Your architect will depend on you to communicate about your design preferences, functional requirements, and budget.
To begin the process, we will require several documents to define existing conditions of the site and/or existing improvements and to assist with creating a scope definition. These may include a Lot survey with topographical information, an Improvement Location Certificate, a Deed, a hydrological report and geotechnical information, and a “program” of your very specific wants and needs. The permitting authority may also require further information.
Your timely response to questions and design submissions will help keep the project on track. It is also important for you to raise any concerns you have as the project proceeds, so they can be addressed in the earliest stages.
Working in close partnership with your architect, will help achieve a successful outcome for your project.
