Pre-design

During the pre-design stage, our architects begin by gathering and reviewing background information on the property/site such as; certification of title, drainage, zoning and town plans. The information gathered at this stage is highly important and will impact the design in numerous ways. The Kaizon Architecture team can ascertain this information on behalf of the client, or assist the client as they require.
