EQUESTRIAN PROPERTY PLANNING & DESIGN
Sustainable Stables provides experienced, affordable equestrian facility master planning and design services. Our planning and design services are typically separated into four phases (see below). Some projects go through all four of these phases, while others may need only one or two. We are more than happy to customize our services and process to meet the specific needs of your project.
PHASE 1: INFORMATION GATHERING
We start by spending 6 to 10 hours of time (on average) gathering key information about your equestrian property, along with learning more about your personal vision for the site. For this phase, we bill hourly at $75/hr. Time spent during this phase enables us to bill subsequent phases at a flat fee.
PHASE 2: MASTER SITE LAYOUT DEVELOPMENT
In this phase, we develop a master site layout rendering(s) showing the proposed location and footprint of the various equestrian facility site improvements, including the barn, arena, pastures & paddocks, dry lots/sacrifice areas and hay/equipment storage areas. This phase is typically billed at a flat rate of $1,500 to $3,000 depending on the full project scope.
PHASE 3: 3D DESIGN PHASE
For clients wanting more detailed design assistance, we build upon the master site plan developed in Phase 2 by rendering the barn, arena and other equestrian site improvements in fully-custom, detailed 3D. This phase is billed at a flat rate -- typically $1,000 to $4,000 depending on the full project scope. We can also develop materials estimates (often called a materials takeoff sheet) upon request to enable you to get an accurate quote(s) for construction. We are happy to provide a discount to clients who agree to Phase 2 and 3 services together, as this enables us to be a bit more efficient with our time.
PHASE 4: ASSISTANCE WITH MATERIALS & SUPPLIES PROCUREMENT
Once we have worked with you to develop a plan, we are happy to assist you and your builder with procuring the necessary supplies and equipment to bring the plan to life. We have worked with most of the major barn supply companies over the years, and can therefore help you procure everything from stalls, to flooring, to feeders and waterers, to footing materials from your local quarry. This phase is billed hourly at our standard rate of $75/hr.
