DEAR PROSPECTIVE CLIENT
Before we start the design, we collect all the information about the project. This includes site, program, budget, client questionnaire, code, and existing survey. Please email your requests and the above when you are ready to request for a meeting. We will patiently guide you through the process.

This meeting time, up to one hour, is free-of-charge (new clients). Any additional charge would be deducted from the design fee should you choose to work with us..
With the information we gather from the meeting and site surveys (if conducted), we render a draft proposal consisting of your project scope, construction schedule, budget and design fee.
