Frank Shirley Architects provides complete architectural services, from master planning and conceptual design to completion, including interior and cabinetry design.
Detailed as-builts, site analysis, zoning and local code analysis.
We work with the client to define the requirements for the project, how many rooms, the function of the spaces, etc. We begin each relationship with listening carefully about your unique needs. We then prepare a series of rough plans and elevations that reflect different conceptual approaches to the design requirements. We also recommend that the client selects a builder at this phase of the project so that rough preliminary pricing can be done to insure the project stays within the intended budget.
Once the schematic design is approved, we prepare detailed dwgs and specs for the contractor to establish final construction costs, obtain permits to begin construction and build the project.
If part of the project scope, we pride ourselves on designing and providing construction drawings for cabinetry and tilework that seamlessly works with the larger architectural vision. We provide a level of customization infrequently seen in modern construction.
We work with the client to establish an optimum frequency of site meetings, at which we monitor progress, address unforeseen conditions and make sure that the highest quality is maintained for our clients. We also review all shop drawings to ensure that the design intent carries through to completion.
