Remote Collaboration

The pandemic has taught us that having a strong understanding of the project, a laptop and good internet connection is more important than where you are located.

Our team has several years of experience working with remote clients and local engineers, providing a seamless transition between the two. We'll be able to provide clients with all the knowledge regarding building codes and regulations not just in Austin, but in the surrounding area.

For our out-of-state clients, we can offer our services completely remote. Everything, including Client and Contractor meetings, design submissions and final documents can be completed using web-based tools such as Mural, Google Meet, and email. We are pleased to offer this service, however we still prefer face-to-face interaction.

Grey Sofa
We are a team of creatives who love to collaborate. We use a variety of tools to communicate remotely too.
We're open to virtual meetings, texting, emails.. or just the causal check-in over the phone.
On occasion, it's best that we come to you so we discuss your vision. Our team can meet at your home, property or place of interest.
Confidential Clients

Over the recent years, more and more clients have asked to work in confidentially. This is becoming a new "norm" for high end clients transferring to the Austin area.

Our team is prepared to sign Non-Discloser Agreements (NDA) and other types of applications to protect our clients identities. Working with a small team makes this easy.

We also offer project management services for third party consultants, as in civil, structural, septic engineering.. to ensure projects remain confidential. For that reason, we will confirm that we have adequate fee and the expectations are understood before going into the project.


Please contact us for additional information and arrangements.
