As architects, our goal for all renovations and additions is to blend the new construction with the existing house and make the two look like they always existed as one. We strive to design a well-conceived project that can be built efficiently and economically, while providing functional spaces.
Our firm has four basic, easily defined tasks for renovation projects. First, we meet and discuss the client’s project requirements. Second, we design, taking into account budget, site, code requirements, the client’s ideas and the house style. Third, we produce the necessary technical drawings and specifications to accomplish the desires of our clients that explain to the contractor in detail, what needs to be accomplished. These documents will also serve as a legally binding contract with the contractor, a graphic agreement to go along with your written contract.
Lastly, the firm can assist in the construction process as the client’s agent to review the project compliance.
