Few people realize how complicated it is to build. That is until they find themselves lost in the maze of design options, building codes, zoning laws, contractors, and so on. Regardless of whether you're planning residential or commercial, urban or rural, single- or multi-family construction-no two building projects are exactly alike. There is no single, clear-cut path to follow.
An Architect is a professional who has the education, training, experience, and vision to guide you through the entire design and construction process, from helping you define what you want to build, to helping you get the most for your construction dollar.
The licensure of an Architect involves a minimum of 5 years of professional education and three years of experience before becoming eligible to take the licensing exam. The licensing process is an extensive series of written and graphic exams that test a candidates ability against established standards. Only licensed Architects may carry use the title "Architect."
Hiring a licensed Architect will assure you receive the attention and professionalism your project deserves, backed by industry tradition and the responsibility of licensure.
