Napa Design Partners: Our Process
As noted, Napa Design Partners offers a holistic approach to building and customizing commercial and private spaces. Projects range from simple space planning to full-scale renovation and construction. These may include tenant improvements, new build designs (including the necessary submittals), and ultimately overseeing the construction phase to ensure a complete and seamless experience.
Napa Design Partners will proactively coordinate with consulting engineers and local administrative agencies to eliminate any roadblocks before they arise.
The professionals at Napa Design Partners work with their clients through the following process sequence:
During the initial phase, the Design Partners and clients will evaluate prospective properties or buildings. This process may include:
Once the build or remodel location is determined, Napa Design Partners will present multiple sketches for the client’s consideration. This collaborative brainstorming session helps to uncover the client’s preferences and usually provides additional insights.
During this project phase, the Design Team begins to develop representative drawings to present to the client. Where necessary, Napa Design Partners will invite outside consultants to contribute specific technical details to the consultation.
Phase 4: Construction Documents
The Design Team will develop a complete set of drawings depicting precise information and measurements that will be conveyed to the construction contractor, who will execute the project with oversight from Napa Design Partners. Close collaboration between the designer and builder will prevent confusion and misunderstanding while the project is underway.
Pricing: Bidding and Negotiation
Napa Design Partners will offer referrals for trusted construction contractors whom they have worked with successfully in the past. The client can then review detailed bids to decide which company should perform the job.
To ensure a seamless transition from plan to execution, the Napa Design Partner architect will perform regular site visits to oversee progress, ensure compliance, maintain control over the outcome, and answer questions that may arise.
Napa Design Partners’ continuing oversight eliminates the confusion that sometimes occurs when translating complex plans from the designer to the construction crew.
