Permit Ready Accessory Dwelling Units


The overall concept for these four units is that the ADU can expand overtime. As many homeowners are limited on budget these designs provide a way to start small and add on as time and finances allow.

The primary infrastructure is laid out in the studio plan which includes all the necessary plumbing, utilities, structural openings, and core living components for all the proposed ADUs.

When starting with the studio design as a “base plan” the homeowner can have the flexibility to expand the design when they are ready without a large expense. Any addition to the plan has minimal change to the plumbing and is primarily wood frame construction for additional bedrooms.

Tenant design build


As part of the design build team we assisted the owner and contractor in completing the construction of the new building shell. Through our construction support services we gained an understanding of the building's unique infrastructure and have applied this knowledge to the creation of 21 tenant spaces. Our current role is to work with the tenant to design and process permits for their future space. NBC Sports, Mitsubishi, St Archer Brewery, New American Funding and many other corporate offices now call Quail Garden Corporate Center their home.
