The Architect is the creator and innovator of testing extreme designs, bringing imagination to life. A typical project will involve a rath of people including contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, building inspectors, banks, appraisers, interior designers, and landscapers as part of the process. This can become very confusing, and a number of times, the building owner may be confronted with multiple and sometimes conflicting advice. The job of an architect is help the building owner orchestrate differing opinions and assist the client in making decisions. The architect is one of the few team members working solely for their clients best interests. If this is your first project, an architect can help make your project less stressful. Hiring an architect is well worth the investment and perhaps can save you money, time, and frustration..
