Fady has designed 3 projects for me now. He was not only very detail oriented but a complete professional throughout the build. My city in particular is very difficult to work with. I'm convinced had I not chosen Fady, my build would have not been completed on time. Thanks Fady!

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!

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!!

About

LeMaster Architects is a full service architecture firm located in Orange County, California. We specialize in residential and commercial projects of all scales including interior remodels, additions, and new construction. While we are primarily focused on modern design, we firmly believe that successful architecture is achieved through the creation of functional space regardless of applied aesthetics.

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.
