We understand that our clients are uniquely different, each with their own set of criteria for creating a new or renovated environment. A master plan enables the owner to explore the feasibility of improving an existing building against relocating or constructing new facilities to support the user programs and needs. We start the process by developing an understanding of our clients' goals, along with the building's program functions, existing conditions, adjacency issues, and other key elements. Foreseeable future needs are identified, such as evolving functions, populations, technologies, and codes.
Friar Associates offers a proven ability to cover a diverse range of topics and presentation styles to suit various audiences and gain the necessary approvals. Following an extensive fact-finding objective, we develop materials that include descriptions of existing conditions / systems, photographic documentation, existing condition plans, proposed schematics, detailed estimates of probable costs, and sample timelines.
