221 Construction is the company I will be using for all future home improvement projects. The owner (Don) is very professional straight forward. The crews that did the work are true professionals and the craftsmanship is second to none.

Job: Business startup/tenant finish in Shawnee Kansas What Went Well: Had a plan, had funds, how hard can it be... (Hard!)Started with City Planning, immediately determined that I was lost and in over my head, I needed expert help and needed it now! Looked for Architect and read the following profile for Bob Del Popolo: No project too small to bring your dream to reality. I pride myself with on time and with in budget and have worked with a multitude of General Contractors in the Kanas City area. I specialize if you want one stop shopping with the Design+Build experience domestically and internationally. My fees are competitive but offer a strong sense of integrity, leadership and communication skills. All true! I was blessed to find an individual that was experienced, professional, reputable, honest, tenacious, and had my (the client) best interest at the forefront of the project. I would be out of money and out of time if I had not found/contacted Bob Del Polpolo. This is the first review I have ever written for anyone and or anything! Chris Billings 4/15/15

Nick was able to come by our house and come up with a plan for our remodel (turning the attached garage into living space) in less than a week- perfect since we already had contractors lined up. The 3D drawings were all our contractor needed, although a few more visits from Nick during the nearly 6-week job would've been beneficial for some of the little things. Overall a great guy with an awesome eye- responsive, easy to reach, fairly priced, and mindful of our budget. We had a great experience with Nick.

I worked with Scott from Construction DesignWorks to complete a space in my basement for a commercial kitchen. Scott was very detailed, on time, neat and very thorough. After the initial consultation, Scott sent me a plan drawing and detailed scope of work. It was over a month before I was ready to move forward. Scott never pushed me to get started before I was ready. There were no surprises and no 'add-ons' to the invoice. He asked for my input during the construction to make sure I understood his process and that I was happy with each step. I would definitely use Scott again and recommend him!

Our initial architect left us with little to nothing and then up popped Mike's name. We came to him with just a basic floor plan, an idea, and our dream. We only had one small concern, "THE KITCHEN". Mike was able to take our plan, which we were ready to bail on, and make our kitchen exactly as we had intended. During the design of the kitchen, he also made a few other suggestions on how we could rework a few items giving us more space and less dead space and in doing so, we added a mudroom and a guest coat closet without increasing the square footage by more than eight square feet. Mike was easy to work with and focused on one thing "Make it right the first time". In the end, we are very pleased with the final drawings and detail that he provided. He wanted to make sure that we knew what was going into our house and that we were able to understand the little intricacies involved. Thanks Mike

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.
