem with the creation of the drawings. Upon final approval of drawings, they will then be ready for submission to the city for approval.
Based upon the approved drawings & project proposal, a Construction Contract will be drafted & signed. The working drawings will then be submitted to the city planning & building departments, which will then issue all relevant permits. Once the permit is obtained the Build phase begins; the construction will be scheduled, started, and completed to your satisfaction.
