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.

A custom home design architect should be involved at every stage of the process. One thing he will do that sounds simple but is crucial is an environmental impact study.  What is an environmental impact study.

According to the site CBD.INT:

“Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is a process of evaluating the likely environmental impacts of a proposed project or development, taking into account inter-related socio-economic, cultural and human-health impacts, both beneficial and adverse.
UNEP defines Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) as a tool used to identify the environmental, social and economic impacts of a project prior to decision-making. It aims to predict environmental impacts at an early stage in project planning and design, find ways and means to reduce adverse impacts, shape projects to suit the local environment and present the predictions and options to decision-makers. By using EIA both environmental and economic benefits can be achieved, such as reduced cost and time of project implementation and design, avoided treatment/clean-up costs and impacts of laws and regulations.” [READ MORE]

If you don’t do an environmental impact study, you’ll soon find yourself in trouble at different levels of government and face potential fines.  You also need an architect to  help navigate your way through the laws, ordinances, and codes of the area that you live in.

A Custom Home Design Architect: In the Know

At a glance, do you know how tall your home can be in your city? You want to wall off your home for privacy, can you do it on the front as well as the back, or just the back? When you’re designing your plumbing, why is it a bad idea to use PVC pipe in an attic in Arizona? Here are the answers to these questions. Your home’s height depends on the neighborhood that you live in as well as the city ordinances. Some cities in Arizona forbid two story homes, others allow it. Building a wall is equally diverse. Some cities only permit you to build a wall of about seven to eight feet and only in the back, while allowing you to build a lower fence in the front yard. You never want to use PVC pipe for any sort of plumbing that is supposed to be durable, especially in Arizona, as PVC pipe can become brittle and break easily.  A home design architect in Phoenix knows all of this plus more.

So as you see there is a lot to building a home. You may want to consult a home design architect and save yourself a lot of trouble down the pike.
