Architectural & Design Services
Homeowners often ask themselves if they should hire an independent architect or a design-build team. So what are the differences between the two?
Architects: An Option To Consider
We collaborate with architects, depending on the size and scope of the project. But often when dealing directly with an architect, they will only produce a design for a client and usually won’t take into consideration the cost of the project until multiple bids are procured. At that point, the client needs to decide if that level of investment is doable or not. If it’s not, then it could mean that you’re back at the drawing board.
Why A Design-Build Team Is Great!
Design/Build teams are wonderful for larger, hands-on projects. In the very beginning, we’ll have a conversation about the level of investment you’d like to stay within and we’ll design accordingly. Since our designers are well-versed in the costs of materials and different construction methods, we can advise you of available alternatives, should costs threaten to escalate. On more involved projects, we will engage with licensed architects via a separate contract, to combine design and construction all under one roof. This way, we create one point of contact to design and build your project organically and economically, while still providing you direct access to an architect to discuss issues pertinent to your design.
