Our office doors are closed, but our virtual doors remain open. Here’s how we’re complying with the stay-at-home order while making sure you receive an amazing architectural design.
Meeting with Our Clients
Client briefings are an essential part of our design process. Although we can’t meet in person, we’re committed to ensuring that your vision makes it into the final design.
Many of our briefings can be completed over the phone or through the video conferencing application of your choice. We can also use screen-sharing software to show you the earliest stages of your design.
If stay-at-home orders continue, you can expect us to develop a streamlined process for virtual client meetings. In the meantime, feel free to call us or send us an email so we can find arrangements that work for you.
Filing Building Permits
Our Georgia clients will be pleased to learn that Atlanta City Hall has also started working from home. As of April 6th, the city has launched an electronic system for digital permit submissions. Although there might be slightly longer delays than normal, we should be able to move client projects forward at a normal pace.
Don’t worry if your building permit has already been submitted in a paper format; the City of Atlanta is developing a procedure to handle these applications. SEA Studios will monitor the progress of your permit to make sure your project is completed in a timely fashion.
Developing Our Designs
An architect never really stops designing, even when they’re clocked out for the day. For many of us, working from home is simply a matter of bringing our technology and equipment to a new environment.
Our design firm is continuing to hold virtual office hours so we can complete your projects on time. With digital file sharing and regular check-ins, we’ve managed to replicate our normal creative and productive atmosphere.
The world might be working from home, but SEA Studios is continuing to produce the quality work that you’ve come to expect. Feel free to reach out if you want to discuss a new project or check on the status of your current design.
