Our Process

Art is personally involved in each project working closely with the assigned Project Architect and client.

Designs are developed with the client on a "one-on-one" approach, combining the owner's tastes, project needs, budgetary and design concerns into a uniform, cohesive solution.

Once the project design is in place, we then develop the drawings into a set of construction documents, keeping the client involved throughout the process. These documents are used for bidding, obtaining building permits, and for general construction. We make every effort to work closely with our clients and respect their needs from the initial meeting through the entire construction phase. We measure our success not only by the high quality of the final product but also by the personal satisfaction of our clients.
