What to Expect

So, I have been recommended to you by a friend, a contractor, or you have seen some of my work, and you now wonder what happens from here.

The first step will be for us to get together to discuss the parameters of your project. I prefer to meet at your house or business so we can walk through the project in real time. This allows me to get a better understanding of your wants and needs for this project.

With a clear understanding of the project, I will return to my office and prepare a proposal for Architectural Services.

Upon acceptance of the proposal, I would schedule a time to visit your house or business to measure all of the spaces relating to the Scope of Work.

Utilizing the field measurements, the existing conditions are drawn and zoning/code information are researched. We now have clear understanding of the parameters of your project.

With this information we are ready to start designing the project. I will develop sketch designs of the plans and elevations for your review and comments.

When we have finalized the design (usually accomplished in 1 to 3 meetings), we are ready to prepare the construction documents.

The Construction Documents are used by the contractors to prepare a bid for your project. They are also used to obtain construction permits from your town.
