As a GC myself, Fady has been a great architect to work with. He has a commanding knowledge of building codes and regulations which helps keep the builder out of any trouble. He also pays close attention to details when it comes to his drawings. Any questions that do arise throughout the course of a job, his response time is immediate and always looking to help get the job done as efficiently as possible.

I am so happy with Mazi's services (Mana Design) . He completely designed and drafted the new layout and design for my shop. He got the city approval and pull the permit. It is not easy to find someone who you can trust and has experience in commercial interior design. After interviewing with many people, my partner and I, picked MaNa Design because we found Mazi so professional from the day first. Until the final day, he was on top of his schedule and we were in touch via any cominucqtion system such as FaceTime, Skype, etc. and personal meeting during those 10-days. You must see his beautiful showroom, it tells how he cares about every detail. His company is a real example of success and novelty. I am writing this comments to share with everyone our wonderful experience with his design services. We are going to buy all materials that we have chosen from his showroom and we will defiantly use his company - Mana Design Build Inc - to do the construction part. He is licensed and bonded and as far as we did research on his company, he did many beautiful and amazing construction. I hope the above comment helps you all.

Blair has been great. We are lucky to be able to work with someone so professional and responsive. You will not find such a responsive architect on his level without spending 4-6x the price. Thank you!

I have worked with many building designers and Reza is unique in that he listens to his clients and tries to incorporate their ideas into a design that is practical and functional. He has an easygoing personality, accommodates changes, and has many contacts in the building trades. He obtained all of the necessary permits for me and helped legalize an unpermitted addition. I will definitely use his services again.

After the first meeting and explaining to the architect what I wanted with a simple, yet functional patio cover, he took the concept and presented the plans, ready to have the city's approval. It is very nice to work with people that show skin the game.

I did 1500 sq.ft. project of Oriental Medicine clinic with Roi. It was my first time doing construction and he helped every step. Even though it was a small project, but he took his time to explain all the details about the process and he was willing to learn about new field of Oriental Medicine, so that he could deliver perfect design solution for my needs. If you value your architect’s personality and work attitude in addition to his professionalism, he is the perfect guy. I will definitely come back to him for future project. And I would strongly recommend Roi for any type of project.

Stan responded to my Thumbtack solicitation for a brewery-distillery in the Los Angeles area. Stan was communicative, prompt, professional, and provided a very reasonable rate. He also went above and beyond his call of duty, as several of our real estate deals fell through, and Stan did not charge for extra time / trips to accommodate this misfortune. He also took time to meet with me and work on the project when most others would be "off the clock." Stan is a great find. He has continuously been a source of strength and support on my project, which was completed in a swift and excellent manner. I highly recommend him!

Soltan construction was very helpful on both my projects. The first one was my residence. Gelareh was the person that we worked with. She is very detailed and very organized. It was so easy to get a hold of her. She was very creative in coming up with unique, modern ideas and mixing them with classic design elements to make our house really feel like a true reflection of us. She was able to work within our budget but still make everything look very high-end. My husband and I were so delighted with this company that we decided to use them for a commercial project as well. The commercial project called for a great deal of specifics with the city, the architect, the design and construction company. Once again Soltan came through. Their attention to the specifics and their efficiency makes them a huge asset. I would highly recommend them especially Gelareh!!

    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.
