Architectural services involve the planning and designing of buildings and spaces, incorporating the aesthetics and organization of structures while conforming to zoning, building codes, and safety requirements.
Architectural services also include the administration of construction contracts acting as the agent on behalf of clients. We must protect the client’s interests, assist in negotiating with contractors for bids, and verify that contractors construct the building as designed.
Many of our projects require extensive additions, remodeling, maintenance repair, and upgrades. Because most of these buildings are occupied at construction, comprehensive planning and phasing are needed to prevent disruptions to the Owner’s existing functions and daily operations. Our experienced staff has the knowledge required to plan these sequences and observe the construction to ensure disruptions are minimized.
Architecture typically brings to mind the exteriors of buildings. However, interior architecture is all about a sense of space, surroundings, a focus on aesthetic points of view and its emotional effects as well as its functionality for the facility’s people. We blend art and science to create, restore, or readapt the inside of buildings, like yours.
Services Provided: Site Master Plan, Site Plan review, Programming, Process plans implementation, bid format construction drawings. Special systems design.
The Challenge: The business plan required additional space to transition from traditional die making to future modeling and printing capabilities
The Solution: An addition was constructed for flexible growth options for equipment and additional employees. Training facilities were incorporated into the addition. Equipment space required tall structure allowing a mezzanine to be incorporated if required in the future.
That’s why we want to look at and understand your business plan or project goals to better advise you as to how we should proceed.
The majority of our staff have had prior experience in the construction industry, so we have a holistic view of every project. We bring that knowledge and expertise to every project we work on. We will bring it to yours, as well.
The Adkins Association Inc. has the wisdom and experience clients have counted on since 1958.
