Do you include MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing) drawings in your quote?

Most residential customers and some commercial projects only require Architectural plans. Usually, general contractors will oversee subcontractors for pulling their own MEP permits using our architectural drawings as a base drawing. MEP drawings can be produced at additional cost and would be completed by an MEP engineer.

How long will my project take?

It really depends on the project. We can usually get smaller projects complete right now in a few weeks. But for a timeline please contact us at 800-524-8233 for a free estimate.

I have my own designs; can you work with them and modify them?

Yes, but there are some restrictions. Please call us at 800-524-8233 for a free analysis of your project.

Are you architects? Do I need an architect? Do I need an architectural stamp?

Some jurisdictions require an Architects seal on residential projects and all commercial projects require Architectural oversight, review, and seal.

Most residential projects do not require an Architect to oversee, review, and seal our drawings. We work with and hire Architects, Engineers, planners, and surveyors as might be required for your project. This business model helps us keep your costs down for those who do not need those services.

What is the process to design a new home?

See our Project TimeLine

Are revisions going to cost extra?

Depends on the level of revisions. We include a revision in all our quotes.

We usually break down quotes into:

  • Field verify existing conditions if we are modifying an existing structure.
  • Design in 3D with Zoom/teams with real-time design time.
  • Construction drawings and details for permit application and contractor quoting/building.
