I am not from the San Diego area and I needed an architect/designer/draftsman so I could do a complete remodel of an existing 1970's high rise condo unit. Pete was a pleasure to deal with and the project (at least planning and permitting) is done. I am now under construction and Pete is happy and prompt to answer my calls when I have or the general contractor has a question or need. I am from a construction materials background and I am currently a consultant in the stucco industry. Pete has a very good understanding of buildings and construction. During the process of design, we were able to locate the original plans. There aren't many people that can unroll a large set of plans and what they are looking at nor where to find details. I am a Certified Construction Document Technologist in the Construction Specification Institute and I am one of those people too. Needless to say it got us off to a great start. Pete was able to get the plans through the City of San Diego Building Department in ONE DAY over the counter. Pete is accurate, prompt and a gem. You would be crazy not to hire him. PS: He has a pretty good eye for fashionable design details Casey S.

Apcotects was very helpful in my interior decorating job and Jenny, the designer was very friendly and had great ideas that made the project turn out perfectly. They made two trips to the project and bought some of the colors to try out and I appreciate their help and professionalism throughout the project. Overall, I would highly recommend them and will use them again for any other projects I have.
