The design of your new commercial building will reflect your company’s brand, so it’s important to hire an architect that will work with you to design something that reflects your vision of the future.

If you’re trying to find the perfect architect for your upcoming project, here are a few things to keep in mind.

  1. Find an architect that feels like a good fit for the project.

Your new facility will represent your business’ brand and goals to both employees and the public, so it’s important to find an architect who will listen and understand your vision for the future, and how that vision can be represented in the facility.

At Miller Architects and Builders, we take the time to listen to our clients’ needs and prioritize our designs to match those needs.

  1. Consider a company that offers a variety of architectural design services.

Different architectural design companies provide different services. It would be beneficial to find an architect that offers a variety of architectural design services that can be customized to your individualized needs.

Design-build services, which Miller Architects and Builders offers, is one service that is advantageous if you’re hoping to get your project completed quickly and on budget. This service allows the architect and commercial contractor to work with each other from the start, allowing for the entire design and construction process to move forward seamlessly.

Another service that Miller Architects and Builders uses is Building Information Modeling (BIM), which provides a digitized 3D model of the building that all contractors can access. BIM allows for the project to go more smoothly because architects, as well as various contractors, will be able to integrate their designs and systems into the same building concept.

These services help keep the project on time and on budget.

  1. Check out an architect’s qualifications and previous work.

Be sure to look at an architect’s previous work to see if it resembles what you’re looking for in your new commercial construction project. It’s also important to make sure the architect you hire has experience and knowledge designing the type of facility you desire, so it’s smart to check their references.
