We speak the language
Because so much information on your project is communicated using 2-D drawings (Plans) there are many conventions on how plans, sections, and elevations are interpreted. Your project revolves around translating those plans into a 3-D construction using building materials. There can be a misinterpretation of those drawings, which can give rise to confusion about how building elements go together, especially if the drawings show something that the contractor might not be familiar with, or if the contractor is too busy and overlooks the drawings or specific details of them. A design and build firm knows how to stay on top of this since they have carefully designed and drawn each plan themselves and have communicated this information to each team member.
From your home or away from home smart technology allows you to stay in touch with all aspects of your home’s environment. It enables you to control systems and electronics remotely with the ease of a smartphone or other web device and communicate with each system. Whether it’s your security system, lighting, home temperature even your appliances, smart technology provides comfort and convenience, and can enhance energy efficiency.
Sustainable Design is the process of being environmentally responsible and resource efficient throughout a building’s lifetime. The process can begin as early as choosing the site, to planning the design, construction and even the operations of buildings. There are several considerations: Energy use, water use, indoor environmental quality, material selection and the building’s effects on its site and its inhabitants. Human nature design can help you to build a home that works with your level of environmental consciousness and interest. We strive to educate ourselves with the most current sustainable resources to pass on to our clients.
