We draw from our extensive experience to take a holistic approach
to design process. Every project is planned and executed with the
whole process in mind, from design through to construction. At
every stage the project requisite are balanced with the client’s
expectations, thus ensuring the client is fully informed and aware
of the various elements involved in a projected budget. We work
hard to build strong relationships with our clients so that we can
fully meet respect and meet the clint’s needs.
We provide invaluable advice on the most suitable method
of construction for the project and budget. As part of our
construction management services, we also assist our clients
with all the necessary municipal (and any other related) permits
and documentation.

Every project evolves through five phases:

| 1 | Preliminary Design
| 2 | Schematic Design
| 3 | Design Development
| 4 | Construction Documents
| 5 | Construction

| 1 | PRELIMINARY DESIGN
Project inception begins straight o$ with the initial meeting with
our client to immediately put into focus his requirements and
preferences. This initial consultation helps us develop project
objectives and prioritization. At this stage, we thoroughly
document the site and context to identify all its features and
then acquire a current boundary survey. A preliminary analysis
of the regulatory planning laws will help establish the project’s
regulatory parameters and identify any authorities that have
jurisdiction over the site.

| 2 | SCHEMATIC DESIGN
Once we have a full understanding of the site, its existing
conditions and any zoning or other restrictions on the property,
we start to explore various design concepts. A plan starts to take
shape as we render a series of preliminary design sketches and
diagrams based on the client’s brie#ng and budget.
We explore and o$er various options for the project’s general
layout and creative direction, always keeping our client closely
involved.

| 3 | DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
The basic design layout and scope leads to the re#ning of the
agreed-upon schematic design for a clearer de#nition of the
scope and quality of the #nished project. We will explore further
design details, including construction methods and materials,
and #nalise cost projections. Our design concepts are rendered
through drawings, sketches and physical and/or computer models
– methods that help our client understand the building proposal
and feel con#dent moving forward. At the end of this phase, the
“feel” of the project can be easily conceived by the client. If the
scope allows, we can include such interior details as the selection
and sourcing of plumbing and lighting, kitchen speci#cs furnishing
and #nishings.

| 4 | CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS
Upon #nal approval of the design concepts, we start to coordinate
the construction dettails, speci#ed materials, necessary
consultants and working drawings and speci#cations. We ensure
that the proposal complies with building regulations identi#ed in
the Preliminary Design phase.
We help secure the necessary building permits by preparing
the application, assisting our clients throughout the application
process and o$ering guidance with respect to any other required
approvals.

| 5 | CONSTRUCTION
Throughout the construction phase, we work alongside our
client’s contractor or construction manager to help keep the
project on track, running smoothly and in accordance with
building regulations. During on-site visits we will determine if
construction is proceeding according to the contract, and that
the design, materials and quality of work meet with acceptable
standards We will assist with the resolution of issues that arise
during construction.
We o$er our own complete construction management services,
ensuring that the entire design and construction phases run
smoothly. Despite careful planning, unexpected issues and new
opportunities arise as every project develops. As the construction
manager, we can easily re#ne details of the project as the design
continues to evolve throughout construction phases. Read Less
