Phase 2: Preliminary Design

Construction Design is the essential first step in bringing a set to life. In this critical phase, we transform creative concepts into actionable plans. Our team drafts detailed drawings, selects appropriate materials, builds physical models (when needed), and generates cost estimates. This collaborative process ensures that practical elements and budget limitations are considered alongside artistic goals, paving the way for a smooth transition to the construction and detailing stages.
