The following is an outline of architectural services typically offered by us at Pal-Yekko Engineering:
Project Inception – The planning of your project starts here. Working together with you, we share your project needs, dreams, and goals.
Schematic Design – During this stage, we will begin by preparing preliminary design sketches based on your requirements and budget to explore and illustrate possible options. We will review these options with you, pointing out the merits and responding to your input.
Design Development – This stage refines the agreed-upon schematic design for a clear definition of the scope and quality of the finished project. Further cost projections will determine how closely the design conforms to the budget expectation or what, if any, adjustments are required.
Construction Documents – After deciding on the design concepts, we prepare working drawings and specifications. These are required to obtain building permits and bids and to guide the contractor in construction.
Bidding and Negotiation – At this stage we can advise you on your choice of contractor – usually done by calling for competitive bids. We shall help you to evaluate the offer, select the contractor, and also prepare the contract between you and the contractor. We also have a list of contractors we have worked with before.
Construction and Contract Administration – We will consult with you and advise you during construction. On-site visits will determine if construction is proceeding in general accordance with the contract and that the design, materials, and craftsmanship meet acceptable standards.
