Each project begins with the architect’s ideas. We gain an understanding of the architect’s vision and ideas and then offer cost-effective solutions to deliver the design in its entirety.
This is where we turn a designer’s ideas into a buildable concept. Our experience lends us the expertise to know what elements will complement the design while still staying within budget. Here, we meet the architects ideas and bring the fabrication cost into focus. In doing so, we provide cost and material options to the architect and client that work within the timeline and budget of the project.
We keep communication open and take every step to ensure your every expectation is met. During this stage, we present clear plans to all parties for the approval to proceed.
Once we have approval to proceed, we begin executing our internal engineering discussion. This is a detailed discussion of means and methods of fabrication and installation. Topics can include construction joints, size of elements, the coordination of outside components, vendor selections, coordination of finishes, and materials.
With approvals and key details resolved, our team moves into field condition measurements and verification as well as very detailed shop drawings. These drawings include every detail from dimensions, finish locations, and grain direction. Once we complete these drawings, we submit them to the architect for full review and approval before proceeding beyond this point.
Sample Submittals & Approval
While shop drawings are being prepared, we create a list of finish and material submittals for the architect to review and approve. This step includes all finished materials in the design including laminate color and finish, metal finishes, natural stone, marble, or synthetic stone. Once the architect has reviewed and approved these samples, we begin the final fabrication process.
Fabrication & Sourcing
With all approvals submitted, we begin acquiring all materials and components.
We pre-assemble the pieces to discover any hidden issues before we get into the field for installation. Then, we disassemble the components and carefully pack and transport them to the site. Our skilled crews repeat the set-up and installation sequence and follow by installing scribes and fillers as needed. We finish by adjusting all doors and drawers and do a final cleaning.
Inspection & Approval
The final task in our process is the detailed inspection and approval of the project by the client and architect. We receive a punch-list, if any, and complete our final finishes.
