The PlanForce Design Process
At PlanForce, we’re passionate about solving our clients’ most challenging real estate problems and guided by the belief that design can powerfully influence the function of a workspace and the success of a business. We keep people at the center of our work, utilizing design to positively impact the users of the environments we create. It’s a key tenet behind all of our projects. Even as the industry and technologies evolve in response to new, complex challenges, we’re always designing solutions for people first.
HOW WE THINK AND WORK
Investigate: The key to maximizing the efficiency of your real estate investment is to understand how your firm works. We take the time to understand your objectives and budget. We take pains to understand how your business works before we design — so the design works for your business.
Create: Our team digs into your unique business challenges and develops creative solutions that push the boundaries of what you thought possible, even as they fulfill your brand vision. Our designs delight the senses while helping your business function more effectively. Together, we will design a space to be proud of that meets the needs of your business, budget, and timeline.
Integrate: Following approval of preliminary planning, budgets, and lease agreements, PlanForce develops construction documents (CDs) for use in bidding, permit applications, and construction. CDs are fully detailed and closely coordinate with the project team.
Build: Once the plans are complete, we help you handle the entire construction administration process. Depending on the requirements of your project, we will help assemble the materials needed to obtain requisite approvals and permits for the work to be done. We will also help you through the bidding process and answer questions posed by contractors as they generate bids for the construction of your project. As projects move forward, new challenges often emerge. We build in flexibility and room for change as part of our designs, while respecting the established budget and timeline. So our environments can keep up with the pace of business.
Whatever your needs and business objectives, the staff of PlanForce blends creative design solutions with technical expertise to make your project stand out. From existing building reviews through design, documents, permitting, and construction administration, our staff works as an extension of yourbusiness strategy. The result is a working environment that enhances the value of your property and differentiates you from your competition.
At PlanForce we listen, we question, and we learn — before we design.
