Services offered by Design Source Studios:

When engaged in a project, Design Source Studios both organizes and co-ordinates all aspects of the design process. This includes planning, engineering, specifications, documents, etc. Over the course of our work in Southern California during the past ten years, we have provided a valuable service to our clients and continue to work with many of them on an ongoing basis.

Design Source Studios makes full use of the latest technology in the prepration of designs. All work is prepared using computer aided design techniques, which ensure accurate documentation. Computer aided techniques are also employed in 3-D electronic (virtual) modeling, which allows the client to view the project at an early stage, before production of construction documents. Traditional model making techniques are also employed as a complimentary tool for understanding and conveying the essence of a project.

We welcome your interest in our practice and would be pleased to attend any interviews to further discuss our qualifications.
