Step by step
How we work
Describe the step of your work and show how it helps to achieve results.
As a full-service architectural firm, Measured is engaged in every phase of a project from concept to completion, enabling the creation of environments (building, interiors and landscape) that facilitate the desires of clients. Our process ensures this.
From the start we collaborate closely with our clients to comprehend their aspirations and requirements. Our aim is to grasp the significance of your preferences and safeguard them throughout the entire project duration.
This is the stage where we actively create concepts by translating ideas into schematic drawings, solidifying the outcomes of the exploration phase. Through ongoing discussions with clients, we iteratively refine our concept design.
At this stage, we prepare formal drawings for submission to the Planning Department to obtain the building permit. The budget is now in the hands of the chosen builder, and the client, architect, and general contractor have further clarified the schedule. While awaiting municipal approval, we also complete the detailed construction documentation required for the builder's use.
Once building commences, we provide construction administration, which includes both field reviews and billing oversight. We ensure that the general contractor is building what we’ve designed and has been approved by the municipality, and we work together on solutions for conditions that could not have been foreseen and are in keeping with the original intent of the project.
