Our Process

It all begins with a conversation.

​Before getting started, we ask a lot of questions -- about your goals, priorities, and dare we say -- budget. Often at this stage, we spot critical issues that haven’t been considered -- saving you time, money and headaches down the road.

​Once we’ve defined your vision and requirements, we set in motion a process that is tailored to your needs. Depending on the project size and complexity, the steps typically include:  

  • ​​Strategize with team members on ways to achieve your priorities while maximizing your return on investment.
  • ​Present preliminary drawings, cost estimates, and a timeframe that reflect your goals and budget.
  • ​Develop and submit construction documents, and refine them as needed
  • ​Navigate the approval process by attending community board and tenant meetings, and advocating on your behalf.
  • ​Respond to objections, suggest alternatives, and assist with negotiations between parties.
  • ​Observe construction, ensuring that construction details are consistent with drawings and specifications.
