We are extremely happy with our decision to hire Alridge Design Services. Jarvis was hired to take measurements of our home and create a 2D CAD drawing to share with our contractor. He was an affordable, professional alternative to an architect and brought his design expertise to the project. He was friendly, helpful, and I would highly recommend using his firm.

I work as a senior electronics mechanical packaging and PCB designer and have been consulting with aerospace/avionics companies, DoD/Defense contractors, various medical electronics firms, engineering design and development companies and lots more. I typically work with a team of engineers who have created a set of proven electronic schematics, which are then turned over to me in order to input all of the PCB footprint data for the PCB layout. I then go through the process to completely design the PCB, create the fabrication files, send those files to outside vendors to be fabricated and then also create all of the documentation drawings. In addition, I am also tasked to design whatever chassis, enclosure and housing is required for the project using either AutoCAD and/or SolidWorks (usually SolidWorks these days), as well as specifying and sourcing all of the electro-mechanical components and parts (i.e. connectors, cable assemblies, LEDs, switches, PCB-standoffs and all other hardware items) that the chassis, enclosure and housing will eventually need. I then also may specify and/or source the sheet-metal vendor. When all is said and done, I provide you with a "physical reality" which you can literally hold in your hands, all from an electronic schematic!

Joe puts a great amount of thought into his projects, which manage to be both creative and practical. His passion for landscape architecture as art is backed up with knowledge of how to design and implement projects in the real world--staying in budget and working with space limitations. He is also flexible in thought, calm, and pleasant to work with.

Verified review

Stephen did an exceptional job in visualizing and rendering a new facade to a 1960's style rambling ranch. The revision to the roof height and stone and brick work front proposed has radically enhanced the value and appearance of my No. Virginia home. He also designed a very functional 400 sq ft porch, tucked neatly at the end of the house abutting an out building completing the appearance of the house. Steve is very exacting and detail oriented. His conceptual abilities are complemented by his technical skills with current state of the art CAD software, enabling him to quickly change design concepts. His ability to offer conceptual drawings and estimates definitely hit the mark. I knew what he was going to do and how much it would cost. I would certainly use him again for other design and construction projects. I was overwhelmed by the creativity and alternatives offered, each with adjusted estimates. Selection of best offering based on time and cost was difficult because they all were inspiring but with some discussion a successful design was selected and implemented. I couldn't be more pleased.

I've worked with Chuck since 1975. I'm a contractor and he does all my, as built measure ups, which includes meeting with my clients to find out their desires, then with does sketch drawing with estimates on his auto cad, meets with my clients to go over and adjust the ideas, does working drawings and goes to the county for permits. I couldn't count how many times he has done this over the years for me and only has gotten better. There is no one that I'm aware of that comes close to his price and service.

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.
