At Peckham Architecture, our sole focus is providing the highest level of customer service according to the highest standards of sustainability. The key ingredient here is you, our client. When you meet founder Nick Peckham, you’re almost certain to hear him say:
“I will design for you what you would design for yourself if you had been an architect as long as I have.”
We envision design as an interaction between environment and inhabitant. Deep green architecture makes this universally beneficial. Peckham Architecture’s client-focused, full-service design process guides you through every step in creating a deep green environment to live, work or play.
Here’s what you can expect:
First, we’ll work together to establish the goals and scope of your project. Once we’ve agreed on a floor plan, we’ll create a 3-D rendering for your approval. This allows you to visualize the interior and exterior spaces from all angles, including the light conditions at different times of day or year.
Next, we’ll create detailed construction documents and specifications for your approval. After your general contractor or construction manager bids the project, we’ll finalize the total cost and prepare a construction contract. During construction, we’ll monitor progress and evaluate applications for payment, seeing your project through to the last detail.
Within your first year of occupancy, we’ll return to conduct warranty evaluations. For some projects, we also plan for Post Occupancy Evaluations, a standardized way to gather data on your building’s performance.
For basic projects and cases where the scope of work is undefined, Peckham Architecture generally charges an hourly fee. Other projects use a fixed fee, which runs between 8 and 15 percent of construction cost.
For prospective clients not quite ready to pull the trigger, we also offer a flat-fee, no-commitment Project Options Report.
