Licensed architects are trained specialists that help identify and design solutions to meet aesthetic and functional requirements for projects of varying scales and scopes. From residential renovations to commercial buildings to developing urban city plans, architects coordinate and manage design teams including engineering and construction professionals to ensure projects are built in compliance with building codes and zoning requirements. The invaluable expertise and perspective that an architect contributes to the design and building process enriches how we experience the built environment and its connection to our everyday surroundings.
