David was prompt, professional and courteous from beginning to end. His work is, most importantly accurate but also delivered BEFORE schedule. I will definitely call on him again and recommend him without reservation. He measured and photographed a three story dwelling and then drew architectural floor plans for my professional use.

September 30, 2013 To Whom it May Concern: I have worked with FA for 17 years. She designed and provided the construction administration for the building on Union St. a 10-unit, mixed-use, historic, award-wining building that provides affordable housing in Lynn. She also designed a 31-unit artist live/work conversion of a factory in Central Square from schematic design through construction document. This work was used to successfully change the zoning and to obtain a building permit. She then designed a 14-unit artist live-work community on Green Street for a feasibility study. In non-housing work, she designed a school-based garden that won numerous. She also designed a community garden at a nearby park. She has been a pleasure to work with, from conception to completion. She has been very committed to helping us develop our projects. She listens closely to our physical needs and our budget constraints while making artistic choices that work. Sincerely, David Gass Executive Director, Linc (781) 789 8845

Boston Architects created very high-quality stair plans for me that were approved by the local inspectors right away. They are responsive, great listeners and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them for any project, from a commercial design to a smaller residential need such as mine.

    Contacted MTD Architects after seeing their award winning work in the Boston Globe Magazine. Mike has been able to take our ideas and integrate them into a series of wonderful and buildable concepts which only await our local Zoning Board of Appeals approval before we move forward with our renovations. Mike has great ideas, provides great value--most importantly in what he has brought to our project, with his creativity, listening and responsiveness--and fairness of price. MTD Architects has been a great find for me--you will do yourself a favor to get Mike involved in your design project.

      Our experience with Colonial Home Design was great from start to finish. Midway through the design phase, I had to travel for business. Ed was very accommodating of my time, and arranged for online meetings around my schedule. This kept my husband & I in the loop, and the process moving along nicely. All in all, we'd recommend Ed to anyone. The color renderings were a huge help to visualize our addition before construction started.

      Jay did a great job helping us create a functional small addition that blends seamlessly with our 1930's colonial. The importance of feeling that space was always there was not lost on Jay, from the careful placement of windows to align with doorways in the existing home to matching the woodwork in both spaces, Jay did not disappoint! He worked closely with our contractor to ensure the plans were carried out and modified when needed. We couldn't be happier with the end result, including his recommendation for furnishings! Looking forward to having him over for a celebratory refreshment to enjoy our new space.

      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.
