We take care to examine each of these elements
and assess them in terms of your stated needs. For example, one special
renovation -- for a professor who needed to store his research material
-- turned a storage problem into a delightful and practical display
of 1,000 books.
We manage the project right through to completion of construction. Any
issues to do with City Hall -- building permits, variances and so on
-- can be handled by our office. Getting competitive bids from builders,
and safeguarding your budget are important features of our service.
We are on the construction site regularly to review the work as it gets
built, which is very important -- we are your professional eyes and
ears, determining how the builder gets paid, and what work gets accepted.
Our fees vary, depending on the type of project you are planning. Every
project is different! Renovations, for example, are assessed differently
from new home construction. A feasibility study, or a preliminary budget
to help you figure out what kind of cost you should anticipate for construction,
is often performed first for a modest fee, just to help you decide about
going ahead. We fit the fee to the project. Call us to discuss your
needs, and we can give you a better idea just what your house project
