News....

Did you know?  We now provide Building Design Services!
    
After contemplating an expansion for some time, we are now helping clients with their residential and commercial building designs.  This includes ALL phases of the design process and we can help with Construction Monitoring as the you see fit or as the Code requires.  Do you have a project that will require a licensed Architect?  No problem!  We have many contacts and can help! 

The purpose of this expansion is to help our clients realize their dreams and goals by producing a well thought-out design on a well prepared set of drawings.  Ask any contractor; a good set of drawings saves confusion, and therefore your money, during construction.  There is value in good design!!!  And by trying to save money during the design process you can often limit the ultimate success of your project.  An ill concieved and thought out design will affect the way your building looks, feels, and functions in the end.  In other words.....its value!$$$

Chris has realized for years that the design process is daunting and has always tried to help.  Trained as an Architectural Engineer, Chris will tap into his training and bring his 27+ years of real-world experience to your project. 

See building design services for more information or contact us for a free initial consultation!
