We enjoy educating our clients on options, and advocating for them throughout the process. We will establish a standard of quality for the project that builders will be required to meet. We enjoy a collaborative and exploratory process of design and will never force a client into a preconceived model that doesn’t meet their needs.
In today’s construction environment, having a builder on board early in the process allows the project to closely track escalating construction costs in the industry. We enjoy working closely with builders who become a collaborator throughout the process, and we are experts in how to enable a project to be “prefab-friendly.”
Even in prefab, the site must come first. Our process begins with a predesign analysis in which we collect information on your site to ensure that there are no undiscovered features or zoning hiccups that will affect your project. Although in prefab, there is an effort to create standard models, the site must be the ultimate arbiter of the design.
Green begins with solar orientation from day one. We and our partnering fabricators and builders are educated in green strategies such as super-insulation, airtightness, durability, indoor air quality, and low-energy HVAC. Prefabrication is also a successful strategy for minimizing construction waste and reducing the on-site impact of construction activity. We are a resource for green options and will back it up with quantitative design metrics.
