Site Visits Good for the Project
Site visits are an important aspect of architectural services. Whether for a remodel or a new project, we visit the site at appropriate intervals to observe the construction, answer questions, and look out for any constructed elements that need adjusting. We discuss the progress with the team (client, contractor, and architect, etc.) and troubleshoot any issues that come up translating the architectural drawings to the built environment. We take lots of photos and notes, which document the progress and serve as a point of reference. We often use the photos to help illustrate our notes.
Regular site visits keep the lines of communication open within the team throughout the project.
It’s always a thrill to see a project move from the page (or computer screen) to the real world!
