Wayne has exceeded expectation in every area that is valued as an architect. When our GC went through the plans with us, he mentioned often that the drawings were exception in detail and accuracy. Wayne was a pleasure to work during the construction phase of our restaurant also. We made so many changes and his patience, assistance and professionalism was extraordinary. If Wayne does your plans, you will not be disappointed!

Richard designed a remodel 'pop top' on our ranch style home in Boulder, CO. He has a meticulous care for detail and created a very thoughtful design. He was professional, timely and remained available and directly involved with the project from start to finish. He was enjoyable to work with and we would highly recommend him to anyone!

I am a Structural Engineer who has worked in Colorado since 1977. I have had the pleasure to work with Jeff Abrams on dozens of projects over the last 30+ years. Our projects together have been mostly large custom residences, however, we have worked on a few smaller residential additions. Jeff has an exceptional educational background (Yale, I believe) and a well traveled international architecture expertise. His travels to Italy appear to have especially influenced his design approach. He has a keen sense of the importance of small details. I feel that one of Jeff's strongest attributes is his humble ability to listen to the wants and needs of his clients and not let ego interfere at all. This is rare for an architect of his expertise. I also appreciate the fact that he visits the site often during construction. I must say that many of Jeff's designs challenge me as an engineer, but I do enjoy that piece of the process.

I hired BMS for a project in Twin Falls, Idaho. We had some significant challenges on the job that were non related to the scope of work that their team was responsible for. Yet still, they stepped in and helped overcome those challanges and more. They have always been punctual at returning calls even after hours when necessary and knowledgeable in not only the scope I hired them for but on other areas of our project that we needed their expertise with too. In addition we have corresponded on several projects since. If you want quality and professionalism at its best I recommend you look no further than BMS Engineering & Architects. I know they are my go to from now on. Thanks Matt Scheel for everything. Tracy Armstrong, President CEO, Stags Builders.

John designed an addition and full renovation in a fix and flip near DU. He listened to my needs and came up with a very workable design. During framing some modifications had to be made and John had the revisions done overnight. I highly recommend him.

John has been a wonderful architect for our recent home renovation/addition project. He is very easy to work with, attentive and focused on providing the best plans based on the client's input. We were most impressed with his creativity in designing an open and efficient floor plan that would work for us, given the limited space we had to work with. John is also very flexible and open to customer feedback rather than pushing a direction that might not work for the customer. Highly recommended.

I had deadlines to meet with demanding needs, and Barry came through for me. I would give him a 10 out of 5 if I could, he was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the whole process and he did it all in the short time he had. I would definitely recommend him and will be working with him in the future!

Mark Miller is a fantastic architect. He managed to take a bunch of crazy and bizarre wish list items (everything from secret doors, to spiral staircases, vintage poster storage and karaoke shower stalls), and somehow put them on paper, in a way that was both practical and beautiful. His architectural plans created our dream family home, designed in a way that the house blends seamlessly with landscape, and maximizes the views from every room. His fee was extremely reasonable, and we really didn't go through many changes - we had one draft and then a final set of architectural plans. As a result we were able to get the house built within budget, which is probably the first time that's ever happened.

We choose Mike for our architect after interviewing 3 firms, and so happy we did. He has been very helpful and given us great insight into our home planning. We had chosen a simple plan on-line and he helped us make the changes neccesary to make it our own. He had very good ideas, keeping in mind our budget. Any time we have questions, he is very quick in his response back to us. He had the first rough draft done in just a few days! Pus, I love the fact that he has a preferred structural engineer that he alread works with. We are so excited to see the finished product! I will definately recommend Mike to my friends and family for any of thier architectural needs! Tracy & Scott F Brighon, Colorado

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.
