Project Planning

This process is the sequence of events where the "vision development and information gathering" stage moves through the available "choices and prices" stage into the "specification and blueprint" stage. This co-operative process delivers accurate and targeted projects that are custom tailored to each client's unique variables, finances and priorities. Our project planning process that creates a clearly defined Scope of Work provides results with the very highest levels of customer satisfaction.

Below is an outline of our project planning process and the items we consider at each stage:
