  • Karmin Y. Aug 15, 2017
    F9 Productions has been a great partner as we created design tools for our SIXINCH North America product line. Lance and Alex are very talented renderers and adept at taking whatever information you can give them and transforming it into a beautiful image. Great communicators, quick turnaround times, attention to detail—we highly recommend them!

    Be realistic on time projected to have a finished product. Remember:we are customers...we are paying to get a finished product..not your opinion of us. Don't add in unnecessary items that will increase costs of building. If builder says something is wrong/unnecessary, change it. They are the ones that deal w the county.

    Hi "Anonymous" I am sorry to hear this but I have no idea if you are actually a former or current client of ours because everyone seems to be happy with our services. We also do work with builders very well and change things as needed if they are in fact needed. Lastly, we never add in unnecessary items, we design to code and only add in extra items when asked to do so by our customers. I would welcome a lunch or coffee to clear the air. Feel free to get in touch with us at any point directly. Best wishes

    I'm an interior designer and Lance and his team have done great work on both residential projects and commercial projects I've been involved with in the past. They are easy to work with, thoughtful and are problem solvers. I look forward to working with him again in the future.

    Sunnyside Builders has worked with Lance and F9 Productions on two large custom homes and bottom line is they are a top notch architecture firm. Their designs are excellent, their responsiveness is unparallel to the competition, and their plans are extremely detailed for a smooth build. F9 Productions is the only architecture firm I've worked with who can get a set of plans approved by city planners in their first try and that's because they pay attention to detail and take pride in their work. If you want a great building design, great customer service, and a rock solid set of plans for your builder, then go with F9 Productions.

    You want these guys on your team...
    From start to finish Lance and F9 productions delivered what was promised, when it was promised and for the price that it was promised! I worked with Lance to design a new single family home for me in Arvada and although this was my first time designing a home, the process went off without a hitch. A lot of communication was handled through email but Lance was easily reachable by phone too. The design and review process was very efficient. When changes needed to be made I generally met with Lance in the F9 productions office where he made markups right there on his iPad, a week later I had a revised plan in my inbox. These guys are capable, honest and have a great portfolio of work. The final plans were delivered in January of 2017 and I just broke ground on my project yesterday!

    Great Architects
    These great Architects did the redesign of my 102 year old West Side Tavern. We went through a lot of city code and engineering issues but they were professional, innovative and really great to work with. I would recommend them highly.

    Innovative architectural firm
    F9 Productions is an innovative and efficient architectural firm. I've worked with F9 on numerous projects and it's alway a pleasure. Lance and Alex have a good understanding of how to incorporate the needs of the structural design in their work and it makes my work easier. Highly recommended!

  • Missy B. Aug 11, 2016
    I can't say enough good things about F9! I've worked with Lance and the F9 team on 14 home remodels over the last 6 years. They are not only very talented designers but they bring a level of professionalism that is rare in this business. Their ability to successfully take on a variety of projects, from remodels to modern homes to health-care facilities is a testament their team. Lance & Alex bring a great energy to every project they tackle and they're fun to work with! I'm always confident I'm in great hands at every stage of design & build. I'm looking forward to working with them more in the years to come!

    I couldn't have asked for a better firm for the design of my family's new house. This firm has an excellent sense of design that worked beautifully for the modern house I was looking for. They were wonderful to collaborate with! I appreciated their vision to make my home tailored to my family and our contemporary aesthetic. We are exceedingly happy with our home and the experience of working with F9.

    Absolute pleasure to work with. Lance and Alex were very courteous and prompt with information in designing our mountain home. We had many questions and they answered them all. In particular, they listened to what we wanted and suggested ideas when we didn't know what we wanted. Excellent service. Thank you!

    We had a project that involved extending our property line into an adjacent lot that we owned which required Denver's approval and then developed plans for a garage / studio and storage space of about 20 by 20. Because of the issues getting our property line moved (the process to get this accomplished with the city extended three plus months) the work was delayed. But Lance stayed in touch with us, and did well recalling our conversations and design goals. He delivered pdfs of the plans through each stage of the process considering various materials and layouts. Lance heard well our goals for the building and sensitively and in very timely ways completed the plans and revisions. Further, he is a resource to recommend those in construction. He has recommended contractors (from surveyors to general contractors as well as window and door contractors) that have proven to be quite reliable. My wife and I enjoyed working with him and his firm. I highly recommend him and his work.


What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We don't have standard pricing because there aren't standard design problems. Each client has their own unique design challenges and we custom tailor our pricing to each customer to give them the best bang for their buck!
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Ideally we like to first do a meet and greet at our client's place of business, residence, or plot of land they are planning to build upon. After that meeting we put together a detailed proposal outlining the design or drafting process. The process typically involves 3 stages: Schematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Documentation.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
North Dakota State University, Fargo, ND Master of Architecture May 2008 B.S. of Environmental Design May 2007 North Dakota State College of Science, Wahpeton, ND Building Construction Technology A.A.S. Degree May 2003
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Nearly every member of the team at F9 Productions grew up drawing, designing, and building. Along the way these skills have been honed and polished by each member eventually culminating into the now 7 person team that is F9 Productions Inc.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We have worked with nearly every type of customer and budget you could imagine including but not limited to: homeowners, business owners, entrepreneurs, furniture manufacturers, developers, nationally recognized builders, television producers including HGTV!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
One of our most fondly remembered recent projects is the Atlas tiny house. We began building Atlas in the spring of 2015 and filming with HGTV for a Tiny House television program. We completed Atlas in the Summer of 2015 and there after won our first international award with Atlas in New York City.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Please don't be afraid to give us a phone call or have a face to face meeting with us. We are friendly and gregarious with a congenial disposition. Anyone can design for you but at the end of the day actually wanting to work with someone can make all the difference.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Is my budget reasonable for what I am trying to accomplish? Is my timeline reasonable for what I am trying to accomplish?
