Every design starts with a complete understanding of your business operations. A pretty building doesn’t mean much if it isn’t operationally efficient or there’s no logical expansion plan.
Programming and Space Planning
We interview the owner and leadership team about what they want/need in their new space. The resulting document drives design decisions for the rest of the project. With experience in over 300 beer facilities, we know the questions to ask that ensure your desires will drive the process. By assigning adjacencies and rough sizing to each space we begin to get a feel for the overall scope of your project.
Create Schematic Design
Utilizing the latest in design software and incorporating your feedback at every step, we translate your ‘wish list’ into a complete schematic floor plan. In doing so, we keep an eye on constructability and costs to ensure you’re only going to build what you want.
Prepare Specifications for Bidding
In order to maximize the benefits of bidding your project, the documents used must be as complete as possible. We write documents that include the schematic design, performance-based requirements for all work (site, concrete, HVAC, etc.), and develop a finish schedule that specifies everything needed for your bidders to develop true apples-to-apples numbers.
