Planning and Development
We can provide site analysis, access, circulation, parking layouts for your projects. This is often the first step in any project but could be the first step in deciding a direction of a project. We work hard to build strong relationships with local building officials, to understand local development guidelines, and of course, placemaking is a primary goal. Looking at projects holistically to provide our clients with the best solutions is critical.
This is the first step to assess how much energy your home wastes and helps to evaluate what measures you can implement to reduce this consumption. In other words, an energy audit will provide a list of things that can be fixed in your home to reduce energy bills and increase comfort.

A well-prepared and coordinated specification communicates what the project client is buying from the contractor. It deals with scope, quality, activity, and responsibility, and as such complements the contract documents. During construction, the specification is used to check the conformance of the contractors’ work to the goals set in the design stage.
