Full range of Architectural Services, in 5 phase: Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documents, Bidding & Negotiations, and Construction Administration. The work in these phases starts with programming the project, and guiding it through the approvals and permitting process. It includes designing plans, specifying all equipment, appliances, lighting, plumbing fixtures, cabinetry and all finish materials. Once designed DCA brings the project through bidding process with General Contractors, and then attends to the project throughout construction, and any post construction follow-up required.
