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 Architecture

Architects are both artisans and engineers.  In most of the world, only qualified persons  may legally practice architecture.

An architect can help with a project, regardless of how big or small it is

The Licensure an Architect Needs to Practice

To get a license, first off any architect usually needs to have a degree from an accredited university. Each state usually requires exams to be passed as well.  In addition to this, there is also a fairly substantial training period. Arizona takes such terms and titles seriously, including versions such as architectural designer is restricted to licensed individuals by law.

To practice, a Phoenix architect must be able to work independently of supervision. Design professionals under the supervision of a licensed architect, such as architectural technologists and intern architects, often may not need a license to practice, however, they must approve all plans with the registered professional.


Experience that an Architecture Firm in Phoenix Needs

Architecture is a mentor-based profession.  It is one of the highest skilled labor jobs out there, so not everyone can do it.  Usually after passing their exams, and graduating from college, architects also have a length of time that they have to work under the supervision of a professional architect, usually of three years or more.  Like a lot of skilled professions,  sometimes continuing certification is also required.

If you think all of this material is excessive, think again.  One pin out of place in a girder, and a building can fall onto a busy street, killing or injuring hundreds or even thousands of people.  Less extreme is the effect a badly designed building can have on a skyline.  Look at the Seattle EMP museum.  Even though it was designed by a notable architecture firm, a lot of people in Seattle do not like the way it looks, which is not a high mark for it’s architect.

So when you get ready to hire a design professional, check out his portfolio, and check him out with with the state. That way you get an architect that is right for you and your project.
