Budget & Schedule

We have an excellent track record of controlling costs and meeting deadlines. At the beginning of a project, we work with our clients to establish a realistic scope, budget, and schedule. From preliminary design through construction, we monitor and fine-tune the design and budget to yield the intended results. We seek the input of our consultants and contractors throughout the process.

Each project receives the personal attention of one or both of the firm's principals. We have strong relationships with experienced consultants in the fields of engineering, sustainable design, cost estimation, and interior design. We use AutoCAD and proven project management software in our practice.

Working with an architect can help

in developing a project program, a budget, a project schedule, and what to expect during the entire construction process.  We help prioritize goals, and present design options. We also recommend working with a contractor early in the process to validate a project's budget.

We offer a range of services

Most projects with an architect consist of five phases: Schematic Design, Design Development, Construction Documents, Bidding and Negotiations, and Construction Administration, but some residential projects might not require full services.  It depends on the project.  We can help with determining what's appropriate for a given project.
