Design Ideas

Every space is different. Every structure has its unique reason for existing and it's equally unique challenges.
We might envision a hundred ideas before arriving at the perfect one for a project or client. It's a necessary part of the creative design process and one that we take seriously. Here's how we do it:


  • determine precisely the goals, objectives and the projects scope of work. 
  • discuss expectations and develop timelines.
  • prepare design schematics to accommodate the goals and objectives.
  • prepare working drawings and peripherals as per scope of work and to the requirements of local by-laws and the Ontario Building Code. (OBC)
  • Put them to paper and release for permit and construction.
