As an architect, I help get things built. Commercial or residential, my services are based on the individual client's needs.
Primarily I listen and help clients focus their thoughts and their ideas.Then I use skill, knowledge, experience and whatever it takes to produce quality 2-D and 3-D renderings. Together we "refine" the design until it meets the clients needs and budget.
Only then are construction drawings drawn. Plans, elevations, details, etc.make up the instruments used by builders, material suppliers, code officials and others to ultimately construct the project.
