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 3: The Final Stages of a Project

Part three of a series on architects and architectural design explores the final stages of a project.

The Architectural Process:  It’s All in The Details

At this stage  your architect is bringing  the design concepts that he or she learned in college.  if it is a current building that is being remodeled, at this point maybe a feature can be improved on.  For example, let’s say you don’t have enough light in a room. This may be the time to add another window or a skylight.  All changes are checked, double-checked, and even modeled to make sure that they don’t adversely affect the structural integrity of your home or business.  After all the checking is been done, it enters into the permits process.

The reason that permits are put in place are to help with oversight, keep in compliance with building codes, and to protect public safety.  It’s all very well and good to make a building that is five stories high, but if the local jurisdiction only permits buildings of two stories, then the project will encounter snags.  There is also the aesthetics of your building project, both on a residential level and on a commercial level.  An architect has to have familiarity with the city’s codes.

Architectural Design and City Planning

A professional architect has to know the way the city works.  For example, in places such as Santa Barbara and Cape Cod at opposite ends of the country, there are only a handful of building styles that are permitted in each city.  Why?  Well, the city planners don’t want anything to disrupt the aesthetics of the city.  Multinational corporations such as Starbucks and McDonald’s had to learn the hard way about signage, building design and more when they tried to expand into these areas.

It makes sense if you think about it.  No one wants a bright neon sign in the middle of a quaint village, nor does nayone want a skyscraper in an area that’s all residential.  That’s why it’s always best to hire the right architect to help you with any remodeling projects, or designs.

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