It is not uncommon for a commercial or residential organization or individual to know it needs a project, but not clear on how best to start…or worse yet, to launch into the design process without carefully establishing the groundwork.
Just as you would not expect your doctor to prescribe a medication for you without first diagnosing your illness, likewise it is very risky to begin design without first establishing your project’s unique objectives and parameters.
It is for this reason that we have developed the Project Strategy Review, a necessary first step to establishing the basis of your project.
The Project Strategy Review will allow you to fully understand the requirements, constraints, and potential roadblocks for your project.
It will minimize your risk of faulty design decisions by laying the proper groundwork up front.
It will allow you to create the proper foundation, saving money in the long run.
It will allow you to explore your goals in a structured format.
It helps us determine if this working relationship is a fit for both parties before fully committing to further design services.
The Project Strategy Review is a structured “smart design process” that provides a registered architect’s opinion on the feasibility of your project. David Crawford, the region’s leading commercial Design & Build Architect, will advise you on the potential opportunities and risks of your project and includes the following:
We will discuss your preliminary objectives.
We will develop an outline brief describing functions, uses, spaces and the required “look and feel”.
We will outline energy conservation and sustainability advantages.
We will review potential building/site options/solutions and identify Planning/Zoning/Code issues in outline form.
We will prepare a conceptual budget.
We will prepare a preliminary schedule.
Outcome: a Project Strategy Review Report that you can use to get an accurate proposal from us - it is yours to keep.
A major organization on the East Coast believed nearby markets represented opportunities to provide needed services. Our initial engagement helped them determine the best use of a site, what type of facility should be there, what groups might also want space, how to attract and "keep" high quality employees and how to use a tailored development process to lease to third parties portions of the facility. This groundwork led to on-schedule and on-budget design and construction of facilities, which were so successful that this system initiated multiple phases for five years.
We provide a RODI - a "Return on the Design Investment" that help a client's Brand expand, attract and keep high quality customers and employees.
The investment for the Project Strategy Review is inclusive of the initial local site visit and follow-up meeting.
