Churchward Architecture PLLC
Architects and Building Designers in Plainview, NY
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsFebruary 4, 2021
My husband and I bought a house with some problems that we didn’t realize were there, the biggest of which was an unpermitted finished basement. When we decided to renovate, we asked Ryan to come in and help us design a space which would both work for us and bring the house up to code. We did not make a mistake with that choice. Ryan came in and took a few measurements, then spent time talking to us about what we wanted in our basement. We had some vague ideas (a laundry area for me, an office space for my husband, and some storage). Ryan took our simple thoughts and turned them into a plan for an amazing basement. He found ways to maximize the light and storage space in our basement that we never thought possible. He gave us everything we asked for and more with those designs. It didn’t stop there, though. Ryan continued to help us navigate the insanely complicated permitting process with our local authorities. He handled all the paperwork for us, picking up forms and dropping off checks at the town. He was here for inspections to help us with the inspector. He worked with us, our contractor, and the town to help resolve the additional unpermitted work that was found in our house during those inspections. He made sure we got the safe, up to code, legal (permitted) house we wanted and reduced our stress level during the whole thing. He was a godsend! I don’t think we could have made it through that work without him. If we ever decide to do more work on our house, he is most definitely our first phone call.

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsOctober 17, 2013
We work with Hierarchy Architects frequently. Not only do we enjoy their easy-to-work with manner, but our clients do as well. TJ Costello is an honest, friendly gentleman who brings a unique brand of intelligence to every project. TJ's approach to a job is always multi-faceted, seeing not one, but several solutions to the renovation. In the end, his work is seamless to the environment; an outcome that always exceeds expectations. When Hierarchy is on the job, you can rest assured that their years of know-how and soup to nuts oversight will be instrumental to the getting job done right the first time.
PKAD Architecture & Design
Architects and Building Designers in Plainview, NY
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMarch 25, 2021
I highly, highly recommend PKAD. We found PKAD after a few very unsuccessful and frustrating interactions with other architects that kept ghosting us or architects that we would have to wait weeks for simple email responses. The difference between those architects and PKAD is night and day. PKAD was able to give us the fee for our project right up front (something other architects we talked to wouldn't do). At our first meeting Frank provided us with a breakdown of payments along with deliverables, which was amazing. Frank and his team are true professionals, they respond to every email and phone call. Frank has been extremely knowledgeable, helpful and attentive to all of our concerns and he truly cares about our project. If he doesn't know the answer he goes out of his way to find out and report back to you. In addition, the technology they use is far above anything we expected. 3D scans of your entire house are made available on their website within your secure client portal; they then upload your new plans there as well, which allows you to easily share your entire project virtually with contractors, family members, etc. The client portal has been so helpful for us as we get bids from contractors; the contractors don't have to keep coming back to the house, they can see everything from their computer, even download the architectural drawings, which has been a huge help all around. Frank took the time to introduce us to reputable contractors who have also been a pleasure to interact with. I highly recommend PKAD for your next project.
Gustavson Dundes Architecture & Design, LLP
Architects and Building Designers in Plainview, NY
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsMay 17, 2016
Gustavson Dundes provided complete architectural and design services for a redesign and renovation of a 1950's Cape home , and transformed it to a modern colonial. The project was challenging in that the footprint of the house was narrow, and my wish list was long! GD excelled in ensuring the efficient use of small spaces. In particular, the family room includes a desk area and a small bar. They were flexible and listened to my concerns throughout the project. When I decided, rather late to flip a tub from the master bath to the guest bath, they made the change easily. They worked closely with the contractor and monitored progress through out.
Diversified Design Associates Architects, P.C.
Architects and Building Designers in Plainview, NY
Average rating: 4 out of 5 starsJanuary 29, 2014
I consider Diversified a design team, as well as a top sub-contractor, who not only identify the right construction solutions but understand a project from an architectural, engineering, and interior design perspective. I have employed Diversified to provide me with all three services, architectural plans, engineering work (including obtaining obtaining permits) and subcontracting work. Diversified does a good job in holding the subcontractors accountable that work is done well and on time. They ensure subs work in concert with one another so there are relatively few lapses in work as compared to other firms. I have not been stuck with a punch list that takes months to address. They address issues and problems right away. My level of satisfaction is so high, I have hired Diversified to work on two different houses. The first time I have ever hired a contractor more than once. The work on my first home was so well done and had such a positive impact on our curb appeal, the house was sold in 3 days! I employed them the second time when I needed a firm who could move quickly in making my fixer upper move in ready (they even helped me out in the aftermath or Super storm Sandy). While the work may be a tad more expensive, it was worth the extra investment to make sure the end product was well done. I absolutely recommend Diversified.

My husband and I, after perusing about 500 house plans this winter, finally decided on one to build. We contacted Joel Davis, and we purchased the plan. Because we intended to make several changes, he forwarded the PDF file to the company which provides modification services for them. I asked Joel whether the house had ever been built, and he researched and found the information for me. The nearest family who had built the house that we had chosen was located only a 6-hour drive from us. I contacted them, spoke with the wife at length, and she invited us to come down and actually see "our house". This was really a great opportunity, as you can imagine. They were kind enough to host us for 4 hours; we got the opportunity to look at every cubby and closet, to ask them endless questions - and we got a slide show of the construction process as their home was being built. Well, a long story shortened... we knew this house was not for us! It was immensely larger than we had envisioned. We had simply liked the floor plan, but had really not had an accurate vision for how large the rooms would be. I contacted Joel and explained our dilemma. He really went to bat for us, contacting the architect and explaining the whole thing. Because we had never actually received anything - no plans or PDF files, he was able to refund our purchase. We were really pleased that he also sold our "second choice" plan - another architect's work. He really cared that we were happy with our choice and that we were building a house we would be thrilled to move into. I can't say enough good things about this company! I would guess that most businessmen in Joel Davis' position would simply tell us, "tough luck!" and be more concerned about keeping their architects happy. I would highly recommend using their service when choosing your house plan.

Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsDecember 30, 2013
A kitchen renovation turned into an expansion of the room. Michael was recommended to me by my brother-in-law who also builds large projects. We found Michael to be prompt in returning calls, on time with appointments and most of all full of great ideas! He showed us his extensive portfolio and we were truly impressed. He is easy to work with mainly because he's a great listener.

The Design Build Pros helped me visualize my new kitchen before it was built. Their budget paperwork allowed me to prepare for all the costs for the project and they helped me find a great remodeler. I will call them to help me with my next project.
EBA - Eric Baker Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Plainview, NY
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsApril 27, 2014
Eric Baker recently served as architect on a very challenging repair project to our hurricane damaged home. Despite the difficult circumstances, he made us feel at ease from the beginning, and was a calming influence through every step of the project. We were very satisfied with the design and the finished product, but equally important, I want to emphasize that Mr. Baker was professional, trustworthy, honest, reliable, and listened closely to our requirements. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking excellent architectural work.

I have on several occasions hired architects-designers, but Bob stands out head and shoulders above everyone. Bob listens carefully to your needs, and brings extensive expertise and creativity to his work. Bob created a new walk-in closet for us, and we ended up with a result that exceeded my vision for it — and well within budget.
