Understanding the Design and Construction Process workshop

Thinking about starting a building project but don't know how or where to begin?

Local architect Michael Huber and general contractor Jay Cates will demystify the process of design and construction. The seminar will walk through a typical project, explaining each step from initial idea to move in day. They will present an overview of evaluating site issues, project scope and budgeting. Other topics will include building code, city and agency reviews, bidding, timelines and other available resources.

Planning and constructing a building project should be exiting and not stressful. Understanding the relationships and processes between the homeowner, architect and contractor will help in creating a successful project.
