We met with Gregory he came and looked at our lot. We presented him with a plan we liked that we wanted modified. He told us he could have us finished plans in 3 weeks. I understood it would be a lot of back and forth communication the first weeks to get everything correct.He never called and was terrible to return calls. 3 weeks passed and he comes back with a totally different floor plan. One that could not even be built with- in our budget. Even after that we decided to much time had passed and we would run with the new plan and cut out abunch of finishings wants to meet the budget new design at 14 weeks we still had nothing more. He would never return calls and many days would pass and we would get a little change on the plan by email something we didn't even want and we would have to fight to get it corrected. 14 weeks have passed and we have nothing more than a floor plan something I could have done myself. We paid a $2000.00 retainment that he will not return. We fired him! He is dishonest, a terrible communicator, and I have nothing to show he even knows his job! I would never recommendApr 30, 2016VerifiedGregory Hagmann Architect's reply
This was a very difficult client, with a difficult site and program. 1. They did present a plan, that did not work for the spaces they wanted They gave parameters for a huge garage for the house to sit on top. As for schematic drawings, look at the Hansen House. They paid a retainer that was minimal to the amount of services provided.
This was not a good match, we pulled the project from him after deadlines were not met.Aug 23, 2017VerifiedGregory Hagmann Architect's reply
This project was 95% complete when we ran into site modeling issues that I nor another qualified sketchup modeler could resolve. The project did take longer because of its complexity.
Great work and HelpJun 4, 2017
Gregory so far has been valuable regarding the process. Communication has been challenging with me being in Kansas and ge in Texas. My project is in Fortworth Tx. As of now I feel Confident things will fall into place. I hope to have things squared aeat by 9/22/18. As of 9/5/18 Gregory was at the house w/the owner in which my project was to take place. I have not heard or recieved an email yet. Best wishes!!!Sep 7, 2018Verified
Greg did a phenominal job from beginning to end on our lake house on Lake Richland Chambers. His attention to detail, collaboration with the builder, and experience and knowledge were outstanding. I would use Greg again for any new home or architecture needs.Jul 30, 2015Gregory Hagmann Architect's reply
Great Client to work with! Contractor even said this was the best house he had worked on, even above his own home. Brian did listen as I proposed a higher grade of window that the cheap builder aluminum type. We also had a western view, and they did help a bit with the solar gain. in the Great Room.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Full Architectural Services are around 5%-6% and higher. There are many other factors based on size and complexity that can determine the fee. Residential FEES: $4-5 per foot for projects under $500,000.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Consult with the client to determine the project scope. Prepare a Fee Proposal, Receive a Retainer Check Begin the Schematic Design Process Meet to discuss the plan direction Finish the Schematic Design Process with visual Exterior and or Interior Images Drawings submitted to Contractor's for Preliminary Pricing Design development - Further Design before construction documents...i.e. Finishes, Appliances, Plumbing and Lighting Fixture Sections. Construction Documents - Essentially building the project on Paper and inform the Contractor what to build as well as providing a Legal Document for Building. Bidding and Negotiation - Having multiple Contractors Price a Project and Discuss Options and many times Value Engineer. Contractor Begins Construction, Architect oversees contractors work and submits Payment Applications (this process is neglected by the client often, and can hurt the clients initial design aspirations, and quality of work, if not controlled by the Architect.) Final Punch list submitted to Contractor, followed by Final payment after work is completed!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes, we are required to have continuing education for our License.
