List of Services
Stirling Architects, Inc. follows a dedicated work process with the objective of ensuring that your project is planned, organized, and executed efficiently.
At the beginning of a project, we will establish the goals, scope, budget, schedule, and initial code and zone check.
After in-depth interviews with the client and other involved groups, we compile a detailed description of space needs, space sizes, spatial relationships, furnishings and equipment, public and private needs, and other information relevant to the project.
We analyze the site as it pertains to the needs of the client. This includes analyzing views, access, sun, shade, circulation, zoning constraints, context, and other factors that affect the site and its use.
We prepare several schemes showing different possible solutions that meet the requirements of both the client and the site analysis. Once a preferred scheme is selected, we begin the regulatory approval process and obtain a preliminary cost estimate.
We prepare detailed drawings that further define the building and its’ materials. We begin investigating preliminary construction methods, and determine the initial consultant coordination and scope of work to finalize the overall design.
Planning Submittal & Coordination
We produce and coordinate all necessary drawings and documents for planning commission hearings, design review, or city council meetings.
We prepare all necessary drawings needed to enable the client to obtain permits and cost. These drawings enable the contractor to build the client’s project.

At the owner’s request, we provide construction monitoring for design conformance, advise on payments to the contractor, answer construction questions, and assist in conflict resolution.
