PROGRAMMING AND PLANNING
As part of a needs assessment, introduce specialty issues early in order to avoid interruptions later to design production, and costly design changes, affecting site planning and layout, space planning, design detailing and engineering.

  • Timely involvement of client representatives.

  • Coordination of technical consultants, engineers and architects.

 

DESIGN PROCESS
Revisit the project program at each design phase leading up to production of construction documents.

  • Always question unique/special architectural features for availability, constructability and usability.

 

CONSTRUCTION ISSUES
Always insert ourselves into contractor/vendor planning and production involving critical long-lead and custom products, and specialized construction.
