Needs & Options Report

The first step you will need to complete is Needs and Options review.

We design this process a few years ago because we there is a huge issue in the construction industry of people starting design and construction before they have fully done their research and homework.

People are trying to run before they have the walk mastered.

The foundations are the most important part of the whole house because everything is built on top. Its very expensive to change the foundations once you have started to build on top of them. But vary easy to change them if they are simply lines on a paper.

So we spend a little more time on the research than most other firms who rush their clients into the design phase.

Does that make sense?

In fact we will only work with clients who are prepared to do the Needs and Options review properly. We will not rush this step. It only causes cost over runs later if we take short cuts and don’t establish solid foundations.

There are four important steps before building starts:

  1. Needs and Options review – which is the first step
  2. Early Sketch Design
  3. Working out the Details
  4. Building documentation and Permit drawings
  5. Construction

The Needs and Options review is the most important step because it provides the foundational thinking that everything else builds upon.

The consequence of inadequate upfront research of needs and options is like building a house on bad foundations.
