EBI prepared a Schematic Design Package (SDP) in support of the approved Existing Conditions Survey. Existing AutoCAD files were used to perform the existing condition verification survey of the new tenant space. Any code compliance issues or deviations from the existing conditions were utilized for design and concept development. They were also reflected by updating the SDP with the new design and appearance recommendations. All elements of the SDP were reviewed against landlord, local, state and federal codes and requirements to ensure conformance.
The new design concept included a defined appearance of the space including walls, flooring, ceilings, millwork and all finishes. Architectural systems, furniture, fixtures and equipment were also included into the design concept to define the scope, character and functionality of the space.
Following the approval of the design development package, EBI prepared permit drawings and submitted the drawings to the Building and Safety and Health Departments. This included ADA details, floor plans, power plans, finish plans, schedules and mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) specifications. We managed the building permit process including the coordination of plan sheets, applications and follow-ups to address any comments. We also performed regular construction administration in support of the approved construction drawings. This included onsite inspections, review of construction schedule, project goals, milestones and deadlines in conjunction with the property manager, and assistance in acquiring the certificate of occupancy.
