Whether you are building a new home or renovating an existing building, this is the most important stage of your project. From programming the schematic design (ideas and sketches) through design development to the construction documents, your time, energy and budget in this area will save time, energy and budget throughout the project, and ultimately result in a better outcome.
We can assist with design elements from material selection, layout, systems (ventilation, heating/cooling, electrical, plumbing, smart home, renewables, etc.), structural and much more.
Our goal is to help achieve your vision while optimizing health, sustainability and resilience in your design.
Sustainability is more than just energy efficiency. That is certainly a major part of it, for cost savings and reduction of greenhouse gases, but our view of sustainability goes beyond energy, to encompass, health, comfort, resilience, lighting, air quality, biophilic design and much more. Most people spend about 90% of their time indoors, so the resulting benefits from this wholistic approach will impact the wellbeing of you and your family.
