YOU HAVE AN ARCHITECTUAL TECHNOLOGIST ON YOUR TEAM. CAN YOU TELL US MORE ABOUT THAT ROLE?

  • An architectural technologist is well versed in construction and they do all their work on the computer
  • They draft house plans and provide 3D modeling that allows for virtual walk-through tours with clients
  • They draw and select furniture pieces that can then be purchased by the homeowners during the design process
  • Architectural technologists play a very important role because they help the homeowners imagine what their dream home will look like when it’s finished

WHAT ARE SOME TIPS FOR ENSURING A SMOOTH BUILDING PROCESS?

  • Look at the stigmas of building custom homes and learn from them
  • Put effort into the up-font of each project and set expectations
  • Don’t over promise and say you’ll do something that isn’t possible
  • Plan for as much as you can at the beginning to avoid change orders
  • Invest in your people and technology
