In order to begin the design/build process, we will provide you with a comprehensive Questionnaire to help you organize your thoughts. Your responses will acquaint us with your goals, style, and budget. This feedback will help us to conceptualize an environment truly tailored to your specific needs and lifestyle. To receive your copy, please contact us at 301-249-9000 or by email to Petro Design/Build Group.
2. Initial Consultation
After we receive your completed Questionnaire, we will schedule an initial consultation on site to review your goals for the project and discuss budgetary requirements. There will be a nominal fee for this first meeting.
3. Design Contract
Once the scope of the project has been determined, a design contract will be prepared detailing the area(s) of the project with a fee schedule.
4. Site Analysis and Preliminary Design
The site analysis is a detailed study of the property's existing features including land formations, structures, plants to be retained or removed, and drainage considerations. This analysis is essential in order to develop a preliminary design. (We ask that you provide us with a property plat, a grading plan, and a house floor plan, if available.) Information gathered through this site analysis will be incorporated into a preliminary design along with an estimated budget for each phase of the project.
5. Final Design
The master design will incorporate additional information and details such as construction materials. It will also include a planting plan with specifications.
Once the final design has been completed and priced accordingly, installation can begin. Each projects installation is tailored to meet the clients’ schedule and may be completed in phases. During the installation there will be on-going project meetings and a detailed photo CD will be compiled for an historical reference of your project from start to finish.
