MANAGEMENT PHILOSOPHY and APPROACH
Collaboration and Communication
RESPONSIVENESS TO PROJECT NEEDS
The Lage Design team is confident of our ability to meet the staffing needs for any project. We will provide a talented team of design professionals on which to rely for any project. We can draw upon the talents and experience of the six Nevada licensed Professional Landscape Architects, skilled graphic artists, and dedicated production specialists that we have assembled. This breadth of resources affords us the opportunity to be available to respond at a moment’s notice to any and all project needs.
BUDGETING, SCHEDULING, and
QUALITY ASSURANCE PROCESSES
The Lage Design team prides itself on providing a high level of responsiveness to our clients, ensuring that projects are accurate as well as delivered on-time and on-budget. Our experience has prepared us to rapidly, efficiently, and economically execute work. All of our projects have been completed on-time, on-budget and without costly change orders. We have accomplished this through a process of constantly monitoring, and updating, both budgets and schedules, as our projects progress. This coupled with our commitment to communication ensure that there are no surprises when projects are advertised for bid.
Delivering a project free from costly errors-and-omissions is one of the cornerstones of the Lage Design philosophy. Each team member is charged with ensuring that every project meets the highest quality standards. As part of our commitment to Quality Assurance (QA), we will develop a Quality Control Plan and assign a dedicated Design Quality Manager for each project. The design review process will include Quality Control (QC) reviews by both the Project Manager as well as an independent review by a Professional Landscape Architect.
