Master Planning / Design
Master planning is one of the most cost-effective services we provide. Applying our knowledge and experience to irrigation project planning we can save you money, time, and headaches as your project progresses.
We consider your capital and maintenance budgets, water resources, growth of the landscape, available time for construction, contractor availability, manufacturers and distributors of irrigation hardware, permitting processes, etc.
Our master plan explains all of the steps and expected costs, allowing you to make informed decisions about project funding and phasing. Part of the Master Plan is the conceptual design of your irrigation/pumping system which assists you in making development decisions.
The Master Plan typically takes the form of a schematic level drawing accompanied by a written narrative in which we discuss the proposed solutions, construction sequencing, and cost estimates.
The Master Plan frequently serves as the starting point for development of design and construction documents. A key to our success and our clients’ satisfaction with our product is regular and frequent communication with the client. Construction documents are the culmination of schematic level and design development drawings, but we don’t necessarily hold to a fixed schedule of deliverables. We try to be sure that we are meeting our clients’ needs throughout the design process. The final product is a set of site plans, detail drawings, and written specifications that may be used to solicit construction bids and build the project.
