Ramekins Culinary School, Events & Inn

Under new ownership, Ramekins Culinary School, Event Center & Inn retained the services of Firma Design Group to provide guidance, consultation and planning services to achieve their ultimate vision for the property. Ramekins was interested in developing an outdoor event center space and was required to proceed through the City of Sonoma Planning Commission, Design Review Committee and the Building Department in order to complete their project. Michael was tasked with expediting the process to ensure construction would start and finish within the timeline of the client and was instrumental in guiding the project through this four month process.

Additionally, Michael assisted Ramekins with construction project management services from the ground breaking to the final day of construction (just 1 week prior to the first event day reserved - as planned). Michael’s involvement with this project made this incredible improvement possible.

“.....Michael’s knowledge of plant material and irrigation technology enabled our property to receive a grant from the Sonoma County Water Agency, receive numerous awards for water-conservation, and demonstrate that native gardens are beautiful. He also worked with us to develop a sustainable garden that we use everyday to supply our culinary school and event kitchen. We truly enjoyed working with Michael.”      -Sarah Anderson, Owner
