Timeline & Process
Different phases of a project offer unique opportunities for fine-tuning performance. Early on in the process, the focus is geared towards big-picture thinking and passive comfort strategies. Schematic Design is the best time to begin integrating systems such as HVAC and on-site water so that architectural and mechanical system enforce each other. During Design Development and Construction Documents, more information is available and additional systems can be integrated into the architecture. Some disciplines, such as the enclosure consulting are ongoing throughout the entire process and others such as controls and home assessment take place post-construction to ensure that outcomes that were designed for are realized. The services outlined are designed to operate in tandem, each reinforcing the others.
