Design & Entitlement
We are dedicated to providing our clients with innovative design & entitlement solutions. From the inception of the project we work hand-in-hand with our clients in the development of the project. Our goal is to create synergy amongst the project team, fostering an exchange of ideas and obtaining results that are creative, realistic, and integrated with our clients’ objectives.
There are three key components that distinguish successful design: meeting the owner’s needs for function, aesthetics, and cost. We work closely with our clients to understand their needs, and we work closely with the design professionals to help them successfully interpret those needs to provide each client with a facility that is functional, pleasing, and works within their financial parameters.
DESIGN TEAM SELECTION
We have an excellent track record of assembling teams that are qualified through experience, ability, financial strength, and positive collaborative attitude. Whether your project is negotiated or hard bid we can simplify the process and guide you through selecting the right team.
When it comes to entitlement coordination we understand that time is of the essence. Our experience and relationships with local agencies and municipalities help in achieving a timely and smooth entitlement process.
We work to ensure that projects are designed to a budget, not budgeted to a design. We have the financial expertise to develop budgets and proformas to help determine the financial viability of your project. Other services include:
- Developing the overall project budget including design, construction, permits, equipment, and administrative costs
- Suggesting design alternatives to keep the project within budget without compromising needs or concepts
- Soliciting vendor proposals and reviewing proposals
- Drafting and negotiating vendor contracts
- Providing routine financial reports
We understand the adage that “time is money,” and we take seriously our job to ensure that the project moves forward as planned. We work closely with the design team and the general contractor to develop and refine the project’s master schedule. This schedule will include specific delivery dates for various components of the design as well as agency approvals and permitting, along with the specifics of the construction process.
