Will you meet with me evenings or weekends?
Evenings and weekends are best spent with family and friends, so we do our best to avoid circumstances where you or we have to conduct business during those times.
Will you come to my office or home to meet?
We ask that our first meeting be conducted in our offices, where we have the tools and resources to fully explain our services. After the initial visit, we’re flexible.
Are there any other trades/people I need to hire?
Yes. You’ll have to hire a general contractor and communications vendor. You’ll also have to consider furniture procurement and movers.
Can I act as my own general contractor?
Unless general contracting is your professional trade, we’d say no.
Do you submit my drawings to the city for me?
Yes, it’s generally included in the project scope.
Do I need more than one restroom?
The number of required restrooms depends on occupancy. If there are more than 15 employees, restrooms are required for both genders.
