Scope & Site Analysis

Once the goals and objectives of the client have been established, we begin a detailed study of the existing conditions of the site. This allows us to inventory its unique physical characteristics, identify potential design opportunities and constraints, and analyze the site’s overall potential with respect to the project.

Conceptual Design

The conceptual design phase is truly a collaborative and creative effort in which we begin to explore preliminary design ideas. A variety of alternative concepts are created, evaluated and presented to the client for review and feedback. In this critical phase, the continued refinement of conceptual ideas evolves and ultimately forms the foundation on which the design will progress.

Design Development

During the design development phase, we devote our efforts to working closely with the client to refine the desired concept plan to include all of the necessary detail and specifications that will allow the concept to be built. This phase includes the selection of materials, preliminary cost estimation, final grading as well as many other critical details.

Construction Administration

Construction Administration is a service performed by a Landscape Architect during the construction phase of the project. These tasks may include reviewing and approving material submissions and contract documents, visiting the site in order to observe construction and to verify that contractors are conforming to the quality and design intent of the Design Development Plan and permits. In addition, they will maintain close client communication and potentially develop new design documents or alter existing design documents to respond to the needs of the ongoing construction process
