What an Architect Can Do for You
Architecture involves much more than buildings. Architects take your vision and give it form, explore its possibilities, raise it to new levels, and then integrate it into your building site and the community at large. They bring not only design, but solutions.
For example, buildings currently account for over 40 percent of energy conservation in the U.S. Architects, using sustainable design practices, can help negate these effects. In fact, AIA members, through their Institute, have committed to making all new and renovated buildings carbon neutral by 2030. So tap the knowledge, efficiency, environmental awareness, and brilliant design that architects bring to any project.
The sooner you bring an architect on board, the more fully your vision can be realized - even exceeding your own expectations.
