After learning a project I had started rehabbing a property in the city would require architectural drawing, I quickly sought the assistance of Thumbtack. Brett reached out promptly to my request and we had a time to meet and discuss the project withing days. His work was thorough and completed right on time. Could not be happier with my experience. As a Realtor and investor in the city, I will be using Brett again and recommending his services to clients and colleagues.

I highly recommend JB Design Group. I interviewed at least four other architect and JB Design Group provided me with the best quote for our project. Once the project started they were reliable and responsive. I look forward to working with them again if the opportunity presents itself.

Larry Berman was a true professional. He had a precise read on our tastes, and he provided design services that were 100% perfectly suited what we wanted. He is very knowledgeable in color and design, which made our project very easy to complete. All in all, he's a pleasure to work with.

We recently completed a house renovation and home theater project using Raphael Architects design and plans. Their attention to details and documentation on the plans made our job much easier. Michael even detailed a custom Audio/Video cabinet with ventilation space so the equipment would not over heat. The communication with Mike and his staff was always concise. They were punctual with their response to our questions. We look forward to working on another project with Raphael Architects.

Mr Gillis completed my project very quickly and with abosutely no difficulty at all. I have read the codes that needed to be addressed within the last couple of months and I found in speaking with Mr Gillis, on our first occasion, that he was well read up on the codes in question. Upon meeting Mr Gillis, he was very well organized and precise in what needed to be done. I would recommend his services to anyone. Very reasonable priced too.

About

I take the time to really listen to my clients, to hear both what they day and what they don't say. The best part of my job is taking a project and finding solutions that exceed the client's expectations. It's a great feeling knowing that you've improved someone's quality of life, whether through something as simple as a kitchen renovation, or as complex as a new entertainment facility. Every project, no matter the size, offers opportunities to do great design.

About

I have been helping people improve their home and work environments for 28 years. Because I am a small shop, my clients get personal attention from design concept to building permit. I work in 3D so the client is able to visualize the design as it progresses. I really love the team atmosphere of the design process. I see myself as an orchestra director between the client, the contractor and the building authority.

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.
