Phase I Conceptual Design
We believe that renovations and additions to homes should have a
seamless flow in both function and appearance. Rooms should relate
to each other because after all, form follows function. Our projects
must look right and feel right so that they enhance the lifestyle
of the owners and their families.
All construction projects face the challenge of creatively and cost-effectively
achieving the objectives of the owner. A creative concept is not
complete unless it is financially feasible. So our first step is
Phase I Conceptual Design which provides the minimum level of plans
and drawings necessary to determine the viability of the project
and establish accurate project costs with a guarantee of no change
orders, except for ones originating from a client.
With the latest in computer-aided design (CAD) techniques and equipment,
our design professionals will prepare a set of to-scale plans. These
plans will clearly communicate information regarding the size, shape
and functional characteristics of the project including information
about zoning, yard setbacks, building codes, electrical, plumbing
and air conditioning capacity.
We also determine a realistic timetable for the project. And finally,
we produce a 20 category, item-by-item cost breakdown for the project
based on real information.
Design Detail & Selection
This represents the final design stage and includes all the detail
information for workmen to proceed with the project. Here the owner
finalizes all selections such as plumbing fixtures, electrical fixtures,
doors, windows and flooring.
The Turnage Company also takes care of all government permitting
for zoning, life safety codes, engineering, wind loading, landscaping,
drainage and environmental issues.
This is the stage where the dream starts to be assembled. Clients
will clearly see why we say, we love what we do and it shows.
So much so that many of our clients have hired us for multiple projects.
Even though your project may be complete, were still here
to assist. We are always available for maintenance, repair or even
Because of our commitment to clients, were frequently called
upon for referrals or advice about a myriad of home issues such
as drainage, roofing, moisture, painting or small project repair.
We are able to make referrals or even assist in making these projects,
that can be the bane of homeownership, disappear.
