Building orientation (siteing) is important for visibility and for the potential of using solar energy for passive (lighting, energy storage and conservation) and active uses (solar photovoltaics).  Vehicular access and respect for existing conditions, such as vegetation and topography are critically important for the success of your project.

In Massachusetts, certifications may be required both before and after construction.  These certifications attest to the fact that the building is designed according to the current ICC and state building codes. These certifications can be required for both obtaining a building permit, and for obtaining an occupancy permit post construction.

Building cost estimating and cost control and are essential for home owners and/or developers to understand the cost effects of a proposed project. The use of Design alternatives is a method to test cost and aesthetics of various differing approaches to meeting an owner’s objectives.  These alternatives can be related to space planning, and the use of various levels of material quality. Sometimes, or perhaps usually, a building design process is essentially one facet of an owner’s big-picture feasibility study - to understand the effect a project has on the ROI, or business plan in general, or in the case of the homeowner, simply bottom-line cost.

Construction Documents constitute the plans, details, and specifications that make up the bidding and permitting documents.  Included on larger projects are Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing/and Fire Protection drawings, details and specifications prepared by consulting engineers, and coordinated within the overall bid document package.
