Architectural Design & Documentation
PBA provides concept design, schematic design, design development and construction documents for many different types of projects including residential, commercial and institutional facilities, and programs. The firm's design and planning success requires that we intently listen to the client and users to discover their unique goals and perspectives and we creatively and sensitively address the client's specific needs.
PBA has extensive experience with space planning and interior design and will ensure a complete and properly documented Procurement Package: basis of design, FFE matrices, finish and color schedules, cutsheets and sample booklets, systems definitions, FFE and Finish plans, FFE/Material/Product Specifications, etc.
PBA has a high level of expertise on the laws, standards and guidelines mandated by the Americans with Disabilities Act and various state laws that also address accessibility. The architectural staff understands the intent of the legislation through thorough study of the preamble and the mechanics of its technical requirements as documented in the 1991 ADA Accessibility Guidelines and the 2010 ADA AccessibilityStandards.
Feasibility Studies & Master Planning
PBA provides analysis of facilities. Through a feasibility study, we can determine the practicability of a system or plan or multiple plans that will enable our client to make the best decision. Additionally, we are able to help our clients plan for their future. We help to develop a long-range plan that balances and harmonizes all elements. This can include building upgrades, multiple building renovations, and campus expansions.
We will continue to manage the client's project through construction. We see Construction Administration as a necessary, integral and even helpful part of the overall design process. Our Construction Administration services include the construction collaboration with client, including coordination of Commissioning services; problem resolution; database integrated submittal logs; and web-based RFIs, correspondence, and CO logs.
