Our Services

Architecture

The practice of architecture is constantly evolving, most prevalent in technological advancements. We continue to invest in the necessary training and development of industry wide best practices to ensure our staff are able to make best use of these technologies on all projects. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is used at various degrees of detail depending on the overall project scope and goals. The level of integration this provides from our office, to our clients, to our consultants, and to the field has been a valuable collaborative tool in our overall services.

Interior Design

Engaging our clients and end users through the design process and within their finished space, along side supporting their functional needs of a space, is at the heart of our design team. We carefully listen to our clients needs to design flexible, creative solutions that will carry forth and elevate their overall mission and vision. Today, more than ever, there is an increased need and awareness of integration throughout interior design. That can be within the scope of technology, or as far as integrating a clients staff and spaces with the larger organizational goals to create a culture that will last and evolve with the company.

Construction Administration

During the initial design process, we determine with our client the best construction delivery method for the project to assure we are starting off in the proper direction. We are experienced in traditional Design-Bid-Build, Construction Management Multiple-Prime and Construction Management-at-Risk deliveries. A successful project transition from design to construction and a successful project completion is best achieved with the integration of our team along side the construction managers or general contractors. We use our intimate knowledge of the project, our vision, and our trained eyes to help the contractor solve inevitable questions that arise during construction.

Procurement

Providing to our clients a single point of contact and resource for the transition from design to purchasing was the driving factor in 2010 for Architecture Advantage to offer such services. Our intricate knowledge of the products – whether it be furniture, finishes, accessories or equipment – allows for that transition to be seamless. We are also able to have detailed budgeting established during the design process minimizing the dreaded value engineering. Our team works to ensure timely communication with the client, contractor and installers on project status, delivery and installation guidelines.
