Site analysis is the study of the physical characteristics of a project site pertinent to its development, including but not limited to: climate, topography, view opportunities, solar orientation as well as jurisdictional and entitlement limitations.

Construction Observation 

During construction, Oatman Architects takes an active role as the Owner’s advocate to ensure that the Owner’s objectives, and the intent of the design, the plans and specifications are being met.  Generally, we meet with the contractor every other week or as otherwise required to ensure smooth communication in the flow of information between the Owner and the General Contractor and engineering and design consultants.  Pay requests and change orders are reviewed to ensure that they are appropriate and properly documented.  For remote out-of-country or out-of-state clients, bi-weekly progress reports documenting progress with text and photographs are provided.
