How We Work

Our Design Processes are categorized into various phases:  Initial Consultation, Preliminary Development, Design Development, Construction Documents and Construction Administration. Simply Architecture offers supplemental services on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us with any questions or requests.

Conference Room

Initial Consultation

We will provide a 30 minute phone conversation to speak about your project and to see if we are a good fit for your design needs.

 

After the phone conversation an Initial Consultation can be scheduled for a fee.
