Models, Colors and Onsite Mockup
ModelsModel images must be included with all Design Submittals (including resubmittals), Design Variance and Subsequent Changes Requests so that the Lahontan Covenants Commission may quickly reference proposals in a three-dimensional context.
Color and Material BoardA Color Board is among the Final Design Submittal requirements. While actual samples of all exterior materials (roof, wall, and ground plane materials, light fixture finishes, flashing, stone, wood, metal, landscape materials, etc.) may be affixed to a board, a digital Color and Material Board is acceptable. Colors and materials must accurately correspond to the Color Rendering. The confirmation of final exterior stonework and material color selections shall be delayed until the Onsite Mockup in order to better visualize the potential colors with actual materials intended for use.
Onsite MockupOnsite Mockups are a very important part of the construction process. It is the responsibility of the Contractor to display samples of all proposed exterior materials in their approximate future locations. A minimum of 16-square feet of each siding and roofing material must be displayed at one portion of the future building, so that the material may be viewed at one time from one vantage point. Trim (minimum sample size 10-lineal feet), accent materials, non-asphalt paving, and window-cladding samples must also be included for this viewing, as well as a 4-foot long mortared stone sample representing the size and color range of any stonework. A range of colors can be considered from manufacturers' paint chips and other small samples for the Color Board, but final approval will not occur until all the samples can be viewed next to each other and approved in the field during the Onsite Mockup.
The Architect or Contractor must make an appointment with the office of Design Review at (530) 550-2414 to review and provide written consent to the final selections, as well as provide a completed and signed, by the Architect, Exterior Materials and Colors Form.
