Grand Hill design results from a true collaboration between architect and owner. We begin with our clients' visions and then translate them into refined architectural concepts through an exceptionally personalized design process.
The results are not only are responsive to their owners' needs, but also exceed their expectations with the highest standard of architectural design. In our projects we strive for the optimum use of materials, architectural forms, space and light to create architecture that will contribute to and fit seamlessly into its surroundings.
Drawing from an architectural vocabulary that is uniquely our own, we design as individual as each of our clients.
DESIGN-BUILD IS A PROCESS
Grand Hill Development in Vancouver specializes in the Design and Build process.
The steps through this process are briefly outlined as below.
CONSULTATIONAt first contact, we would discuss basic project feasibility and schedule an initial meeting for a general introduction of budget range.
PRE DESIGN PHASE
If the project is feasible with regard to budget and existing conditions, we will draft and present the Design Phase only contract and after acceptance we will progress with implementation.
At the completion of the Design Phase agreement, you will have:
•Completed design drawings
•Detailed Project Specifications
•The Construction Phase Fixed Price Proposal Contract
POST DESIGN PHASE
After the completion of the Design Phase you may:
•Retain all documents and take no further action.
•Decide to accept the contract for construction and proceed to the construction phase.
•Grand Hill Development will produce the final permit drawings, provide Engineering review, apply for all necessary permits and schedule the starting and completion dates.
Upon acceptance of the Contract for Construction, the total cost of the Design / Build agreement will be applied to the total cost of construction.
