When Should You Hire an Architect?

An architect doesn’t just draft blueprints; they also analyze properties, make decisions, and oversee the construction process. Know when to call your favorite architect to streamline and improve your building’s design.

Purchasing a New Location

Whether you’re looking at an empty lot or an existing building, an architect will know exactly how to turn any site into the perfect venue for your company. Start talking with your design team as soon as possible; they’ll help you make a plan for the location and avoid and preventable – and expensive – mistakes.

Planning Major Renovations

A contractor knows how to put in new floors or counters, but they don’t always know why. A professional architect will make sure that every aspect of your renovation fulfills a functional and aesthetic purpose. Trust your architect to help you choose new elements that blend perfectly with the old. By the time they’re done, you’ll think your current headquarters were professionally designed from scratch.

Staying Up to Code

When it comes to following local regulations, no one can beat an architect. An individual contractor might not be aware that their recent installation violates part of the city code. An architect will do the research, file the permits, and create a plan that fits within ordinances while still meeting your company’s needs. Whether you’re starting a new project or preparing for an inspection, you’ll never regret consulting with your favorite architectural team.

Discussing the Possibilities

From adding a new wing to updating the lighting, every change to a building should enhance the space and improve the lifestyle of the occupants. Your architect will help you decide which changes should be made, and they’ll also help you find the most cost-effective way to make them. Work with your architect to build a long-term plan for your headquarters, and enjoy the extra confidence behind your decision making process.
