Upon agreement to move to the Schematic phase, the Designer synthesizes the ideas presented in the Concept phase into a single plan and focuses on design details and product specification. With this defined scope, our team meets to develop a more refined estimate. At this point, if the design and estimates feel good to you, a salesperson often offers a Commitment Contract which secures your place in our production schedule. This allows the design process to continue without setting back the construction date. If there are zoning requirements, our team generally begins the process for approval after the Commitment Contract is signed.
