Our Process


Positive Energy Process Logo

 

We've streamlined the client experience to keep things simple, transactional, and easier. Our design process syncs up directly with architectural design phases to ensure that true integrated design occurs. When it comes time to start building, we make sure we're aligned with the contractor and installer to support their questions. We practice integrated project delivery from beginning to end.
