Oasis Renovations is dedicated to providing our clients with finely detailed projects that reflect our commitment to superior design.
Design/Build is the process by which a single entity provides both the design and construction, thus giving you greater control over the cost of your renovation since design, estimating and construction are seamlessly combined. The ongoing working relationship between designer and construction team allows us to problem-solve quickly when renovation complexities arise. Noel Windfeld’s 35 years of experience in design and construction mean that he and his team can identify the most appropriate technical solutions to difficult design problems in a timely and efficient manner.
The design/build process has four phases:
- In the first phase, we document the existing property and building conditions and identify zoning bylaw and building code issues that can shape the design process and affect the design proposals.
- The preliminary design phase begins with our visit to the site to measure and photograph the house and to produce drawings of the existing building. We then present you with a design scheme for your project, based on your wishes, needs, and realities.
- The design development phase is to refine the design in more detail. We make plans, elevations and sketches to represent a finished idea reflecting your desires. We begin discussions with consultants to integrate electrical, mechanical and plumbing systems into the design.
- In the last phase we resolve construction details and add final dimensions and notes pertaining to the BC Building Code. You approve these drawings and they are submitted to the Building Inspection Office. Once we receive the building permit, we begin construction. During construction, the material selection and detailing continue to be refined based on the conditions we find on-site and any changes you requested.
