  • Preliminary Technical Review

  • Preliminary Budget

  • Project Estimating

  • Value Engineering

  • General Project Oversight & Consulting

  • Design Completion Services

 

Preliminary Technical Review

an initial project evaluation...

  • Can the project be estimated?  

  • Can it be built?  

 

Having finalized plans that answer these questions is essential....do the plans have sufficient detail... elevations, existing conditions, specified fixtures, finishes, treatments, appliances, custom fabrications, lighting and irrigation?

For Rock & Rose Landscapes design clients, projects needing further detail or development is a simple internal process of communication and collaboration between Rock & Rose Designers and Estimators, but for external or unassociated project requests the discovery of the need for more information will require additional design and/or project planning input.

 

Whatever the missing detail, one can always return to the original design source to fulfill the missing element(s) with our recommendations; or choose to engage our Design or Project Consultation Services to complete or further develop a project plan that is both estimatable, and buildable.

Included in Full-Cycle Design; Free to prior & existing clients, associated professionals, and unassociated project requests

Preliminary Estimated Budget

early numbers for planning and decision making

Knowing the potential cost at the conceptual stage of any project design is ideal.  It gives project owners and decision makers early and broad insights for consideration; directional control of a project's design; and enabling decisive choices on whether to stay the course, adjust the plan, or change directions completely.

Project Estimate

the official pivot from design to build

Attaining an estimated cost to build and install a finalized plan or design with a reputable builder is a seminal moment for every project. 

We provide construction estimates and bid proposals to homeowners, designers, general contractors, and authorized decision makers who present us with complete and finalized project documentation.  It's important that any request for estimate comes with buildable plans including elevations and existing conditions, as well as any specified fixtures, finishes, treatments, appliances, custom fabrications, lighting, irrigation and more. 

 

The goal is to deliver an estimate that is as comprehensive and accurate as possible, establishing trustworthy and realistic expectations -- solid ground on which to pivot from design to build.
