Calvert Design Studio meets with the client to discuss the overall ‘vision’ of the project. Whether it is a single family dwelling or a large multi-family project, we review and discuss through the project requirements, formulate a schedule, establish the budget criteria and review the preferred suppliers while assessing the level of project management required.
Design Direction and preliminary concepts
A ‘Design Direction Meeting’ is held between the client, CDS and any other significant consultants. CDS will provide the client with concept sketches/images and suggested product samples of the design intent to initiate the project direction.
Architectural Drawing Critique
CDS reviews the architectural plans to ensure that optimal functionality and creative design desires are incorporated into the technical drawing package. Once the parameters for the project are determined, we begin the project programming and concept development phase.
Design Specifications and technical drawings
CDS selects and documents all finishes and fixtures while simultaneously creating a detailed specification package. This package creates a professional document for the construction process to be carried through as a steering wheel for all members of the active team to collaborate and create effectively and efficiently. These drawings include detailed floor plans, reflected ceiling plans, elevations, sections and necessary millwork drawings.
Project management is a key part in the success of every project. Our philosophy as a company bases on the team we surround ourselves with. We are an integral member of an intensive team which includes; the builder, trades, developers, clients and marketing team.
