More often than not, you know what you need to do. However, sometimes a project throws you a curveball. Maybe it's a client who isn't sure what they want. Maybe it's a project that has grown beyond what your usual permit allows, or an inspector who wants more information from you than you have. We are here to help solve your issues and keep you building. Whatever you need, you want professionals you can trust, with a reliable team backing them up.
We can help you manage client expectations by working directly with them to develop design drawings you can count on. We are experienced with the complexities of the zoning and building codes, and we know what inspectors are looking for when they visit the job site.
And of course, we know that time is money, and that you need to get back to work as soon as possible.
We can meet with your client to help understand their needs, develop plans, and make them comfortable with the process so that they know what to expect. We'll provide you with a clear, biddable and buildable set of plans so everyone's on the same page right from the beginning.
If you're working on your own project, we can review your drawings for code compliance, provide suggestions for material upgrades or sustainable options, and key you in on current design trends. We can even put together a complete interior design package for you that will make your project stand out from the rest.
We will take care of filling out forms and submitting drawings for permits. We'll answer the examiner's questions, and pick everything up when it's approved. That means you spend more time on the jobsite, and less time in line at L&I.
Though you might think that the architect's job is finished after design, the architect actually plays a crucial role during construction. We act as the client's "interpreter" as the project goes from drawings to physical form, helping to manage their expectations and communicate any design changes they may make during the process.
We know that when working in the close quarters of an existing building, surprises inevitably come up, and we are there to help deal with them as they occur. We can provide quick solutions to situations as they arise, keeping the project on schedule.
