Process

Documentation

An architect produces very detailed floor plans in order to turn an idea into a buildable home. Much collaboration is needed between the architect and client to ensure that the end result is what was envisioned. Likewise, your home's technology systems need to be designed and documented well in advance of actual construction.

Discussing your audio/video, home automation, network, lighting, motorized shades / drapery and security needs with Coastal Homeworks early in the home design phase results in necessary coordination between your architect, interior designer, builder, and all affected subcontractors. Early coordination also prevents unnecessary costly change orders, and the end result is a smoother construction process and greatly improved aesthetics. A vital element to proper audio video system implementation is Coastal Homeworks low voltage documentation. We speak the language of your design team, and that language is detailed documentation and floor plans. The initial plans specify all the build requirements that your architect, general contractor, and interior designer need to know. Our planning documentation includes electrical requirements, HVAC requirements, device placement, equipment space planning, home theater sightlines and riser heights/dimensions, video display niche requirements, and more. Early planning ensures that there are no surprises that result in additional costs and/or a compromised end result. Proper documentation also aides service calls that may be needed down the road. The next step in this process is Project Management. To see all of the steps in Coastal Homeworks process from concept to completion, click the 'Systems' link in the navigation menu.
