His response was very timely. His pricing was reasonable and he expressed a willingness to assess and negotiate potential add on services if the need arises. He keeps me abreast of what to expect and is true to his word. I appreciate finding this reliable and competent man.

We hired GTZ Consultants (Luis) to draw up plans for an addition. He was extremely punctual and did an excellent job. My husband and I made numerous changes and Luis was helpful, receptive, and patient. He finished the plans in December and helped us apply for permits. Anything that we have needed and any questions we’ve had, he’s been responsive and willing to answer them months later. I highly recommend working with Luis and GTZ Consultants.

Luis and GTZ Consultants were indispensable to our renovation. We already had an idea about our design and layout, but needed someone who could translate these to architectural drawings and navigate the DC permit process. Also, we were managing much of the work ourselves and were needing someone who would be generous with their expertise for non-professionals. Luis not only met these needs, but he exceeded our expectations. He was prompt, professional, kept us informed throughout, and turned around high quality work very quickly. When we came across some potential issues in the process, he did not hesitate to help us with suggested changes and make updates to the plans and permits. Even during the early stages of the pandemic when DCRA was still working out their remote work practices, Luis secured our permits within weeks, when others were taking months. If you are looking for someone to translate your ideas into plans, to secure your permits, and to ease your concerns about the whole process, I highly recommend working with Luis and GTZ Consultants.

Luis was great start to finish! I had planned to apply for the county building permit myself for my kitchen remodel project but found that I was completely over my head in the very confusing (for a lay person) application process. Luis stepped in and took over the whole thing, much to my relief. He did a beautiful job on the drawings and report for the permit application. He communicated in a timely fashion and kept me apprised of the progress throughout, always responding quickly and politely when I had questions. He even offered to be available later if my building contractor has questions down the road. I highly recommend Luis and will use him again if I need a structural engineer in the future.

I had never needed an architect until I decided to add a portico to my home. My contractors contact was no longer available so I turned to Thumbtack. Luis texted and asked what I needed. He came to my house several times.... always on time and very respectful of my COVID concerns. Within a couple of weeks I had plans and a permit. Luis is VERY professional, easy to work with, a good listener, punctual and my plans look perfect.
