Full Service Architectural

Pre-design, Site Visits, Pre-purchase/lease Walkthroughs, Zoning + Code Review, Existing Conditions Building Surveys, Project Programing, Schematic Design, Design Development, Zoning/Planning Board Presentations, Construction Documents, Bidding + Contract negotiations, Construction Administration, Contractor Payment Approvals, Project Closeout, As-built Documentation, and Design/Build Project Delivery.

Below are some expanded examples:

Design + Site Analysis

There are many variables that contribute to the context of a project. Every project is unique in its own way as there are no two similar building sites. Good design works with its surroundings, not against it.

Programing + Organizational Layout

Organization is king. Comprehensive knowledge of the client’s desires, budget, schedule, and context is the first step. Understanding the process / functionality and how to maximize its efficiency is what makes a design successful. If it’s designed correctly for its function, the task will come naturally to the user.

3D modeling

Our projects may begin with a hand sketch and or initial line drawings, however most if not all our projects are developed in 3D media. It allows us to convey the overall design approach to the client and ensures that we effectively organize and develop a project from all sides, literally.

Virtual reality walkthroughs

You can virtually tour your project and experience the overall design before it is ever built. This tool will aid in the decision making process and become the bridge between the Architect's vision and the Clients perception. (Image obtained from irisVR)

Code Review

It’s our civic duty to uphold the safety and welfare of the public and ensure that all projects adhere to local building codes and standards. We believe that good design is safe, and we find that preferably sound building practices actually exceed the code's requirements.

Zoning Presentations

Most projects are required to meet local Municipal Planning and Zoning board ordinances. We offer a full range of services focused on documentation and representation in order for the client to obtain all necessary approvals.

Permit + Construction Documents

We refine your design to include the required information for the procurement of general building permits. We also work out the required construction details and specifications needed for project takes-offs and costing, which can be performed by building contractors and or construction management services.

Construction Administration

Scheduled meetings and jobsite visits occur at integral stages of the construction to insure that the overall work conforms to the design and specifications. Team members gather to review the overall progress and projected schedule/budget. The Architect can be available to meet with the Owner, Contractor, and Municipal Authority to document and or resolve any unforeseen conditions/circumstances.

Design / Build Project Delivery

We work closely with reputable and skilled contractors and can offer clients an option for design/build project delivery. We can provide construction management services to ensure that the project is constructed as envisioned. In that the Architect has a holistic view of the project, the Architect is able to coordinate the trades to maximize the design opportunities and overall organization throughout the project’s development and construction.

Custom Fabrication

A unique signature to your project is actually quite obtainable and we love to incorporate those subtle finishing touches. It could be in the form of address numbers, a mailbox, shading/privacy panels, furniture, or even a piece of sculpture. We work closely with talented fabricators to ensure our designs are developed along practical and cost effective guidelines. We find that our collaboration develops a signature to its fullest design potential.
