The Design Process- What to Know

SCGWest is the leader in the development, site selection and design-build of retail, restaurants, and medical offices across the U.S. Furthermore, we wanted to educate you on the design process outlined below.

  1. Due Diligence
    • Identify the owner’s vision, schedule and scope and project team.
    • Identify information on special local codes, Health Department guidelines, Zoning and Landlord requirements.
  2. Visioning
    • This is where we address the vision of the brand and store layout and experience as well as challenges of the potential tenant space.
  3. Schematic Design
    • Upon completion of visioning, we will work with the client or owner to confirm that all programming, space planning, and space requirements have been met and are code compliant.
  4. Design Development
    • Taking the Schematic design and layouts a step further in the refinement process.
    • Create Elevation drawings and initial engineering layouts
    • The major areas that need designed include:
      • Entry and Waiting Area
      • Dining Room
      • Bar or Lounge
      • Walk-up Service or Take Out Counter
      • Restrooms (ADA Compliant)
      • Kitchen
      • Hostess and Wait Stations
      • Ample Aisle and Circulation Space
      • Dry and Refrigerated Storage
      • Office and Employee Amenities
      • Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing Engineering systems
  1. Construction Documents
    • At this stage, we are able to refine the budgets and provide firm construction costs for the build-out.
  2. Municipality Interface
    • Upon completion of the Construction Documents phase, SCGWest will submit to the City Building and Health Departments for approvals in order to move forward and start construction on your project!
