I’ll elaborate on what I’m looking for.
This would be a 1099 outside contractor assignment. You would only be required to provide a design by an agreed upon date. Your hours, work space, tools, and oversight would be up to you.
Background on our company: We provide grounds maintenance work for the commercial customer- primarily homeowner associations. We also have a construction division that primarily performs bid/build work. Attached to our grounds maintenance are some add-on services: Renovation, irrigation repair and upgrade, and arbor services. You would be helping us with our Renovation services. 2013 sales were $14.3m
We currently have four maintenance branches with a fifth in development. Your role would be to convert a renovation concept into a graphical representation that is based on sound horticulture and design elements. Each branch has an Account Manager that has vast practical knowledge but generally lacks CAD skills.
The Account Manager would provide you with a location, a plant list, a hard-scape element list (rocks, paths, lights ect), and some measurement s for scale. Your task would be to convert this into something that a customer could easily understand in the form of a plan. We do have copies of Dynascape that we have not made much use of. Designs in this format may be helpful or simply done in PDF would work. If possible, I’d like this to be done without the need for an onsite visit.
My preference would be a fixed-fee or line item pricing. Propose what you are comfortable with.
If you are interested, please email me some samples and your proposed pay structure.
