1. PRELIMINARY JOB PLANNING
Once we receive your request we will review your project and reach out with any questions to create your proposal. We're usually able to provide a ball park price on our initial call. We will then schedule a site visit and get you prepared for what we need to prepare to get started.
2. INITIAL MEETING & SITE MEASUREMENT
At our initial site meeting we will discuss your design vision, timeline, construction budget and any existing building code considerations . Design Appruv willl measure your site to produce as-built drawings in order to begin the schematic design process. (Any provided existing/as-built blueprints, drawings or sketches will come in handy, however due to our rigorous design process and attention to detail we will pull our own measurements. This is essential for the detail necessary to assure no issues arise down the road.)
3. ITERATIVE DESIGN PROCESS & 3D VISUALIZATION
Our team of skilled draftsman will prepare an initial set of drawings for our as-built meeting. We will then start to dive into your proposed design to develop a set of project parameters and scope of work to establish your needs. Our multi-step intensive iterative design process irons out the kinks to bring your dream to reality!
4. DUE DILIGENCE & CODE COMPLIANCE CONSULTING
Design Appruv will now take your project through our proprietary due diligence process custom tailored to your specific municipality, as they differ greatly. We will also begin consulting our engineers and acquire your Title 24 Energy & CalGreen Certifications before heading to your respective permit office for final submission. Your drawings will then go through a rigorous design review or "Plan Check" where the city will comment on your proposed design to adhere to their standards.
* We are able to create timelines for each project per the requirements of each of our clients.
Specific project experiences may differ greatly.
