Methodology

We place a heavy emphasis on meeting with a client to define expectations and document those expectations with a high degree of clarity.  Depending upon the project, we will either prepare a “deck”, or develop a conceptual design for the customers to review.  The deck and the design usually start with a site visit, field measurements and photographs.  With the conventional deck, we mock-up our graphics solutions for the areas the customer is interested in or when appropriate we provide full 3D modeling, in CAD drawings, 3D spatial visualizations and animations.

These tools help everyone involved, understand the project’s requirements.  From the start, Blair Inc. makes sure that there is a clear understanding as to who is to do what, when and how.  A dedicated Project Manager is assigned to oversee all aspects of the job, is the key point of contact for the customer, outside suppliers and in-house personnel.
