Timing – When to Hire Cornerstone

Starting early with Cornerstone not only ensures the highest ROI, but that you get the building you want.

By engaging Cornerstone during the design phase of your new construction or renovation projects, we are able to glean the most valuable insights shared during envisioning and planning.

We leverage the knowledge gained in the early phases of the process to assist owners in making informed decisions as to, for instance, the size of mechanical and electrical systems. Correctly navigating the decision process during design often greatly reduces the operating costs of the building.
