Interested In Working On A Project?

Services

PK Architects is geared to provide our clients with professional service and a total coordination of design, construction documents and construction administration from initial concepts to the completed project. We have only the best performing consultants, thereby ensuring the quality of the entire project.

Our services include; Master Planning, Conceptual Design, Design Development, Entitlement Packages, Construction Documents, Construction Administration, Construction Value-Engineering, Construction Administration Expert Witness, Interior Space Planning, and Tenant Improvement Plans.

The Process

Step 1
Once a preliminary floor plan is established, the architect sketches a conceptual elevation. This sketch may be sketched several times until harmony between all elements is achieved.

Step 2
The sketch is then transferred to a CAD format to create digital working drawings.

Step 3
At this stage, the building is brought to life with the application of colors and materials.
