Services also include coordinating the work of technical consultants, obtaining fabrication and construction cost estimates, assisting Client in selecting contractors, and conducting field inspections during fabrication and construction.
The firm's broad exposure to architectural design, interior design and product design assignments has had a profound impact on its work. Through careful analysis of design opportunities and constraints, creative problem-solving and attention to detail, results are achieved that are both exciting and unique, yet sensible and focused on Client's needs. By keeping overhead costs low and by fully utilizing available resources, cost-effective designs are provided within budget.
Through ongoing communication and periodic presentations, the Client retains ultimate control of the project. Clients benefit by minimizing cost overruns and anxiety, while maximizing project quality and satisfaction with the final result.
