PROCESS

CONSULTATION
We begin our process with a consultation to discuss design intention, design inspiration, and a proposed budget. Open communication throughout the project's entirety is paramount in ensuring our clients are satisfied with the final design.
1
PRELIMINARY DESIGN PRESENTATION
Our prepared design for your project will be presented to you. The use of Autodesk Revit gives us an advantage by allowing us to include a 3D walk-through. This approach will allow you to get a better feel and understanding of the space and design. An opportunity to request revisions will occur at this stage and can even be applied to the project during the meeting.
2
FINAL DESIGN PRESENTATION
The final design with all necessary changes from the preliminary design meeting will be presented to you. Printed drawings are distributed and another 3D walk through can be provided if required. The intent of this meeting is to finalize the design to allow for the working drawings to begin.
3
WORKING DRAWINGS & COORDINATION
During this phase of the process we create construction documents and issue a set of drawings that are 95% complete. This allows for pricing to be gathered as well as other consultants such as HVAC, structural and truss designers to coordinate their documents accordingly. VS Design Studio takes care of all co-ordination between consultants to increase efficiency and decrease errors.
4
PERMIT PACKAGE DELIVERY
The final step in the process is the completion and delivery of the permit package. This includes the production of prints of all required construction documents to obtain a permit for your project.
