Choosing an Architect

The Top Ten reasons to choose EVstudio for your project:


We realize that you have many options when hiring an architect or engineer. These are the reasons that EVstudio is the clear choice:

1. EVstudio is your architect and engineer for life. We are willing and able to work with you on any project type and we will still be here in 10, 20 even 30 years. With other architects you have to shop around. With EVstudio you know that we’ll be able to help you on the next project whether its your home, your office, your child’s school or your neighborhood church.

2. We listen to your needs rather than applying a preset solution on your project. Yes, we have our own personal preferences and we will lead the design but we know that you’ll be the one living, working or playing in the space for many years. Therefore we do a very extensive programming piece at the beginning of each project and then work with you at each step to insure that we are meeting your goals.

3. We are flexible in our approach and will work with you to help you through the project. We have come to realize that each proposal that we provide to a new client is slightly different from any that we’ve done before. We tailor our services to meet your needs.

4. We have the experience necessary to design your project whatever the project type or style. We have experience in custom homes, multi family housing, offices, retail spaces, restaurants, banks, medical spaces, master planning, industrial buildings, warehouses, community facilities, schools, performance spaces and many other project types.

5. We will give you all of the information that you need to make decisions. If you have a question we will give you a thorough explanation. Our website and blog are indicative of our style.

6. We will explain our pricing to you and help you understand how the scope of the project ties to the fee. Our fees are standard rates and we clearly explain what is or is not included.

7. We have a broad range of ability that we bring to each project. In addition to our architectural knowledge we understand site design, structural design, electrical layouts, planning processes and other disciplines.

8. We have an unparalleled staff. This may sound a bit cliche but it is very true.

9. We have great references from our past clients. Please ask us and we can provide written letters of recommendation or give you contact information of past clients who you can speak with.

10. Finally, it is all about the quality of plans. We take great pride in the product and it shows. Each set is checked by the project designers and at least one principal architect or engineer before it goes out. Where there are tricky spots in the plans we draw the solutions. The plans are frequently cited as the reason we have many builders who only use EVstudio.
