When Chris and his father Tom built an 800sq.ft. detatched two story structure on my property in Costa Mesa. From the get go they were timely and well versed in the art of construction. The job came in on time and at the proposed budget. The overall experience was very good and I would use them again if they'd travel to Hawaii to work for me.

Fady was very helpful, positive, knowledgable and went the whole 9 yards to make sure everything went as planned and on time. He was always there when we needed him, and found every way possible to design what we wanted while saving us money. He took our project as if it was his own. Stellar job. We highly recommend the FT group and we are blessed to have found him

Our kitchen and bathroom renovation went so smoothly!! The owner, Guy, has a great eye for design and space planning so we just followed his lead because his ideas were so much better than ours. And at the end of it all, the execution was unmatched. This is definitely a company that cares about their clients. There was always somebody there to answer the phone, we had guys cell phone number in case we had any questions, and his staff is always pleasant and helpful. I would definitely hire him again.

I love working with NXT Design. Not only does their team always bring talented designers to the table, but NXT Design can help to solidify an overall brand experience. This was crucial to us as our shared office spaces rely on a strong brand experience in each location. We always hire NXT Design to create the look and feel of all of our offices. They've created a standard for our brand as we continue to expand. NXT Design is also flexible and very easy to work with. They understand branding and design, as well as the construction and development side of it. NXT Design created several craft furniture pieces for us that added a quality custom look we needed. They are also able to assist with quality control of build out of our spaces. We're so grateful for all of their help.

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.

Cristian was amazing. I needed to convert the space above my garage to an ADU... he did the drawings, worked with the plan check, worked with the inspector ... it was a seamless process with Cristian. He is incredibly reliable, honest and trustworthy. I highly recommend him.

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!

Armen came to us recommended by another designer whom we know socially, to help us design a room addition. He proved to be a great choice. He has a good eye for home design, and he was very careful to satisfy all our exigencies of function and space. He was extremely responsive to phone calls and emails and met all deadlines. We now have a wonderful set of plans and digital schematics.

Joseph is an EXCELLENT electrician. I previously hired him for a job removing some malfunctioning electrical appliances in my new home. I was so satisfied by his work and professionalism that I rehired him recently to fix wiring in my bedroom ceiling fans/ lights and upgrade some outlets. He responded very quickly, arrived on time and explained EVERYTHING to me. I really appreciate his attention to detail and how he kept me so informed during the process. He ensured that I was aware of electrical safety, building codes, and really helped me understand all the aspects regarding the work he was doing. As a new homeowner, he has been such a valuable resource of knowledge and has made me feel so comfortable. His prices were more than reasonable and he went the extra mile to ensure that the work was done with the highest quality. I’m so grateful that I hired Spring Build and Design and I look forward to hiring Joseph and his team for future electrical project in my home.

      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.
