Lizardos’ Specialized Professional Services

Planning | Facility Assessment | Building Design

Lizardos begins most projects with an existing condition analysis whether it’s a small renovation or a multi-million dollar new construction. We encourage our clients to provide a vision of their needs and what they hope to accomplish well before schematics begin.  Effective and clear communication is regarded as essential from the start. Our staff will work closely with the clients to prepare a comprehensive facility condition analysis with recommendations in order to begin a schematic design or as in the case when performing a Master Plan, provide an inclusive outline of the means and methods of our work scope. Because schedule and budgets are always of concern, we provide periodic cost estimates and schedule updates throughout the length of the project. Lizardos experience includes:

  • Master Planning
  • Facility Condition Analysis
  • Schematic Design
  • Construction Documents
  • Feasibility Studies
  • Cost Estimates
  • Life Cycle Studies
