Planning can be defined as an intellectual discipline of “systemic thinking” or the “art of programming.”
Planning is one of the most crucial steps in the successful development of a project, albeit hard to define. Each client’s perception of planning is distinctive and each project is unique in its need for application and planning. Designati assists the client in facilitating the realization and achievement of plans, whether it is the drawing up of an organized arrangement, establishing goals, policies and procedures or in making or carrying out the plans.
Designati offers the client in the planning phase of the project the following services:
- Adaptability and reuse
- Artistic renderings
- Budget development
- Code analysis and compliance
- Cost projection
- Land planning
- Master facility planning
- Master site planning
- Move Coordination
- Needs Analysis
- Site analysis and selection
- Space allocation
Designati provides professional services to suit the needs of the client.
We consult with and bring together a networked team of accomplished professionals to provide an integrated service for each project type. This methodology brings an expertise and involvement between the client and professional team to gain a complete understanding of the goals and needs.
The professional services normally provided to develop the plans and specifications for a project and then to administer the construction phase for that building project are organized into the following phases:
- Schematic Design
- Design Development
- Construction Documents
- Bid and Contract Negotiation
- Construction Administration
- Punch List and Warranties
Consultants included on the team may include structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering services. Civil engineering can also be included or accomplished directly under contract to the Owner. We believe it is important to discuss and identify the project needs of the client before selecting the appropriate consultants to be part of the team to accomplish the work on the project. In this way, our fee proposal includes the work of the consultants. Designati also offers complete in-house interior design services.
The client may also wish to have acoustics, landscaping, special outdoor lighting, asbestos assessment/abatement, interior furnishings or some other specific needs. Coordination of these services can be included if so desired.
Our interior design services complement and coordinate by phase the services listed in the architectural design.
We have registered interior designers on staff. We provide interior design consultants that specialize in the particular area or project type as needed or required by the Owner. On a typical project, Designati is responsible for identification and specification of all interior finishes. The integration of architecture and interior design are key to the success of each project. Having a concept and design that can be featured through all elements of space is a discipline that Designati finds stimulating.
Interior design services we provide:
- Accessories coordination
- Color coordination
- Furniture selection
- Graphic design
- Material selection
- Modular furnishings
- Move coordination
- Space planning
Specialized consulting or general consulting services are offered by Designati focused uniquely for the client. With our experience in and understanding of quality design, this provides an enhancement in meeting unique needs of a project type.

We offer a reputation with an emphasis on personal involvement. As a small firm, all projects are directly administered by one of our partners. Two of our partners are highly-specialized, health care architecture professionals. This provides our clients with personalized service and an attention to the needs and goals of each particular project. We have worked with clients of many sizes and have fostered successful long-term and repeat working relationships. Our smallest client has a handful of clients and our largest clients have employees in many states. We see ourselves as a part of the team, unified and understanding of what must be done for the client, the project and ultimately, the healing process for its patients.
There are many related facets of health care architecture. Health care has a changing regulatory environment, and health care facilities can be complex building types. Planning and design are central to the success of each institution and to the effective performance of the staff environment. Designati delivers services that provide value to our clients, their patients and the community. We design facilities that are suitable for their function, allow impeccable maintenance and demonstrate aesthetic thought in design. Our efforts are centered around creating an environment that allows our clients to provide accessible, high quality, seamless, and integrated care delivery for the improvement of health and the health care environment. Our offerings are for various project types, in addition to handling the design and documentation process based on various “fast-tracked” and “trade-packaged” documentation systems.

Designati builds churches that are building for the future.
Our attention is focused on the needs of our client, and our history allows us to draw on the experience of design of both small and large project types. We work in partnership with our clients, normally with a building committee, during each stage of the project. We provide fund raising assistance as we look at being economically responsible to the affairs of the church. Our desire is to create a design to serve the needs of a congregation, as well as being fully supportive of its future impact to the community. We want your vision to become your church of tomorrow. A well-designed religious facility is expandable in an orderly, logical way and leaves the client with a flexible, adaptable building that can be used for other purposes.
Our church design types range from traditional to contemporary and we have worked with many denominations and religious affiliations. The core of Designati’s sacred space services is to assist the church in the fulfillment of its mission. A well-designed building encourages friendship, allowing people the opportunity to interact and reinforce their values. It allows the spaces in and around the building to fulfill the purpose of celebrating in the experience of worship.
We assist the church in the following areas:
Making wise, informed decisions about the church building
Providing fund raising assistance
Bringing the facility to standards and compliance with codes
Guidance with audio/video equipment design and installation
Documents for bidding and construction
Zoning and variances
