Our Process

Entablature embraces the design-build approach and encourages prospective clients to contact us as early in the planning stages as possible. Ideally, we like to work collaboratively with a project's owner and designer from the inception of the project in order to value-engineer the project and help owners achieve the best possible results within their desired budgets. We do understand, however, that some projects do not lend themselves to this type of process, and we welcome prospective clients to contact us even when they already have their plans complete.
