Why hire an Architect?

Architects solve problems.

Architects can assist you through the numerous design options, building codes, zoning laws, contractors, and permitting requirements. The architect is the one professional who has the education, training, experience, and vision to guide you through the entire design and construction process, from helping you define what you want to build to helping you get the most for your construction dollar.

Architects can save you money.

Architect services are a wise investment for the money, not an added cost to your project because a well-conceived and designed project can be built more efficiently and economically and increase your property value. Architects avoid over-sized rooms and wasted space and can help you select materials within your budget and at a fair price.

Architects can make your life easier.

Architects look out for your interests and find ways to make the process go smoothly and help you find a qualified and reputable contractor. They visit the construction site to help verify that the project is being built according to the plans and specifications.

Architects add value.

Architecture’s value comes from intelligent concern with research, the environment, energy conservation, health and safety, budgets and, especially, buildings that last. Calling on an architect is a smart investment rather than a luxury. A well-planned building is economical, energy efficient, meets current needs, anticipates needs of the future, and will hold better resale value. Your home is an investment. Treat it (and your family) they way it deserves to be treated.

Even the simplest of projects can be very complex.

Each situation is different, including people, needs, site, financing, and regulatory requirements. Many client needs and expectations come into focus only in the process of design. As the client and architect mutually evaluate various approaches to the solution, priorities are clarified and new possibilities emerge.
