design process it is our understanding that the key to a successful project is in getting personally involved in every aspect of the project and building a comfort level with our clients, where they can trust us to get the job done. our strength is in the way we approach each project. after initial meetings with the client we prepare a complete set of design drawings for the project and on basis of this we get quotations from our contractors and provide the client with a detailed estimate for every element in the project. this helps tackle a lot of cost related issues upfront and gives the client a better hold on the final cost of the project.our goal is to provide the client not only a beautiful end product but a good overall construction experience.
