In addition to architectural services, we also offer expediting services. This is a unique and powerful tool which we are happy to provide, as most architects outsource this aspect of the project. We have an in-house expediting team of experienced professionals.
Through our experience, we have discovered that providing expediting services in conjunction with our architectural services is the best way to serve our clients. All architectural projects involve considerations beyond architecture. Having an "architectural background" gives us a great advantage when preparing forms or meeting with plan examiners. Often, time is of the essence and we have the ability to move from a design sketch to filing of the applications within days.
