Project Inception

With any project, it's hard to think of a more important step than the planning phases. It's during this crucial period that a project starts to take form, where the budget is solidified and you can start to see your vision unfolding in front of you.

Schematic Design

When working with an architect, the first step is to meet with them and discuss your vision for the project. With Tactics Studio, this step involves an exploration of your goals and needs for the building, two essential factors in determining.

Design Development

As the architectural process continues to move forward, our team will start developing concise designs for your project. It is during this phase that your vision will truly start to come to life, as we produce more detailed renderings of the building.

Construction Documents

Once the schematic designs have been fully developed, and the client is satisfied with how things are progressing, Tactics Studio moves on to the next phase, the creation of construction documents.

Construction Bid

Has an influx of general contractors returned with a wide range of high and overpriced bids for your construction project in San Francisco or other area? If so, Tactics Studio architects are available to help you manage the construction bids.

Architectural Documents

Feasibility Studies

Designing a building is an exciting undertaking, but there are a number of practical things that must come before the construction phase actually begins. Before you dive in and start planning how you're going to furnish your future home or office, performing a feasibility study is in order.

Site Selection

Site selection is one of the most exciting phases in an architectural project, because it involves the scouting of locations and the decision of where to construct a building.

Building Construction Audit

Whether you're a homeowner or a business owner, being aware of your building's condition is hugely important. A building condition audit is a powerful tool that can be used to draw attention to any structural issues, as well as help guide the company making repairs.

Multiple Contract Preparation

From the contract signed between the architect and the client, to the one between the client and the construction company, these documents are essential in maintaining a consistent vision for the project.

Bidding & Negotiations

Once the design of your future building is completed, the hunt begins for the best company in San Fransisco and surrounding area to handle the construction.

Construction Administration
