Apr12DO I NEED AN ARCHITECT?

If you have a RESIDENTIAL project that…

…you are concerned about the aesthetics of your project and tying it into the existing architecture…

…you are interested in finding creative ways to use your space differently than you may have imagined…

…is a very complicated project, involving multiple floors or rooms…

…you want to illustrate your design ideas to help you communicate with your contractor…

…requires structural work (adding or removing walls or openings)…

…changes the doors/windows and exiting…

                    …you probably would benefit from hiring an architect. 

If you have any type of COMMERCIAL project…

                     …you will most probably require an architect.

Here is a link to AIA Pittsburgh’s website which we think does a great job of further explaining the process:

SCF Architecture offers a free consultation to learn about your project and help you determine whether or not you would benefit from hiring an architect – we don’t want to spend your money any more than you do – we are very  budget conscious and will try to help you figure out a plan to move forward.  And keep in mind, the money spent on design services at the beginning of the process ends up being a very small fraction of the overall project cost typically.  Sometimes, architects can even help find ways to save money by efficiently planning the space based upon your actual needs.
