Starting a building project without the expertise of an architect can be confusing and challenging because there are many choices to make and a myriad of factors to consider. Archi-Dinamica Architects believes in extensive research and consultation to determine what your needs, budget, and options are and how they can be met before you consider a design. As commercial and residential architects, we help you define what you want to build by putting the design, technical, cost, and regulatory requirements of your project into an understandable order of importance before you decide to go ahead with your building project. Hiring an Architect can help you sort through the maze of building codes, complex regulatory processes of building permit, planning, and zoning departments at city, state and federal levels.
Hiring an architect from the onset can be a wise investment. An architect can help you define your project's goals, cost, and needs. Our Low Committment Consultation offers preliminary research that helps you find out everything you need to know before starting your project. It’s a crucial step in the design process. Without it, It’s like a doctor giving a prescription without proper diagnosis. What this means is that decisions made at the beginning of your project have great impact on the options you have available later. Investing well early in the process will pay huge dividends over the life of your project and the less roadblocks you will encounter.
