Our Process

Site Survey & Due Diligence

We perform Site surveys and Due Diligence early in the process to help you make informed choices and develop budgets early. Existing building constraints must be carefully reviewed so that equipment and utilities can be properly placed.

Feasibility Studies

With the knowledge gathered from Due Diligence, we study the feasibility of the site and location to fit your program needs.

Entitlements

We negotiate entitlement steps including Staff Level Approval, Planning, Commissions, Design Review Boards, City Councils and Neighborhood Associations.

Prototype Designs

A prototype makes or breaks a concept. How does the concept communicate effectively? Our designers set the language to effectively sell.

Shell Building Design

Good design starts with curb appeal. Whether adapting an existing building to your concept or designing a new shell, our designers make statements.

Construction Drawings and Specifications

We create construction drawings and calculate specifications so your project turns out perfectly.

Roll-Outs

We help you effectively manage multi-unit restaurant roll-outs and schedule milestones important to individual and collective unit openings.

Lighting & System Design

We help to create optimum lighting for the right ambiance and well conditioned spaces for just the right environmental comfort.

Permit Expediting

We have relationships with most building departments and have staff tasked to getting your plans through the building department as quickly as possible.
