The Interview - At our first meeting we will to want learn about you, the scope of your project, your desired timeline, and your proposed budget. We will also familiarize you with some samples of our work, drawing from recent examples that may be similar to your proposed project. We will take into account how your budget compares with a rough estimate of current per-square-foot building costs, based on our experience with other comparable projects.
We will also want to know about your site. If you have a remodeling project, we will usually want to visit the site before proceeding further. For new construction, an initial site visit is still very important, although not always essential if sufficient photos, a site topographic map, survey or other accurate depiction of project location and boundaries, and information on basic site development restrictions, are available.
With this information in hand, we will prepare a written proposal for architectural services at your request. This proposal, upon your written consent, becomes a letter agreement that defines the first phase of our services and provides a professional fee estimate and tentative schedule.
After your authorization to proceed with the project, we begin assembling the information we need to begin the design process.
