What Services Does an Architect Provide?

Architectural services include design, preparation of construction documents, and construction administration. Architects also provide a wide variety of services including feasibility studies, architectural programming and project management.

Featured Services

Project Inception

The planning of your project starts here. Working together with your architect, you will share your project needs, dreams and goals.

Schematic Design

During this stage your architect will begin by preparing preliminary design sketches based on your requirements and budget to explore and illustrate possible options. The architect will review these options with you, pointing out the merits and responding to your input.

Design Development

This stage refines the agreed upon schematic design for a clearer definition of the scope and quality of the finished project. Further cost projections will determine how closely the design conforms to the budget expectations, or what, if any, adjustments are required.

Construction Documents

When the design concepts have been decided, the architect prepares working drawings and specifications. These are required to obtain building permits and bids, and to guide the contractor in construction

Other Tasks

New Construction

New construction projects require in-depth planning, design and coordination. We place special attention on site selection, along with market and demographic information, to ensure new construction projects start off right. We’re known throughout the industry providing high-quality facilities that will reduce maintenance and operational costs over the building’s lifetime

Remodeling

Remodeling projects come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes, it’s just time for a facelift, or a building is needing to be brought up to code. Other times, owners are looking to create a more efficient space. Remodeling an existing building is a vital segment of our architectural services. Similar to new building projects, the effort and attention to detail used during a remodel significantly impacts the lifetime value of a building or facility

Tenant Improvement

Tenant improvement projects have proven to be a cost-effective approach for clients to have a new space or location designed to fit their needs. Within tenant spaces, you still have opportunities to change the space to better suit your needs while remaining compliant with your tenant agreement. Even small decisions or changes can have a large impact during the time you hold the space.
