Whether the project is to expand the current building, renovate an existing structure for a new use, or construct an entirely new building, the project represents a major investment that will affect the productivity and efficiency of a business for years.
Architects have the education, training, experience, and vision to maximize your construction dollars and ease the entire design and construction process, but early involvement is key. By helping you define the building project, an Architect can provide meaningful guidance for your design. They can conduct site studies, help secure planning and zoning approvals, and perform a variety of other pre-design tasks.
When Architects are involved in the early planning stage, they gain more opportunities to understand your business, develop creative solutions, and propose solutions to reduce costs.
Additionally, because commercial buildings are considered public spaces, it is important to note that the Architect’s Act of Prince Edward Island requires that an architect be involved in the design of these buildings and/or renovations.
