Future clients are often curious as to what an architect actually does. At AGA our basic responsibilities include: designing a residential project for a client. This includes new houses, renovations, alterations and additions. The focus is designing to your, (the client’s), needs reviewing the design with and completing construction documents. In addition, we look at zoning requirements and building codes to insure a quality finished project. If an issue comes up during construction AGA is there to provide any remediation as required. Some architects will provide additional services such as reviewing all shop drawings, select finishes and fixtures, help in selecting a contractor, attend weekly site visits and monitor your costs. AGA does not provide these services and this is how we can make the project more economical for you.
Once a set of drawings is complete, AGA’s job is complete, except as described above should your general contractor go rogue or make an error or need clarification on some unknown condition prior to work.
