When Should You Contact an Architect? What Phases of Your Project Can an Architect Help With?
There is a common conception that the architect is the person you contact when you need plans for your project. That is only partially correct. In addition to your plans, a good architect can help you with many of the other phases of your project. Some of these services they will perform themselves and some of these services they can hire for you. At EVstudio our services have included:

Pro-forma, rent and cost analysis

The important thing to remember is that the architect has experience with most of the aspects of the project. They've seen many projects through. Choosing to involve them from the beginning to the end of the process will allow you to utilize their expertise and will allow them to help execute the right design for your project. Please feel free to contact EVstudio at any point in your process and we're happy to get involved with your project.
