    Red Hawk restaurant, near the UM campus in Ann Arbor, MI, opened in 1992. Cornerstone Design designed this project, which included renovations for the main floor dining room and kitchen, the basement prep kitchen, and a new historically sensitive façade.
    Design:
    We will turn your program requirements into a design for a building or space that meets your needs and budget
  • Construction Documentation: We will develop your design into drawings and specifications that a contractor can use to prepare a bid, submit for building permits, and do construction.
  • Bidding: We will locate contractors qualified to bid on your project, coordinate the bidding process, answer questions as needed, and help you with final contract negotiations.
  • Contract Administration: We will make periodic site visits during construction, review submittals, certify contractor payments, and review contract changes to be sure your interests are well-represented during this most crucial phase of the project.

OPTIONAL SERVICES INCLUDE:

  • Programming: Careful programming is the foundation for cost-effective design. We will assist you in determining your spatial needs, including sizes and relationships of various spaces, and other information needed to begin design.
  • Site Selection: We can help you evaluate potential sites for your project by telling you what issues may affect a site, what size of building the site can support, and what extra costs you might face. By involving us early in the site selection, we can help you avoid costly mistakes.
  • Site Planning: Most local jurisdictions require site plans for any site modifications, including building additions. In some circumstances, we can prepare the site plans ourselves; sometimes we will coordinate civil engineering and landscape design consultants doing the design work.
  • Accessibility Evaluations: We are well-versed in accessibility requirements under both state and federal law, and can help you determine what changes you need to make to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act and other laws.
  • Cost Estimates: We can provide estimates of construction costs at various stages throughout the design and documentation phases, to assist you in budget planning.
