We have a wide range of architectural design experience in commercial office projects, ranging from historic renovations and interior fitouts to new construction. At Independent Design our belief is that truly listening to and understanding our clients needs is the best approach to a successful project. If you are planning a business renovation, to relocate, or build a new office in the next year, give us a call. We would love to be your commercial architect!
We begin programming services by meeting with all stakeholders to define all of the project goals, including targets for sustainable and environmental design. Then we collaborate with the client to develop schematic design options for possible solutions within the defined budget and schedule. If there are site-specific challenges such as zoning or environmental issues, we work with the town to develop a solution or apply for a variance. Based on client feedback, the selected architectural design is refined and developed into construction documents for bids. We offer bid review and advising services. Alternatively, we can work with the client's selected contractor from the beginning as a design-build relationship to streamline the process. Throughout construction, Independent Design provides Project Management services, performing site visits and construction control documentation as required by the local building authority. We provide a final construction punchlist and certify percentage complete at each phase prior to construction project completion.
