Design Process 

1. Initial Consultation

 

Local clients: we begin by scheduling an initial consultation with you on-site, at the project's location. During this meeting we will discuss the scope of the project and your individual wants and needs. On site, we will do a walk-through of your property to gain a better understanding of the space. We will identify opportunities and challenges and discuss options for the next step in the design process.

3. Measurements, Survey, & Site plan

After the contract has been signed and approved, we will arrange a visit to the project site to take detailed measurements and photographs for reference purposes. This may have already been completed at the initial design meeting. 

5. Construction Documents & Plans

After the design concept is finalized and approved, you can chose to purchase the technical schematics of the project. We can create swimming pool build plans, hardscape plans, landscape and lighting plans. 

If you are in the Florida area and ready to build skip to the next step. 

2. Our Contract

 

Using the information gathered at our  meeting, we will create a conceptual design agreement for you. This will cover the scope of the design and estimated design fee for you to review and approve.

4. Design Conceptualization

During this stage we go to work to create visual aids that will help you visual your project. We will create and present full-color, realistic renderings and virtual walk-through videos of your space. This step is helpful to see your project before construction even begins and really let's you experience the possibilities of design. We put together the concept, plants & material lists, and details which are all revised and finalized.
