Bringing Structure to Life!
It's what we do!
What makes us different? We spend more time on the research than most other firms who rush their clients into the design phase because that is where they earn more money.
The consequence of inadequate, upfront, research of needs and options is like constructing a building on a bad foundation!
We understand the process and know that fears can come up along with worries of potential problems, but we are here for you as a team and face them head on starting with our proprietary process, we offer as a first phase service that we call, Base Camp Feasibility Analysis™.
As a rock climber, I can tell you that the design process and preparing for a rock climb are very similar! Thorough preparation allows us to face and overcome our fears and conquer the challenge.
Research, proper tools and equipment, as well as having the best team possible provide the foundation. And our proprietary process gets everyone off on the right foot. In fact we will only work with clients who are prepared to allow us to provide our Base Camp™.
Watch the short video on our START HERE page for information on avoiding the most costly mistake. The valuable insights you gain from completing this first phase can be used by us or any other architect and will ultimately produce a better result, getting your project headed in the right direction.
Base Camp Feasibility Analysis™
We developed this process from years of experience, combined with lessons learned during Dan’s rock climbing excursions! We start by working with our client to establish a clear, detailed vison for their project and set goals to help us clarify and quantify what we want to achieve. Zoning, Code and Design Review Board needs, options and analysis, combined with the project vision, allow our clients to make the best decisions possible, at this early phase of the process. For more information, watch our short video on our START HERE page.

This is our proprietary approach to the schematic design process! Our first step is to update the goals vision we established with the Base Camp™ discoveries during the research process. Then, we move into the schematic design phase, which includes design charrettes which quickly and efficiently help think through the many different possible options and narrow it down to the 2 or 3 really important ideas. Quick schematic design sketching vets the ideas, before we move on to a more finalized set of plans, elevations, renderings and even simple models which brings our concepts to life!
The work begins! Our professional team of architects, designers, project managers, drafters and consulting engineers, bring everything together into a set of drawings that will be permitted, bid out and used for the construction of the building.
This is an important part of any new project or major renovations! Our team will walk you through the local landscape ordinances and select plants suited for the environment and can provide hardscape design such as decorative walkways, patios, walls and gazebos.
