Partnering meetings between the designers and users of the facilities are the first steps
in a long and meticulous process of sucessful environmental design. The Architects will be involved in setting up interviews
with every possible user group that is likely to provide meaningful input to the design. Our track record of problem solving
is the result of an unusually close working relationship with committees and staff members responsible for various departments
occurring within the organization. It would not be prudent to approach a complex project based on preconceived ideas of a
"prototype" solution. The Architect should always develop the project with close attention to detail and sensitive
awareness of users needs within individual departments.
Architects are not unfamilier
with the requirements to design within somewhat limited budgets and financial constraints. Regardless of what the scale of
the project is, the Architect and design team is trained to be responsible for budget concerns during the design phase. An
excellent value for initial investment on project is one of the keys to a successful project. Control of budget requirements
becomes an integral part of the Architects service to the client. Carefully coordinated of the project team and well detailed
design solutions will translate into accurate and complete construction documents. Good construction documents that are incorporated
into the "contract for construction" between the "Owner" and a General Contractor will assure the owner
that the value of the intended facility designed will match the owners budget. The best design does not consist of the most
expensive solutions, but is made by prudent and realistic awareness of the project scope and budget.
