What’s included in our Architectural Design:

Preliminary Design

Computer generated renderings of the project will be created to assist with visualization and decision-making.  If multiple design options present themselves, they will be documented during this phase for your consideration.

Design Development/ Revisions

Revisions and development to further define one design.  This phase will apply only to the first option completed, and will be used to make decisions, and select materials that can apply to all other options.

Construction Documents
