Following client approval of the concept design and accompanying budget a final master plan is developed. It indicates overall planning for the property and has general grade changes, dimensions and recommendations on materials.
Final design is typically on a to-scale plan showing the overall property or project. Other plans may show enlarged areas of the property such as the main house, a particular garden or project area, etc.
Final design can also include construction plans such as grading, layout, planting can also be completed for more exacting detail. Construction details, plant lists and specifications, as required, would also be completed.
A cost estimate is developed using the approved final design, which outlines the materials and labor costs associated with implementing the final design. The cost estimate can be broken down into logical phases for construction scheduling and budgeting purposes.
We look forward to hearing from you about any projects concerning design, permitting, master planning or construction management.
