Why do I need to hire a design consultant?                This is a great question! The simplest answer is we know best.  Our experience in the field of design has provided us with a wealth of knowledge.  We've probably encountered just about every challenge there is when it comes to designing a food service or c-store facility.  Clients who choose not to hire a professional design consultant because they thought they could design their facility themselves or to save some money on the front side usually end up paying for it in the end anyway.  I've often said "Don't be penny wise, but pound foolish".  In other words, the cost of hiring a consultant will pay off in short time by avoiding costly mistakes, delays and oversights. 

 

bullet

Why should I hire PES Design Group?                  Simple. We are the best at what we do.  With over 40 years in the business of Food Service and C-Store design we have the tools and experience to complete your project satisfactorily, on budget and on time.  Don't take our word for it. We will happily provide you with references. Just give us a call and ask!  Also, take a look at The Team page to read about the principles of business and design that we adhere to.

 

bullet

How long have you been in business?                        Our company has been around in one form or another since 1985.  However, the PES Design Group was opened in 2011.  It is the design division of Cademan Enterprises, LLC, which was founded in 2001.  Our two principal design consultants have many years of design experience working with some of the biggest names in Food Service. Jim Richards (Sr) has been in the food service design industry for over 40 years and has been designing c-stores for over 25 years.  Jim Richards (Jr) has been in the food service consulting business for 25 years.  Please take a look at our portfolio for just a sample of projects they have worked on over the years.

 

bullet

What do your services cost?                                        Your initial consultation is FREE. We would love to speak to you about your project, ideas and goals. Our prices vary depending on what services you choose to contract us for.  We offer in-depth phone or video consultations for as low as $500 where we will provide you with a written report of design ideas and recommendations.  If you prefer, one of our design consultants will meet with you personally.  Additionally, we offer our full design service package where we may provide you with a complete set of design documents including layouts, equipment schedule and specifications, final connection plans, custom equipment specs and detail drawings and/ bid documentation.  The cost of the package is essentially determined by the size of the project and scope of work.  Simply contact us and we would be happy to speak to you about your project and provide you with a written quote.

bullet

What are the terms of payment?                                    Our contracts are broken up into "phases".  Your first payment will be due when you return a signed contract.  It's typically 25% of the total contract.  Your next payment will be due once we reach a satisfactory design and we're ready complete the final connection plans and equipment specifications.  That payment is typically 50% of the total contract.  The final 25% payment will be due when we complete the documents package.

 

bullet

What type of payment do you accept?                           We will gladly accept your check or any major credit card.

 

bullet

How long does a project take to complete?                     It really depends on the scope of the project.  We can typically prepare a preliminary design within 2-3 weeks of   an in-depth consultation.  We also gladly work within the scope of architectural submittal deadlines. 

 

bullet

Are your services limited to any geographical area?       Not at all.  We will work with clients anywhere in the world. 

 

bullet

Are you an engineer or architect?                                 We are not architects nor engineers.  We are design consultants who provide design and equipment information specifically related to food service and c-store planning.  Our plans and specifications can be used seamlessly by your architect and/or engineer for use in preparing their bid, construction and permit documents.

 

bullet

Are you an interior designer?                                        We do offer interior design services.  We design projects with the end design scheme in mind. We will also gladly work with your interior designer to make sure our design   fits perfectly within the overall design scheme.

 

bullet

Could you recommend and architect, interior designer or general contractor for my project?                            Certainly.  In our years of experience we have crossed paths with many competent firms that we could recommend for your project.  If you are an architectural or interior design firm and would like to be considered as a recommended firm please give us a call.  We would be happy to speak with you about your services.
