This is in recommendation of the architectural design of my private residence undertaken by Arch Austin Etiaka late last year, October 2015. Austin is a fine responsible gentleman, intelligent, thorough and professional with his job. I had sat down with him and gave him a rough sketch of the building I wanted constructed and I was extremely impressed with his finished product. A real classic.This building which is my personal retirement home is currently under construction and I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this architect to anyone who may require his services.We have been great friends ever since my initial contact with him.And I intend to work with him again and again in my future projects.

I found Austin to be, not only a professional with a fair pricing , but also an Angel. He finished my property 's plot map design in the timely manner and delivered to me. He also, offered his help and advice further for free. Above all, he offered his assistance in case things go wrong with the city or another problem came up. I am extremely satisfied and happy to choose him among others, and I would recommend him 100 times.Apr 23, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?like I stated above, it depends on the type of work. Generally I charge per sq. If the City requires Energy calculations the customer has to pay extra $200 to produce one.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I charge $2.00 _$3-00 sq. ft. to produce Architectural working drawings for City approval. It depends on type of job and the number of sq ft of addition. Pricing can be negotiated.We conduct site analysis, it involves measuring existing buildings and lot sizes to ensure that set backs are met. Customer is responsible for plan check and permit fees. Hourly rate is $45 an hour.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Associate degree in Architecture with honors. Certified kitchen designer.
