  • If you do not have your own plans, we will provide you with an estimate to develop concept designs for your vision and a preliminary cost proposal.

PRELIMINARY 

COSTINGS

  • At this stage, we will present to you the concept drawings and discuss any feedback that you have. Included with the concept designs will be preliminary specifications that can also be modified to suit.

 

  • You will also receive a Preliminary Cost Proposal based on the concept designs presented and the specifications discussed.
