Architectural Concepts



Architectural Concepts and its team use several methods to develop accurate cost estimates.  These methods include computerized estimates; our historical project cost records, and crosses checks with contractors we have worked with on similar projects.  Our estimates are usually within 1-5% of the actual bid price.


Architectural Concepts and the owner's key consultants are involved in all cost control reviews.  To assist our clients in achieving their project goals while maintaining cost control, our team does value engineering throughout the design process.  This helps avoid cost overruns and costly change orders later on.


Architectural Concepts carefully reviews the drawings and specifications of the selected consultants.  Dimensional accuracy, avoidance of space conflicts, and readability of line work and notes are essential to providing quality professional documents.
