- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have virtually zero Overhead and am able to quote very competitive fees based on that fact. My average billing rate is $150/HR. Inside a full-service Architecture firm of 30-50 employees a Principal's (which is my level of experience) rate will be $250-$350/HR. I prefer to work Hourly during the pre-planning and design phases, then use Lump Sum for preparing the Working Drawings, then back to Hourly during Construction. However, I am very flexible.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My best value to a Client is in collaborating to quickly and accurately establish the front-end project parameters - scope, budget, site evaluation, value engineering, project delivery approach, etc. This is where my many years of experience counts the most.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have an architectural degree from Texas Tech, have been a continuously licensed Texas Architect since 1976, and have designed dozens of commercial, educational, healthcare and residential projects over that time. I have owned three architectural practices, a real estate development company, an engineering firm and have been a Senior Exec for two different construction companies. I have also held a Real Estate sales license in Illinois and have served as an Arbitrator helping resolve construction disputes. I also taught construction contract administration at the University of North Florida.
