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.

The Many Hats of an Architect Part 2: Mechanical and Electrical

An architect is more than just about design.  He’s also an expert in multiple areas of specialty, including: mechanical, structural, electrical, geo-technical, and civil.  Part two of our series explores mechanical and electrical engineering.

Mechanical and Electrical Engineering and a Phoenix Architect

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

Call in an architect for commercial or residential projects | (480) 710-3861

Does an architect in Phoenix deal with mechanical engineering?  Not on a residential project, but definitely on an industrial or commercial project one would, yes. First off, though, what is mechanical engineering?  “Mechanical engineering is a discipline of engineering that applies the principles of engineering, physics and materials science for analysis, design, manufacturing, and maintenance of mechanical systems. It is the branch of engineering that involves the production and usage of heat and mechanical power for the design, production, and operation of machines and tools.[1] It is one of the oldest and broadest engineering disciplines.” [READ MORE]

Say an architect is designing an industrial space, he would need to know a bit about mechanical engineering or work with a mechanical engineer on the design team.  And what about an electrical engineer?

Electrical Engineers and Architects

Electrical engineers design complex power systems.  What a lot of people don’t realize is that a building is more than just walls and floors.  It is a sophisticated combination of logistics, aesthetics,  and components that all must work together or the design is flawed.  So the power system must be able to be included in the architectural design, and everything on a mechanical level must work with the power system as well as the building design.  The more complex a commercial project is, the more an architect should be involved.

So as you see, a commercial project is just that, a project.  It involves ingenuity, discipline, and above all else, coordination.  And who is the best person to coordinate it all?  Why, a Phoenix architect of course.

This concludes part two of our series on commercial architects.  Be sure to read part one as well.
