Preliminary Planning

SLI’s Architecture and Design Build process begins with preliminary planning. In this phase, we work with you to develop preliminary plans and cost estimates.


Meet with you to identify current/future staffing needs, adjacencies and equipment requirements

Prepare Preliminary Plans

  • Site Plans
  • Floor Plans
  • Furniture Layouts
  • Building Elevations
  • Computer Models

Develop a Scope of Work

Describes generic specifications including:

  • Utilities, Site Work, and Drainage
  • Building Construction
  • Interior Finish-out
  • Furnishings and Equipment

Prepare Cost Estimates

Detailed cost estimates will be prepared based on preliminary plans and the scope of work. We guarantee that our final cost proposal will be within 10% of the preliminary cost estimate.

The Result

A total concept that answers the questions

  • What will it look like?
