Design Sketches

During the bunker renovation project at lot of the final shaping decisions were made in the field so that the newly constructed bunkers looked like they were there all along. We worked off of one dimensional construction drawings that were done by Nicklaus Design. Tom Pearson was the lead Design Associate in charge of our renovation project and he visited the site four different times during construction. Due to the distance of Nicklaus’s home office from our project a lot of emailing pictures took place back and forth to make sure that we carried out the proper design elements. There were times that we had difficulty visualizing how some things should look and that is when design sketches were drawn for us to work off. These sketches were done by Tom Pearson who often times would draw these sketches in a matter of minutes, truly amazing pieces of art work.
