If you are looking to building a new building – small or large, renovating an existing building or adding on to an existing building it is important to hire an architect and here is why.
An architect has the training to convert your ideas into a tangible building program. An architect then gives it form, exploring several possibilities on making it just right for you. The right architect can make this journey very enjoyable.
An architect will work with your building site and locate the building such that it is oriented to maximize daylight without heat, balance cut and fill of earth for economy, consider natural drainage and work with it.
An architect while selecting a materials or system, takes into consideration long term performance, economy and energy efficiency. Some materials that may be inexpensive at the offset can prove to be cost prohibitive later due to their poor performance.
Architects are fully aware of the latest building codes and will make sure your building is compliant for safety and welfare. For instance, an architect will make sure you have enough exits out of the building in case of an emergency.
An architect also knows to put a team of professionals together to get the right expertise involved. A performing arts center will need the involvement of acoustic and theater consultants. A restaurant will need a food service consultant.
A building is one of your most valuable investments. We will make sure your return on this investment is significant. We will be guides by your side while making your journey enjoyable.
