We listen to our clients!

At Vulkan, we're inspired to create the perfect balance between your life, necessity, economic prosperity, and the climate.

 

Designing a space is a great deal more than translating ideas into floor plans and building elevations. It requires being good listeners and gaining a clear understanding of what a client really wants. Each detail is selected to harmonize with every element, creating lasting designs that match our clients' objective.

FROM INCEPTION TO COMPLETION

SITE AND ZONING ANALYSIS    I    STRATEGY & PLANNING

​Whether an addition/remodel or new construction, analyzing the existing natural site, existing structures, local zoning codes and ordinances and neighboring characteristics for your project are critical. Our first step is an in depth analysis of the zoning and building requirements by applicable agencies or corporate brand standards.  We will filed verify all existing conditions and potential challenges.

 

DESIGN DEVELOPMENT  I  CONCEPT REALIZED

 

Just like each project, every client is unique. We stylize our design approach and presentations to each client so you have a clear understanding of our vision. In addition to traditional architectural drawings and sketches, we use 3D computer visualizations and Virtual Reality simulators so you can literally walk through your building prior to making any final design decisions. You can feel being at the doorsteps of your new home or office or luxury hotel suite.

CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS

 

Every detail matters. The goal is simple: provide a comprehensive set of design documents that capture every aspect of the project minimizing questions and change orders. We also offer in-house Interior Design and Landscape Design services for a fully coordinated result. We are well versed in coordinating approvals from all involved agencies, including Local & State Building Departments; Home Owner's Association, and California Coastal Commission.

 

PROJECT DELIVERY

 

Communication is key. We provide personalized service throughout the whole process, from initial design concepts to move in date and you will deal with the same people from start to finish. A successful project delivery is the result of having a clear and experienced design and construction team. We guide our clients through the contractor negotiation phase and seamlessly follow through with any oversights or cost mitigation options. We are there for every step of the way providing detailed walk throughs and regular site visits.
