How We Work

THE INITIAL CONSULTATION

Upon first contact, Paredes-Grube Architecture will schedule an appointment for the Initial Consultation – the first meeting to discuss your needs and the requirements of your project in detail. For residential clients, this meeting takes place at your home and should involve all family members who will participate in the decision-making process.

THE PROPOSAL & FEES

Within two to three weeks after the Initial Consultation, Paredes-Grube Architecture will issue a written proposal describing the scope and cost of the architectural services.
Our fees are based on our own estimate of the architectural work and the corresponding hours required to complete the phases of our services.

ARCHITECTURAL SERVICES

We work hard to develop a thorough and accurate description of your requirements, the project scope of work, and any special limitations (e.g. zoning variances). Once the architectural process starts, the duration of our work depends on the pace of the Client’s decision-making during the design process.

CONSTRUCTION

We generally work with a large group of high-quality General Contractors who have earned our trust through their successful past service to our Clients.
We will meet with the bidding contractors and walk them through the project before the start of the bidding process as a part of our standard services to assure proper communication.
