Initiating a construction project can be a daunting task. Securing financing, hiring an architect, finding a builder, can all be challenging. Fortunately there is a low risk consultation that can help called a “Discovery Review”. It provides clients, architects, and consultants an indispensable overview of any scope of project without a substantial investment in time or financial resources.
It’s an investigation and analysis of the many factors which influence a project’s outcome. There is a widespread problem in the construction industry where design or even construction is initiated before all the research and homework is done, often with disastrous and expensive results. Clearly defining parameters up front avoids the potential for disconnect between expectation and what’s actually possible.
Through a process of interview, research, and analysis, a comprehensive scope of the work is developed that addresses quantitative needs, essential qualities, budget, and regulatory requirements. It’s essential information for any project that can then be used by any architect.
Most reviews start at $850 and take 3 to 4 days to complete. Larger projects take more effort.
