free site evaluation for a garage suite in calgary
STEP ONE

Free Site Evaluation

Our project managers will visit your property to check the lot and utilities. You’ll have the opportunity to ask them questions while they evaluate the possibility of a backyard suite being built on your property.

STEP TWO

Project Discussion

We collect information about a potential backyard suite for your property such as desired design, finishings, budget and all other important details. We provide you with recommendations on what garage suite may be good for your property based off our standard plans in accordance with your requests thus far as well as the information gathered from our site evaluation. If you want a fully custom design that doesn’t look anything like our standard plans, we can do that too!

STEP THREE

Proposal Phase

We send you a proposal for your garage suite project. This document guarantees your requests are included and highlights a rough cost estimate for your project. Once signed and an initial deposit has been made, we move forward with designing a black line floor plan and 3D renderings as part of your development permit package.

STEP FOUR

Design Phase

Our architectural manager works closely with you to design a backyard suite based on the proposal document’s details. Each design consultation session will include any further requests you have relative to the floor plan and exterior elevation. This is an iterative process which ensures you’re completely satisfied with the design specs – confirmed with your signature after each design meeting – before moving ahead to apply for permits.

STEP FIVE

Construction Consultation

We present you with a sheet detailing our standard specifications. If any upgrades are made to the standard specs, we combine them with the final architectural design-build package to accurately price your garage suite project. If no major changes have been made to the package outside of your initial requests,, this should fall within our original rough cost estimate for your project. Construction consultation is an on-going process throughout the permitting stages as well.

STEP SIX

Development Permit

Once you have signed off on the final design package, we submit your plans to the city for a development permit (DP). This can anywhere from three to five months or more to receive back. If your DP requires any changes to the design for approval, we guarantee to make these for you free of charge as part of our all-inclusive service.

STEP SEVEN

Building Permit

Once your development permit is approved, we move forward with applying for a building permit (BP). Our architectural designer team will draw a building permit package in preparation for construction. This can take anywhere from two to four weeks or more to receive back from the city.

STEP EIGHT

Construction Phase

Now comes the fun part! Watching your backyard suite come to life will take anywhere from three to six months depending on existing site challenges and weather conditions. We will do our absolute best to accommodate your needs during this time as we will be consistently working on your property.
