While we’d like to get to know you better, you’d initially probably like to get a sense for who we are and where we’re coming from. That way, you can see the places we’ll get to, together. REspace launched in 2017 as a virtual architecture firm located in Collinsville, IL. The business concept has been percolating for more than 20 years. Founders and Architects, Eric Bratzler and Ryan C. Suess, realized early on in their respective careers that the sound use of current technology could be leveraged in the architectural field to make the process of creating architecture more efficient. As time passed, they watched more businesses move into the cloud, allowing efficient collaboration regardless of location. Bolstered by the growing number of architecture firms adopting this model, we believed the time was ripe to execute our vision. As a virtual firm, we spend our resources on smart technology and personal visits to meet with our clients face-to-face. Our hands-on approach allows us to offer high-end service with unprecedented accessibility and efficiency. This is a philosophical choice, and an unwavering commitment we make to our clients. Space, in an architectural sense, is about the parity of positive and negative; passive and active; interior and exterior. At REspace Design, we’re inspired by this dichotomy. We purposefully build a diverse team of professionals who lend different experiences, perspectives, and stylistic sensibilities to your project, which allows us to reimagine, redefine, and repurpose space in original and distinct ways. The commitment to our craft, efficient use of technology, and our customized, in-person services enable us to see our projects through our clients’ eyes. Whether we are designing your dream home, redesigning a commercial or office space, or developing a strategy to make an old structure more energy efficient, our goal is always the same: to provide every client with the space that fits their specific vision and lifestyle.

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.
