Architecture & Design

Architect One offers a full suite of services through planning, design, and construction. We want our designs to create an experience for those who encounter the space both from the exterior and interior view.

We are Client Focused Problem Seekers

Often architecture is defined as “problem-solving.” With that understanding, our programming process is “problem seeking.” We work with the client and key stakeholders to assess the needs of each individual project and help make decisions to create an end product that will be beautifully designed, low maintenance, cost-effective, and efficient for years to come.

 

Critical Path

We take the time to analyze the end goal and work back to the knowns from today. This highlights items and needs that will be critical to the successful completion of each project. These needs are used to create goals and milestones, helping us assemble teams based on project needs and restraints - all while allowing us to maintain schedules and budgets.

Architect One has a proven track record of effectively and accurately managing construction schedules, often delivering a completed project ahead of schedule. Through effective communication, a clear understanding of the design intent and scope of work, anticipating any potential roadblocks, and back-filling the schedule based on the anticipated move-in date, we engage all parties involved to maintain excellent working relationships and exceptional customer service.

Services We provide

Master planning is critical in any design process. It helps schools, churches, communities, and businesses gain valuable information that provides lasting solutions for decades to come. When successfully executed, it connects people to their environment, both physically and emotionally. It evaluates every aspect, every “what if” and every possible scenario of a situation to find the best solution that ensures long-term economic growth and sustainability.
 
The Architect One discovery process, the first step in master planning, helps define the needs and goals of any project, determine who and what will benefit t, and set forth a strategic plan to accomplish those goals. This process can enhance the construction – from the pre-design process to space utilization and furniture selections. The success of a project often depends largely on how well you engage your community in the discovery process. Hosting design charrettes and interviews with community members and stakeholders can help discover unknown
challenges, respond to local needs, shape the project vision, and build support for development and design ideas. Our team will gather all the feedback to develop a plan to cultivate buy-in, build a fundraising strategy, introduce the project to the community, and connect local communities in which the project will serve.
 
 

Visualizing the Possibilities

Before construction begins, our team helps you visualize what your future space will look like through a series of architectural drawings, renderings, and 3D models.

Through BIM (Building Information Modeling), we provide a digital collaborative process of designing a model of the building in the most specific way possible. We incorporate the layout and function of the space that will help make smarter decisions for the future. This process allows the client and the architect to evaluate all aspects of the project, including form, scale, shape, and proportion, as well as identify durability and constructibility strategies.

 

HOW DOES BIM BENEFIT YOU?
Better planning reduces waste
Time tables that meet reality
Consistency in delivering projects on budget
Increased efficiency
Maintenance and projections automatically planned out
Simplified hand-offs between contractors and project managers

 

At Architect One, we understand the power of emotional connections to physical space. Every intimate detail is taken into consideration and plays a crucial role in the overall experience. Employees and clients, alike, are influenced by everything from signage and wayfinding to furniture positioning and paint colors. By working with our team of certified designers, we will create an experience that defines, inspires and engages all who occupy the space. Our strategic, thoughtful designs help shape the memories that occupants take with them, long after they leave.

Our team at Architect One has the expertise and knowledge
required to ensure any historic project is executed properly. We
evaluate every corner - ensuring code compliance, assessing
the existing building for future use, and maximizing upgrades to
incorporate conveniences of today while celebrating the past.
Preserving historic buildings is vital to understanding our nation’s
heritage. Re-imagining older spaces can solve several goals at
once - preserving historic buildings and the character they give
their neighborhoods, reducing waste and other environmental
impacts of construction, and creating unique spaces for modern
living.
