Design Development and Permitting

Once Schematic Design is complete, we move into our Design Development Phase.  If the intention of Schematic Design was to come to an agreement between our office and you as a client, Design Development can be summarized as work to have the idea that we are working with validated by others, typically contractors who might build the project and regulatory bodies such as zoning, historic and planning boards.  During this phase we refine the details of the project, solicit preliminary bids from contractors and go through any required regulatory hearings.
