Vahid drew a plan that I later took to the San Francisco city department of building inspection and from the first try, changes to the apartment that we were planning to remodel had been approved. That tells me that Vahid is an architect who knows exactly what he is doing. He has printed 4 copies of the plan even though San Francisco department of building inspection requires only 2 copies. All 4 copies have been included into a price. I am definitely his client if I ever will need architectural plans drawn again in the future.

Christian Bratt is very versed in his abilities. One showing that he is capable of design and engineering the complete process for homes in and around the Lake Tahoe area. Quick response via email and phone call show that he wants to make sure the client or contractor questions or concerns are heard and responded to as quickly as possible to keep each entity working towards the goal of completing the project with the time frame. His outgoing personality makes him a fun guy to work with and i would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great design engineer in the Lake Tahoe area. Jeff Bahrke

Rick Roitinger built out handicap access structures for my husband who suffered a bad bone break. His work on this project was outstanding. He has also helped helped with a wide range of repairs on our house and our gallery, including carpentry, electrical and plumbing work. He is always positive and has great solutions on how best to repair things. He's the best!

Eli was recommended to me by my contractor. We were remodeling our home and were in need of his services. He was very prompt and we can tell he was skilled at remodeling and home renovation. He brought up good points and ideas that we wouldn't have thought of ourselves. He was clear, concise, and was very patient with our questions and concerns. He worked well with our contractor and the City, which is an entire ordeal in itself. He even went out of his way to meet with the City for questions and concerns they had. We couldn't have asked for a better engineer and drafter on our team! Thank you, Eli!

    I retained Mr. McDonald to re design an apartment building in the San Francisco Marina District which was built in 1928. The mandate was to preserve the building's period charm; yet increased the living area. The suggestions were relatively simple and he was able to enlarge both the kitchen and bathroom without changing the envelope of the building............and all the work was done with permits which is very complicated in San Francisco! His services were the cheapest money I ever spent and enhanced the rental value of the units.

    My knowledge of how a project goes together puts me in an advantage as I limit the job of the structural engineer to a minimum. The most satisfying part of my job is seeing what we designed, myself and my client, come to life!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How do architects work?

    Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

    When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

    How do architects charge for their services?

    According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.
