How We Begin the Process

We enjoy getting to know you and your business so we can effectively design for your current and changing needs. Our goals in meeting with you initially involves identifying the scope of work, discussing the process of design and construction, and understanding the project goals and budgets. With this information, we will begin to outline a path forward and steps needed to complete the project.

Bringing the Design to Life

Our process continues with the client seeing the vision of his concept come alive in a drawing or rendering. We outline the restaurant design that follows your recommendations. We mock-up the interior and exterior layout of the eating facility. Detailed designs are brought to life through digital technology to make modern, life-like renderings. The interior and exterior are designed to show what it could look like. We explain the process and keep you informed every step of the way.

Meeting Budget & Permit Requirements

We are meticulous in our details of your design. Designing with aesthetics and efficiency while focusing on budget limitations as well as the design standards of the municipality. Research into the municipality’s design requirements on the front end of your design ensures a more expedient review process for permit. Having done projects all over the country we are adept at the plan review process. This makes for an effective review and permit approval process saving time and money.
