THE DESIGN PROCESS:
Once we have met with you and discussed the project and you feel comfortable working with us we will take you through our 'Conditions of Engagement'.
This document provides protection to both parties, sets out our fees for the various stages of the project and clearly defines each parties responsibilities to each other and information we need from you to begin the project.
Following first contact we will arrange to meet with you at your site in order to get a feel for the lay of the land and any existing structures. We will discuss your wants and needs, budget and construction method. We will then ask that you put this to paper to form the written brief for the project. This is a very important document that forms the 'recipe' for the final built outcome. It is generally not a static document, but one that changes and develops as we move together through the design process.
We are happy to work with you to develop the brief which (for a new home) might include such things as: The general program: number of bedrooms, double garage, family room etc. The look and feel of the building and how this may reflect your personality How the building will be used and how it will fit to your specific lifestyle now and in the future special requirements you may have such as special furniture placement, access issues, children or extended families requirements etc.
What you like and dislike about other buildings that you have experienced, your budget and preferred construction method furniture placement, access issues, children or extended families requirements etc. What you like and dislike about other buildings that you have experienced, your budget, and what your preferred construction method might be.
