Sometimes clients just need a little good advice. Downer / Associates offers consulting for:

  • Project feasibility for both existing and prospective homeowners
  • Analysis and advice on zoning, historic, and other regulatory constraints
  • Preliminary project budgeting and relative construction costs
  • Contractor qualification and selection

A few hours of expert advice could save thousands of dollars in unnecessary expense or help discover the potential in that house for sale that “needs work”.


A successful project requires good design and good construction. For clients interested in an alternative to the traditional design – bid – build process, Downer / Associates also works with quality contractors as partners in the design / build process in order to take advantage of our complementary skills for the benefit of our Clients and provide single-source responsibility for both design and construction.
