A collaborative,
4-part process.

Finding, designing, and building a unique, custom space can be a complex task. We break down the process into more manageable phases so you know what to expect throughout the entire project. Working with you, Workbench can help determine the goals, necessary deliverables, and schedule for a successful project.

It starts with you and what you value.

Our initial conversations help us understand what you are looking for and how we can get there. Workbench then does the research to better understand the site, the people and the regulations that will shape the project. Early collaboration with you ensures that those first critical decisions are the most successful.
  • Team Selection/Kickoff
  • Market Analysis/Comparables
  • Real Estate Entitlements
  • Feasibility Study

In this phase, we further develop design concepts and ideas. It’s here that Workbench will test the options that define the general look and feel of your custom space.
