What makes our approach to Architectural Services different? What distinguishes Craig Polhamus Architect from other firms is that we use a client-centered approach in all that we do in providing our Architectural Services. This method is based on years of experience in providing services to many types of clients. We do this in a number of ways:
We encourage ongoing training and education so that we are knowledgeable of the latest materials and methods to produce optimum end results. We have created company standards for information management so that relevant project data is available to both team members and clients using secure cloud-based systems and file management. Many times, an hourly rate contract with a fee estimate or project budget works best to provide flexibility to obtain optimum results. We take pride in providing ongoing documentation so that information and decisions are communicated to all project stakeholders. We are flexible in what we provide as project deliverables. Many times, clients request limited drawings to minimize design costs due to their own in-house capabilities - a request that we are able to accommodate. We have even provided billingual documents and metric conversions as needed by the client. Specific client needs are typically met by matching specialized skills with project needs. Examples include, specialization in Historic Preservation, Structural analysis,Vertical Transportation to name just a few. We also have experience in almost every building type. Let us examine your specific needs and design aspirations to see if we can provide for you, Architecture for a New Environment!
