Classical Progression utilizes the latest in computer aided design and technology, along with the artistic and traditional style of hand drawings, to create the highest in quality design solutions for our clients. The initial research and study of a project incorporates an analysis of the project site, understanding the client's needs and program requirements, and extensive research of city ordinances.


Our 25 years of building experience enables us to create construction documents that are not only complete, but feasible for the project budget. We use software such as AutoCad, Revit, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe In-Design to design initial 2D drawings, and Rhino, Revit, and 3D Studio Max to create realistic computer renderings that give the client a realistic understanding of their new design. We can even walk you through your new home or office before it is built!
