- Operational analysis

Standard services include the following important coordinated design phases. Each phase is examined, planned, and executed by a professional staff using only the best interest of the client as a measure of acceptability.

Schematic Design Client design conferences for the purpose of developing the requirements of the foodservice program. Included are preliminary space requirements, small scale layouts, equipment list with utility requirements, and equipment cost estimates for review and approval.

Design Development Evaluation of schematic phase materials with the Client, along with architectural and engineering disciplines as needed to integrate foodservice requirements with related aspects of the project as well as coordinate the work with each discipline for a total operating system.
Included are revised drawings, budget, and schedule. Copies of the foodservice equipment cut book with pages of individual items, are provided for the use of Client review and related disciplines' information.

Construction Documents Preparation of CAD or REVIT working drawings consisting of layout plan, stub-in and connection plan complete with all required electrical, ventilation and mechanical connections, and details and elevations as necessary to illustrate the intent of the documents. Typewritten specifications suitable for bidding the equipment package are provided to illustrate the drawings' intent.

Construction Administration Review of bids with recommendations followed by the assessment and approval of shop drawings and contractor's submission. Periodic inspections to determine field problems and attendance in the demonstration of equipment complete the process.

Most clients select our complete range of services to insure maximum efficiency of operation and to guarantee full value for their capital investment. However, some circumstances dictate a selective or partial use of our consulting services to meet specific situations and we are prepared to address those Client needs. In addition to the above standard services, Crabtree McGrath Associates can provide special surveys and feasibility studies concerning unique problems and overall systems analysis.
