A fully licensed and insured practice, E. Jane Wilson Architect provides architectural design and project services for architecture and exterior and interior design projects.
Initial Consultation: This is a free service the Architect provides. We visit your project site or my office to discuss your ideas and goals for a project. Following this discussion, the architect will provide a quote for further services.
Core Architectural Services: The core architectural design phases from schematic design through the permitting process are provided under an agreed contract. (See “The Project Process” for more detail). Our construction documentation is targeted to give the right information to you and to the contractor, as well as obtaining the building permits.
Sustainable Architecture: Good design includes incorporating sustainable practices. All of our projects incorporate sustainable design strategies that reduce the long-term operating costs to our clients. The strategies to be used for each project are defined in conjunction with the client early in the design process. Some of the strategies we use are solar panels, high insulation values, green roofs, daylighting, shading, advanced HVAC technology, and sustainable materials.
