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 Process of a Phoenix Architect Part 1

Architecture is a process that results in a finished product.  With that in mind, why wouldn’t you want a process to be followed when you’re looking at either building something from the ground up, or making some improvements?

A Phoenix Architect and Continuous Communication

You know what often separates a triumph from a fiasco?  Communication at all steps of the process is key. While projects undertaken by a Phoenix architect often determine their own courses of action, they usually follow a  pattern.  For example, the first meeting should always be a complimentary consultation.

Architectural consultation should be all about ideas and discussion.  It’s a good time to have your documentation in order, and have field measurements and pictures taken.    At the end of the consultation, it’s a good idea to plan if and how to move further into the design process.

The Architectural Design Process

When you’re going through the architectural design process, you should start to get ideas from your architect.  This in turn leads to a conceptual design.  During this process, things start coming into balance.  What’s practical is balanced by what’s aesthetically pleasing.  On the subject of practicality, your architect is also a guide, and can help you navigate the often complex rules regarding building codes and permits at various levels of government. This is the point that you start entering into the practical phase of your design.

It isn’t as simple as just buying some building materials, hiring some workmen, and putting the building up.  A lot of people have some unreasonable expectations.  A good design will take several weeks to even months to complete.  While you may balk at that time-frame consider this.  Wouldn’t you rather have the building done right, and not have to worry about things like fines or even criminal charges?  That’s why you hire an architect in Phoenix.
