Some architects do charge for this initial discovery consult however AGA offers a free consultation for all new projects. It is AGA’s way of meeting a potential client and discovering whether or not we are a good match and how AGA can help you. However this consult is not intended for design input. It is strictly an introduction and a meaningful discussion so that I can understand the scope of the project. Sometimes these meeting occur in your home.In addition, if I can find your property on the internet and see many photos of your home it is possible to discuss your project on the phone. If it is new construction you will come to my office to discuss your vision.
