Why does this Tenant Improvement Cost So Much?

    I’m often asked questions like this in the early phases of a tenant improvement. The client has many questions during early phases of an office relocation, and they normally would prefer to pin down the cost question quickly, so they can make a decision whether to move forward.

Architects and Architectural Design Part 2: An Architect’s Duties

Part two of our series on architects and architectural design explores the duties of an architect.

What Does an Architect Do?

An Architect Can Help You Build Your Dreams | 480-710-3861

lot of times people ask what they think is a stupid question: “what does an architect do?” A lot of other people assume that all we do is make up blueprints, and that’s it. However, an architect follows a deliberate and step laden process to get from conception all the way to the doors opening. Here are the first steps in the architectural process.

Step 1: The initial interview with the client.  This is more than just finding out what the client wants.  During the interview, both the client and the architect see if the partnership will be a good fit.  The architect shows off his portfolio, and goes over their normal process with the client.

Step 2: Gathering information.  This is where the architect visits the site to review the conditions he will be working with. If the project is from the ground up, a surveyor may be called, otherwise, a set of plans for the structure as is is provided.  These plans are readily available at the city/county as a rule.

The Architectural Process

The third step of the process can be summed up by a question: how feasible is my architectural project?  Using the  information from step two this  is where an architect prepares a couple of designs.  So as you see, there is a lot of pre-work before the project begins in earnest.  We will discuss more of this process in our next article.

For now, know that an architect is about more than just drawing plans.

This concludes part two of our series.  For more information on architects and architectural design, be sure to read part one and part three as well.
