Define your project before you start.
Get the facts and relevant information to get your project going in the right direction. 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. 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. We 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.
