Approach design with the intent of implementing all potential sustainable concepts. With a LEED accredited architect on staff, each project is analyzed and strategically approached to achieve the highest appropriate level of USGBC / LEED certification.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) using Revit
Use Autodesk Revit software to develop a 3-D Building Information Model (BIM), aiding in the development of schematic designs, precise construction documents, visualization of the final product, and integration of all systems, including mechanical and structural components.
Analyze the client's budget, needs and goals to determine the feasibility
of maintaining or renovating an existing structure compared to constructing
a new building or an addition.
Master Development Plans
Develop a master plan for the overall use of the site that can be
sequenced into phases as the budget permits. Each project phase
can be advanced according to this overall development plan.
Study various sites to evaluate soil conditions, topography, utilities
(including sewer, water, electrical, telephone and cable) and other
Work with the client to establish a program to determine the type,
number and size of various rooms required for a complete project.
Assist in establishing a budget based on the project program.
and Graphic Solutions
Produce 3-dimensional computer animations, hand-drawn and/or computer
generated perspective renderings, architectural models and other
materials to assist in visually understanding the aesthetic direction
of a project throughout the design process.
Provide early sketches of space allocation (rooms) and circulation
(corridors) based on the project program.
Produce design development drawings providing greater detail than
those of the schematic phase. From this information, an accurate
cost estimate can be established to compare with the budget.
Provide contract documents including drawings and specifications
to be used for the construction of the project.
Supply contractors with the contract documents for competitive bidding.
Upon receiving the bids, assist the client in evaluating the bids
to make selections.
Observe the construction to verify that the contractor is supplying
and installing materials in accordance with the specifications and
intent of the drawings.
Code Compliance and Analysis
Review an existing or new facility to ensure compliance with municipal,
state and federal codes.
Provide space planning, finish selections and finish coordination.
Extended services range from preparing furniture specifications
to placing artwork.
A contractor is added to the design team early in the design. The
construction price is negotiated and refined throughout the design
process with input from all team members.
Architectural Signage & Graphic Systems
Design not only the highly visible exterior signs for a building
but also the interior directional signs and illustrations complying
with the Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines. We have even
designed a special "Bio-board" for use in Alzheimers
