Architecture services have becoming increasingly popular in the past few years due to increased demand for housing in the United States. As the housing recovery and overall economic recovery continue to paint a more upbeat picture, more architecture services are being contracted. Architecture services allow for home building, home redesign, and more. Typically, if architecture is becoming increasingly in demand, that economy is usually on a upward swing.
Most architects offer both residential and commercial architecture design, as well as structural engineering services. For residential services, architects will work to come up with a design that meets all your needs, while working to meet your construction budget. Residential services typically include preliminary design, construction document preparation, interior design, landscaping design, energy efficiency calculations, and construction administration.
Other areas architects specialize in include custom residences, renovations, additions, new construction jobs, historic preservations, multi-family units, apartment complexes, condominiums, and even property development. Architects can generally even create three dimensional renderings to help show you your plans, elevations, sections using exclusive and modern design software. This allows for increased efficiency, easy planning, and helps to reduce costs and miscommunications. Commercial services typically include pre-design feasibility studies, building evaluations, programming, surveys, preliminary design, three dimensional modeling, and more. Construction administration and architecture designs are also available. Most architects are adept at construction documentation, code analysis, energy code compliance, and design development, among others. Construction administration services include: assisting in bidding and negotiations, permitting, project management, site preservations, and more.
