1
Introduction Meeting
This first conversation begins with us listening to your requests and requirements to get a better understanding of how we can help you with your custom build or renovation project. We then help you understand the process involved with designing a home and explain our service offering.

Design and Programming Consultation
After the introduction meeting we will work with you more closely to identify your needs, expectations and desires. We will determine space requirements, design preferences, and explore your current landscape surroundings to ensure the design options and ideas we present will speak to your personal desires. Our team will also help you establish a timeline, budget and other preliminary details that will ensure the projects stays on track.

Sketch Development
Ampersand Home Design’s design team will then develop a series of initial sketches that are unique to your property and give you a visual concept of your options. You can then review and revise your vision for your home accordingly.

Design Development
Once you have chosen a design, Ampersand Home  Designs creates detailed sketches, develops a 3D virtual model and detailed drawings to refine the design. Once we have your approval, we formalize the building dimensions to ensure all the design needs can be achieved.

Construction Documents Preparation
At the contract document preparation phase, we will finalize the technical issues and develop the construction and permit drawing set. Ampersand Home Designs can also coordinate all consultant’s drawings such as Structural, Site Survey and Mechanical & Electrical drawings to help you obtain all necessary permits.

Finding the right Contractor
Ampersand Home Designs is a full service architectural firm that has years of experience with the design-bid-build process.  We can work with your builder, connect you with our network of qualified builders, or prepare a tender package for contractors to bid on. Once you choose your builder, our Project Management team can then assist in developing an overall construction schedule and help manage all timelines and approvals.

This is one of the final steps in ensuring your home is built  on time, on budget and with excellence. Our designers and architects will work closely with your contractor to ensure the integrity of the design standards set out in the plans and specifications are honoured.
