- Feasibility analyses
- Zoning Review
- Permit/Leasing Process

Starting with sketches, our team works with you to determine the direction of the design through several meetings. The goal is to narrow down the options. These deliverables will lay the ground work for the next phase.
- Floor Plans
- Key Elevations
- Area Analysis
- 3-D Renderings
- Preliminary Cost Estimates
