We specialize in all aspects of architectural services and pride ourselves on educating our clients on the design and building process as we guide them to a successful completion of their project.
Georgiou & Associates Architects provides a complete range of services to our clients.
Essential to the success of any project is understanding the operations, staffing, and requirements for the project that need to be translated into a building concept. We work with our clients to identify all the functions, uses, and equipment necessary to be incorporated into the building and site requirements.
Assemble the Programming requirements for the project and translate them into a building floor plan concept, elevations, and site layout for the project. We present options to the Owner to determine what works best for a functional successful project.
Working with a Concept Plan, we will determine the functionality, issues, and financial implications of the various concepts and options to verify that the project budget is sufficient. We can also review various finishes, mechanical, structural, and electrical systems to select the best option for long term benefit and life cycle costs.
The Owner’s preferred Concept Plan is designed for aesthetics, efficiency, functionality, and conformance to approved criteria. Design extends to all engineering disciplines as well as the architectural character of the finished building. The effort encompasses applying the design to construction documents that will be utilized for permitting and construction bidding.
Georgiou & Associates can provide bid support services including managing the contractor selection and subcontracting process. We will distribute construction documents for competitive bidding, review and analyze bids, and make recommendations to the Owner for selecting a construction contractor.
The construction phase of the project requires architectural and engineering input to review shop drawings, period site inspection, verification of construction progress to the owner for pay requests, and verifying final completion of the project for occupancy.
In addition, for the owner and client that requires assistance in the pre-planning and planning stages we offer:
- Site Selection Evaluation
- Zoning Conformance
- Zoning Variance Consulting
- Public Hearing Presentation & Assistance
- Financial Feasibility
