All of the architects selected as our strategic partners are chosen with one simple prerequisite in mind—they excel at what they do. That means you can be certain we will team you up with an architect who is ideally suited for your project in every way. We work hand-in-hand with the architect from the very beginning to make sure your project runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible. This team approach results in enhanced communication and cooperation. And that means greater quality for you with increased savings in both time and money.
Icon Group Architects – We’ll Keep Your Project on Track
Construction experts know how important an architect is to any building project. Architects can design a project that will not only meet the requirements of code inspectors but also the needs of the property owner. That means a properly designed construction project will incorporate the requirements of sound construction as well as provide a pleasing appearance for the property owner to enjoy. Of course, the design must also be functional. That’s why, at Icon Building Group, we encourage our clients to trust an architect to come up with a plan that will provide end results everyone involved can be happy with.
Are All Architects Equal?
Of course not. A building must be designed to both look and function properly or the owner is unlikely to be happy. While one design professional may be proficient at planning a commercial building, that individual may not be talented at providing home designs. Home Building Architects tend to specialize in private homes rather than other types of structures, and those are the experts Icon Building Group recommends for their building projects. Whether it’s a remodeling project on an 1800s Victorian home or new construction with a contemporary flair, working with a design expert can easily make the difference between a successful project and one that’s lacking. We want our clients to be happy with their homes and always try to match clients with the best available architect for their needs.
Architects are Part of a Team
Architects don’t work in a vacuum. They must work closely with the client and with the contractors who will do the actual building. If there are design issues, the client must be able to communicate with the architect to get the issues resolved before the construction process can continue. The contractor must also be able to easily work with an architect if it appears there is no practical way to accomplish the goals the architect established for the project. Sometimes, concessions have to be made to keep a project on track and on budget. The architect must be amenable to making changes in a plan that is not readily workable.
How Much Does it Cost to Use an Architect?
There is no set fee for the services of an architect. The costs vary depending on the level of involvement a client wants from the design professional. In some cases, all the architect is required to do is rubber stamp the plans before permits are issued. In other cases, a client may wish to retain the architect to be available throughout the construction process. In that case, the expenses can mount quickly. Be sure to discuss the options available with the architect and the rest of the team at Icon Building Group. While we want our clients to enjoy the best results possible, we also understand that containing costs is also important. However, we still feel an architect can provide the expertise needed to keep your project on track.
