Schematic design materials must clearly communicate a multitude of design elements to clients that often find the review of traditional equipment plans challenging. By using a combination of REVIT 3D images, elevation sketches, written descriptions, and equipment data sheets, we assist the client in developing a clear picture of the proposed design, allowing them to provide accurate feedback to the design team at the earliest stages of the design process.
We can also assist your interior design group with theme and material suggestions for both production and serving areas, provide lighting suggestions to your engineering group, and assist clients with menu development, food production guidance, and presentation options.
We understand that all project team members need detailed food service design information as soon as possible during the design development phase. The architect and structural engineer want the walls to stop moving, the interior designer needs exact equipment sizes to coordinate millwork details, and the engineers need complete and accurate M/E/P connection requirements. Our goal is to deliver this information at the earliest possible date. Our construction documents include equipment plans schedules, M/E/P connection plans, elevations, and section 114000 written specifications that assure accurate and competitive bidding.
Following completion of contract documents, we assist the architect and client with permitting, bid review and analysis, and coordination with contractors and equipment suppliers. Careful review of all equipment submittals helps insure that the client receives equipment as specified and in full compliance with the construction documents. We strive to minimize change orders and respond to RFI's as quickly as possible to help insure that all projects will be completed on time and on budget.
