This is how we do it.

We want to know you.

Do you know exactly what you want? Do you think you know what you want but could use a little guidance? Consultation services can be provided before project development occurs in an effort to determine the viability of a project, or we can provide them while projects are underway. When consultation is provided during the implementation of a project, these services become part of our Construction Management process.

Analysis and direction—we'll call it a draw.

The schematic design phase starts with an Initial Program Meeting and Site Analysis to examine existing conditions of your property. Thereafter we will develop initial schematic drawings that will serve as a base for further design development. The drawings will include information such as grading and sizing of specific elements and features. This part of the process allows us to develop preliminary budgets based on the anticipated costs of the various elements and features. You may request budget-driven revisions to the schematic design. Once these additional revisions have been completed the schematic design phase will be finalized and considered complete.

Drafting and detailing.

We will draft a complete set of construction documents that provide necessary construction information for all contractors involved in the project. The construction documents may contain the following plans and items:

  • Preservation and Demolition Plan
  • Layout and Materials Plan
  • Grading and Drainage Plan
  • Construction Details and Specifications
  • Planting Plan
  • Accoutrement and Furniture Layout
  • Exterior Lighting Plan
  • Irrigation Plan
  • Architectural Renderings
  • Engineering Documentation and Plans


Collaboration & Coordination
We will coordinate the construction drawing development with additional consultants such as Architects and Surveyors, Structural or Geo-Technical Engineers, Lighting and Irrigation Specialists, and Pool and Pond Specialists.


We can submit construction drawings to municipal building departments to obtain building permits as the project requires. The duration of the submittal process can vary between building departments and the submittal requirements and review process.

One, both, or all of the above. It's your call.

Stride Studios is prepared to provide consulting, project management and/or general contracting services depending on the scope and size of the project. We do it all, but are happy to provide only what you need.
