ECHO PROJECTS THAT BUILD STRONG COMMUNITIES

OUR PROCESS

DESIGNING SOLUTIONS FOR ANY CHALLENGE

/ THE ECHO PROCESS

Our top priority is to create partnerships and build trust with clients before we begin development. This begins with our initial discovery meeting in which we discuss the client’s timeline, wants and needs, build options, and overall design vision. We then enter the planning and execution phase where we draw up floor plans and create 2D renderings for review. After that begins the construction phase, where we implement the Echo Building Standard, and manage the entire process from the first shovel to the final trim piece.
