Startup Meeting

The project startup meeting is the first phase of the design process and typically takes from 4 to 8 hours.  This meeting is where a discussion of the client’s program takes place, the service contract is reviewed and signed, and a deposit is obtained in order to begin services.


An important part of this meeting is the 18 page project program questionnaire which reviews in detail many of the design decisions which need to be made by the client.  These decisions range from what type of exterior finishes are desired, to how many shower heads should be in the master bath shower, to what type of insulation is to be used, and much much more.  


Warren reviews the questionnaire in person during this meeting so that he can ask questions that arise during this discussion and so that he can answer any questions the client(s) may have.  This questionnaire is an important part of the process and is utilized to assure that the client’s wants and needs for the design are understood by Warren and incorporated into the design.


In addition to the questionnaire, Warren also reviews with the client any sketches and photos which they have created or gathered in order to help explain their wants and needs.
