for the site and the interior of the building. After the codes research has been completed, I continue to
determine the feasibility of the project: Ratios between parking and building s.f. and other requirements as
per the clients’ needs. After my diligence is finished: I request an approval from the client. During this, I
prpare a CSI format Divisions Division (1) (General) through Division (16) (Electrical), to determine the
“Cost Effectiveness Cost Proposal” called ,”Proforma” that includes: Municipality fees, A&E fees, (soft
and hard cost) that would determine the Preliminary budget for the project; as a result, of this format I have
determine the feasibilities for the following types of projects: Residential, Commercial, DSA and OSHPD
projects. In the same manner using the CSI format I have determine Specification and the Project Schedule
called “Critical Line Path” to determine Milestones for project and it’s dead lines, for all team members.

all types all consultants and for all types of projects (as mentioned above) during: Design Phase,
Construction Document Phase; in addition, during this time I have been able to submit the deliverables in a
timely manner as a result of a tight schedule. As soon as the Municipalities has determined plan check
corrections needed, I have been able to complete and coordinate the project with consultants in a timely
manner so the permit can be issued.
