Design/Build

Our company can provide complete design/build services including conceptual drawings, shop drawings, engineering, and construction.  We work with Individual property owners, Architects, Landscape Architects, Designers, Contractors, and Developers, and can provide assistance at any stage of a project, including help with initial proposals.  Or where applicable, we can provide sails custom fabricated to your design specifications.

Sails can often be attached to existing structures or “hard points” can be engineered into a buildings prior to construction.  Where this is impossible or undesirable, steel, concrete, or wood columns can be used as supports. Additionally, we have designed several brackets and methods for attaching sails to accommodate nearly any situation, and we can fabricate and install steel columns as needed.

Pricing for large commercial projects start at about $22 per sq. ft and probably averages about $28 per sq. ft. A backyard patio comes in about $4,500.
